Emotional intelligence is a child’s ability to perceive, understand, and effectively manage their own feelings. It is also the ability to read subtle cues and relate empathically to the feelings of other people. Emotional Intelligence leads to greater mental health, better academic and professional functioning, excellent social functioning, better physical health and more personal happiness. More than a buzzword, it is a phrase that brings long deserved attention to the importance of feelings and emotions in our everyday experience. We are learning more and more about how the foundations of emotional response and attachment are set in the earliest months and years of life, and how these foundations determine in large part the degree to which we do or don't flourish as adults in relationships, socially, at play and at work. Studies show that emotionally intelligent children are healthier both physically and mentally; they do better in school, get along better with their peers, have fewer behavioral problems, and become successful leaders. They are more resilient, soothe themselves more easily, have better emotional regulation and manage stress and distress more easily. Emotional intelligence is learned, and you as the parent are your child’s first teacher. In this 90 minute workshop we will define emotional intelligence as it pertains to each stage of development. We will help you draw on your parental expertise and style, and guide you in nurturing your child’s ability to make connections between their thought and feelings. Time for questions and answers is provided.
