Having Strong Coping Mechanisms, What Came Before

In certain instances, it is not so much what young people are told in their home environment growing up, but what they observed in that environment:  Learned behavior.  By watching the grownups deal with the busyness of complicated life situations in a calm manner, repeatedly, those young people are able to emulate those skills later in their own lives.  Those healthy skills are turned on automatically.

Strong coping mechanisms are important for a healthier mental existence.
