As a mental health expert I help adults increase their Emotional Intelligence (EQ), consequently, I see the positive effects of emotionally intelligent parenting almost daily. Youth learns about lot's of important things at school except for how to manage one's emotions such as anger, anxiety or just simply feeling "crappy". However, these skills are arguably more important than other forms of intelligence.
One of the best things you can do as a caregiver (parent, grandparent or teacher) is to experience ways to raise your child/teen's EQ. It can have life-changing effects.
The seminar will cover these topics and more:
Self-awareness. Knowing our own emotions.
Self-regulation. Being able to regulate and control how we react to our emotions.
Empathy. Understanding the emotions of others.
Social skills. Being able to build social connections.
Parenting from the inside out. The effect of one's own parenting experience on current parenting styles.
Mindful parenting. How to stay present with your children.
