Resilient children and adolescents respond more to contact with other human beings; additionally, they are active, flexible and can easily adapt, even from a very young age. They are ready to respond to any stimulation, can easily communicate, demonstrate empathy and affect, and have prosocial behavior. As a result, resilient children have a tendency to establish positive relationships even from an early age.
