Nowdays it’s thought that IQ is not enough to be successful in life. Research indicates that the greater mastery our kids have of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), the more fulfillment they’ll have in life. EQ is the ability to recognize, express and regulate one’s emotions.
Kids with high EQ do better in school, are more cooperative with parents, are healthier, happier, and choose friends who are closer to their own parents and less likely to engage in risky behaviors.
What is behind the EQ?
The idea is much easier to say than to do, but lucky EQ can be taught and trained. Parents can cultivate EQ in their children.
Emphasize doesn’t mean agree, but parents have to give a clear message that a kid’s position is acknowledged.
When we stifle the child’s anger, we don’t switch off his feeling, we just force him to repress his emotion. The anger does not fade away, it’s trapped and looking for a way out. Being under conscious control it pops out uncontrolled, sometimes manifesting as a nightmare or nervous tic. Let them express their emotions in moderate and controlled ways.
“You seem worried about the field trip today. I used to get nervous on field trips too, in kindergarten. Want to tell me about it?”
Most of the time, once kids (and adults) feel their emotions are understood and accepted, the feelings lose their charge and begin to dissipate. This leaves an opening for problem solving. Sometimes, kids can do this themselves. Sometimes, they need your help to brainstorm. But resist the urge to rush in and handle the problem for them unless they ask you to; that gives kids the message that you don’t have confidence in his ability to handle it himself.
The most important thing you can do to encourage emotional intelligence in your child is to regulate your own emotions. Very often we forgot to discipline our expressions in front of kids. Taking control of our own emotions we frame right attitude and behavior in our children
In a time when your kid faces intense feelings which he may not know how to handle, or you notice a negative pattern developing, the best remedy is to step in with a game. Just start to play.
Try converting the situation into a game settings. In a game, a kid has a superpower and easily can fight and defeat any monsters 🙂
Adults pack childroom with lots of toys, but only a few of them deserved kid’s attention and stay as cherished possessions for an extended period of time. The rest gather dust under the bed. It’s no wonder then that when a kid endows her lovely doll with the magic of life, the toy becomes a confidant and comrade in games.
You can help create the miracle of empathy.
1️⃣Present a doll in a unique way. Instead of just holding out the packet with one more toy, make it a performance. Let the toy come to the kid itself. Teddy can ring the door bell, McQueen can honk from the entrance hall.
2️⃣Create a name and story about toy. Together, make a history for the toy. Where does it come from? How old is it? Does it have friends and, if so, who are they?
3️⃣Tell your kid how the toy has been made. Of course, it depends on their age and interests, but the real story of the manufacturing process: a tree was chopped, then delivered to a joinery where it was handled, assembled, colored and finally packed for you; shows how much effort was put into the toy, how many people stand behind a small plaything in their hands. Obviously, a kid with such knowledge will feel the unique value of the present and see his involvement in the final product.
5️⃣Describe the character of the toy. With the child, think about the doll’s personality. What does she like or dislike? What makes her happy or sad? Let the child open his imagination and assist discreetly.
