Real tools for parenting with patience, and helping your child develop emotional intelligence—an essential character trait for succeeding in our highly social world.
If you’re like many parents, you may wonder what’s going on inside your child’s mind when they throw a temper tantrum, refuse to cooperate or become overly excited. Written by two experts in child development and education, The Emotionally Intelligent Child offers a groundbreaking approach for understanding your child’s behavior in the context of their development, as well as tips for parenting with compassion, and strategies for helping your child build emotional intelligence—a key element of success in today’s world.
In the book, you’ll learn all about the stages of development your child goes through as they gain social awareness and emotional balance—and how you can nurture this development using the author’s innovative MIND framework.
By shifting your thinking from an adult viewpoint to a child’s, you’ll discover how you can scaffold and support your child’s social and emotional learning; and ensure the development of prosocial behavior, impulse control, and perspective taking. This shift in viewpoint will also help you gain more patience as a parent, respond with less reactivity, and—most importantly—cultivate more joy together as a family.
