For Parents

DCRC is committed to promoting partnerships between the most important adults in a child’s life, namely, parents (and other family members) and teachers.

In addition to our award winning teacher resources, the ideas offered in this section will provide families with activities, strategies and resources that promote resilience and social and emotional health in children, and in themselves!

  • Overview of Resilience and Social and Emotional Health
