Growing Children’s Emotional Intelligence with Melissa Strader

Children jumping
Event start
Young people with well-developed emotional intelligence (EQ) earn higher grades, stay in school for longer and make healthier choices. In fact, emotional intelligence is a greater predictor of a child’s overall success in later years (relationships, career, health, general effectiveness and quality of life) than their IQ (Intelligence Quotient). What that means is that regardless of a child’s IQ, it is crucial for parents and teachers to help children build their emotional intelligence.

Join Melissa as she explains what emotional intelligence is; why we need it and how we get it.
