Why Teens Need EQ Tools

When our children are preschool age, we teach them to use simple feeling words like...

Glad. Sad. Mad.

These basic words help them express what they are feeling to others.

As our children become elementary age, we parents NEED TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN that there are many, many human emotions they feel.... 

...And we need to teach them to communicate these words to us and others. 

This is a part of their EQ training...and them growing to become mature adults.

EQ tools are the most important skills a younger person can learn.

EQ Skills : Their School Doesn't Teach Them!

EQ = Emotional Quotient = Emotional Intelligence

...is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior, and manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one's goal(s).

Schools do not teach EQ skills. 

 It's not in the curriculum.

 It's not their job.

Teaching EQ skills is a PARENT'S JOB.

The family home is the school where EQ skills are learned.

If your child or teenager is struggling with EQ skills, it means they need more attention/help from you, their parent.

If you don't help them learn EQ skills, where will they learn them?
