When a child's Emotional Intelligence is low, you will notice that they:
Low Emotional Intelligence can affect so many areas of a child's life, and can prevent them experiencing a normal, happy childhood.
It can also drastically reduce their ability to build a happy and successful adult life.
But it doesn't have to be this way!
The workshop is made up of three sections:
In the first section we explore what emotional intelligence actually is, by looking at a couple of definitions and unpacking them to understand what they mean in relation to children. We also look in depth at what an emotionally intelligent child would be like.
In the second section we look at why it is so important for your child to develop their emotional intelligence. Drawing on the results of 2 noted studies on the subject, we also look at why the measurement of a child's emotional intelligence is a much more accurate predictor of their success and happiness than any standardised tests or the measurement of a child's IQ.
In the third section I share lots of fun, imaginative and practical ways that you can help your child develop and increase their emotional intelligence, focussing on 3 key indicators.
These indicators are the most important building blocks for high Emotional Intelligence in children.
Are happier and more relaxed
Are able to talk more easily about how they feel
Are able to manage their emotions, which includes handling fear, anxiety, anger, sadness and worry in an appropriate and proportional way.
Are more self-motivated, and can keep working toward a goal, expecting success.
Are better able to pay attention, and are more engaged with academic learning
Are able to handle the emotions of others and build healthier relationships with family, friends and others

Learning Emotional Intelligence is one of the most important and powerful ways to not only improve your child's confidence and self-esteem now, but also to guarantee them a happier and brighter future!
I really hope you will give your child the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques I'll be sharing in the workshop because I promise they will not only help them now, but for the rest of their lives.
