Having a Mom Tribe matters…a lot.
Over on my consulting (Your Child and Family Solutions) website , I shared about how having your own tribe helps your kids out as much as as it helps you. Of course, this is true for any parent or caregiver, whether you’re a mom, a dad, a grandparent, a foster parent, or a teacher.
In a nutshell, research has consistently shown that surrounding kids with positive, nurturing relationships like those exhibited in strong, supportive networks of adults (i.e., tribes), significantly increases the likelihood of at least three things for our children:
- Overall good health and well-being
- Resiliency— the ability to successfully face adversity
- Cooperation, motivation, and school success
So, just imagine how powerful it is to connect with your tribe, especially when you or your child are overwhelmed or hurting!
