3 Practices to Raise an Emotionally Intelligent Child

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the awareness, expression & self control of our own emotions; & the ability to get along with others, with empathy.

Here are 3 practices to cultivate emotional intelligence in your child:

Cultivate an environment for your child to safely express any emotion…. Sharing our feelings with safe people helps us feel more in control of our own emotions.

Teach your child to name their emotions… Naming emotions activates a calming response in our brain. For younger children start with naming the basic emotions: Happy, Sad, Scared & Angry

Encourage empathy in understanding others & themselves... Empathy is the capacity to see a situation from another’s perspective. You can encourage empathy by using it in conflict resolution, or by reading books with characters that go through different situations.
