We do not only prepare our children academically, we also prepares them to cope up with life's pressing issues.

I present to you TIIF Resilience Dance Crew.

“This dance is called the Resilience Dance.

Resilience is something we have and that we develop when we overcome difcilties and problems.
The more we have the better we are at coping with problems – learn how we can help each other develop it.”

  1. What could it mean in life to ‘Fall Down’ – think of examples EG a friend or relative saying or doing something you did not like…doing something wrong in a lesson…taking something that did not belong
    to you and getting into trouble…dealing with a difcult time like school closing and lockdown because of Covid-19 etc
  2. What could it mean in life to ‘Get Up’ when you have ‘fallen down’? EG getting the courage to talk to a friend or relative who has said something you did not like and telling them how you feel…finding ways to keep happy and busy during the lockdown etc
  3. Why might you ‘Feel Strong’ once you have ‘got up’ EG – feeling good that you have tried what you can to solve a problem between yourself and a friend or a relative – even if it did not work–you tried! Etc
  4. ‘Why do you think we also stepped back one step after moving forward?’ We move three paces forward when we show resilience bit often there is an obstacle in our way pushing us back –this might be ourselves or other people or other challenges that come up.

Developing and showing resilience is not an easy movement forward. Sometimes we might feel we move more than ‘one step back. When children can fall down and get up in life and not just in dance you are Superbetter Children! Falling down can be called a Challenge. When we fall over, the thing we need most at this moment is to get up and keep trying.

Love you all.
