I had to look the word resilient up in the dictionary. Maybe I didn't have a clear understanding of this adjective that is frequently used to describe children and how they respond to many of life's challenges. When talking honestly and openly about our children and Parkinson's, we keep hearing "kids are resilient." As if to discharge those little bodies with large minds and their journey through life with a parent who has a life changing illness. Often when you state a worry about your child and how they are processing things, you are dismissed.
Taken from Merriam-Webster Dictionary, it reads: Resilient: Able to return to an original shape after being pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc..
