Children with good emotional intelligence skills have been found to perform better in school, make better choices and manage complex social situation better than others.

Fortunately, emotional intelligence is a set of skills which can be taught and nurtured in our children – and the sooner we do, the better their ability to manage life’s ups and downs and become successful in life.

What is emotional intelligence (EQ)?

Emotional intelligence refers to our capacity to understand and manage our emotions. This has an influence on how we make decisions, how we deal with relationships and our ability to self-motivate.

The skills involved in emotional intelligence are self-awareness, emotional regulation, empathy, motivation and social skills.

As a parent, these are skills which you can nurture in your child to ensure that they grow to be well-adjusted, empathetic and sociable beings. While most children learn these skills as they grow and interact, there are certain things you can do with your child to help them cope better and be happier.
