Resilience is one of the biggest self-development buzzwords. Everybody wants to be more resilient yet anxiety and depression in young children has hit an all time high.
Daisy Turnbull knows this all too well.
The author, mother of two, and director of wellbeing at St Catherine's School has researched different parenting styles extensively and one thing is clear. The rise of helicopter parents, who are protecting their kids from risk is leaving us with a bubble wrapped generation with stunted independence.
So what can we do as parents? And what does it mean to be a good mother?
She chats to Mia about parenting and the surprising link between risk-taking and resilience.
