Even the most significant technological and medical advances of the 21st century have been tempered by the increasing risk posed to children in the form of such stressors as poverty, victimization, and family dysfunction. To overcome such challenging societal pressures, children must become skilled in navigating through these turbulent times. With the proper support from parents, extended families, and communities, children are much more likely to experience positive development rather than dysfunction in their adult lives.
