Abstract: This paper is a descriptive study which attempts to explore the concept of resilience in relation to coping skills in preschoolers in Singapore. Semi-structured interviews were conducted (during the period from September to November 2010) with 20 children, ages 48 to 60 months (M= 53.35 months, S.D. =4.28; 12 boys and 8 girls). Results reveal that the most commonly reported stressful situations were related to conflicts with people, such as parents, siblings, and friends. Results also reveal that “Using individual active actions to solve the problem” (29.07%) and “Seeking Social Support” (22.68%) were the two most commonly used coping methods. This may suggest the importance of having a strong social support network and increasing skills competency in training a child to be resilient in the context of Singapore.
