7 Tips for Raising an Emotionally Healthy Kid

Emotionally healthy kids don’t just survive. They thrive.

That’s according to Stacey Doan, PhD, professor of psychological science at Claremont McKenna College in California and coauthor of Nature Meets Nurture: Science-Based Strategies for Raising Resilient Kids.

When kids are mentally healthy (a term often used interchangeably with emotionally healthy), they reach milestones in social and emotional development; have strong social skills; cope well with problems; function at home, school, and in their communities; and have a positive quality of life, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Who wouldn’t want that for the kids they love?
