The Other Kind of Smart: Enhancing Your Child's Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence is essential for academic and life success, perhaps even more so than cognitive ability. This involves awareness and understanding of one’s own feelings, skills to manage strong emotions, and the ability to relate to the emotions of others. Join two Kingsbury psychologists to learn how parents can coach their children through the turbulent world of childhood emotions to develop stronger emotional awareness, greater self-control, and closer connections with others.
