Schools and parents teach and evaluate children every day.
We give classroom tests to determine if the student has learned the subject.
We use bathroom scales to evaluate their weight.
We look at report cards to ensure they are progressing academically.
If they are playing a sport, they have to attend the “try-out”, to ensure the teams are picked fair.
Adults do this “evaluating” out of love.
We want to make sure our children are growing up, learning and maturing in track with their age group.
Yet currently, our schools don’t have a structured process to teach EQ skills (emotional intelligence) or emotional maturity.
In our present day, schools don’t have a structured process to evaluate emotional maturity in our children or teens.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if our public schools regularly taught our children:
-How To Overcome Anger and Anxiety
-How To Balance Screens With Diet and Exercise and Outdoor Activity
Our team of Coaches here at Parenting Modern Teens teach teenagers EQ skills every day.
We love this important coaching work.
We are able to see how quickly teenagers learn our EQ skills and then apply the tools to their everyday life- which in turn, change their lives for the better.
Furthermore, we have discovered how to evaluate a teen’s emotional maturity.
We developed, and use with our clients, a series of personality and EQ assessments and activities which help us to determine where a teenager is compared to others their age, and even pin-point the specific areas that a teenager is strong or weak in.
I hope that one day EQ skills are taught in every public school (for free) and that EQ evaluations are given to every parent.
For now, EQ teaching and evaluation is a private service - and we are one of the only firms in the world to offer it to teens.
If you would like us to teach your teenager EQ skills, or, if you would like us to evaluate your teen’s EQ maturity, please contact us and ask for an evaluation. We would be happy to support your family.
We have determined that emotionally mature teenagers practice these life-skills:
