I was wondering if there is a type of training or coaching method that could actually help a young skater to develop resilience. On my opinion, resilience is key. It helps to balance self esteem and criticism and helps people to bounce back from difficult situation that everyone inevitably meet. Resilience is also very important in everyday life, but I don't think it's always taken seriously as it should. In order to test resilience someone has to deal with negative/ unpleasant aspects of life. Obviously a kid doesn't have the emotional maturity to evaluate events in an on objective manner. But what if he/she is taught to deal with negativity in a healthy way? Family should provide this at first, but coaches or teachers might contribute. Since they are part of a child education.
