Parents cherish and dream that children grow up and become adults as happy, contended and successful persons. Today's school environment is aggressive and only those survive who can face innumerable challenges that their classroom and peers pose both in studies and other activities. Furthermore, due to the occurrence of school violence, bullying and anxiety, it is very critical that parents assume their responsibility to teach and train their children very vital emotional skills that eventually lead to the development of emotional intelligence (EI).

Experts like Goleman state that children who possess higher values of EI are more likely to score better in standard tests, become less aggressive, develop friendship with others, display a stable and tolerant mind and have better body and mind.

IQ comes along with birth and there is a limit to which parents can try their best to make their children smart and intelligent. However, EQ is not acquired completely with birth. Rather, it is to be nurtured, trained and developed over the growing years to make children mentally alert and emotionally competent. If IQ connotes intelligence in children, EQ denotes mental toughness, patience, tolerance and ability to live a life full of mental happiness. I hope this issue will help. Have a nice day!

Thought for today:
"What really matters for success, character, happiness and lifelong achievements is a definite set of emotional skills - your EQ - not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests." - Daniel Goleman

Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
By Daniel Goleman

Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our "two minds" - the rational and the emotional - and how they together shape our destiny.

Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart.



Raising An Emotionally Intelligent Child The Heart of Parenting
By John Gottman,Ph.D

Every parent knows the importance of equipping children with the intellectual skills they need to succeed in school and life. But children also need to master their emotions. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is a guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally intelligent children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships.

Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will equip parents with a five-step "emotion coaching" process that teaches how to:

  • Be aware of a child's emotions.

  • Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching.

  • Listen empathetically and validate a child's feelings.

  • Label emotions in words a child can understand.

  • Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation.

In the beginning was the word
The Economist Feb 22, 2014

THE more parents talk to their children, the faster those children's vocabularies grow and the better their intelligence develops. That might seem blindingly obvious, but it took until 1995 for science to show just how early in life the difference begins to matter.
