Building Social and Emotional Intelligence



If you have never heard of EQ, then this post is just what you needed. EQ is great way to teach children coping skills and how to better their self-esteem.

Social and emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, assess, navigate and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups. These social and emotional skills are grounded in the ability to be self-aware, to demonstrate empathy, to manage ones emotions and to successfully manage conflict and relationships with peers and family members. Studies show that one's EQ (social and emotion IQ) is the best predictor of a child's future achievement; better than any other single factor. EQ is a better predictor of success than IQ and technical skills combined. (taken from site)
