Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is much more important than the cognitive intelligence (IQ) to have a successful and fulfilling life.
However, our education systems and culture emphasizes on developing cognitive intelligence (IQ). There is nothing that addresses the emotional well being and growth of a child in the curriculum of even the most prestigious schools.
The responsibility of developing emotional intelligence rests solely on the shoulders of the parents. In the absence of clear understanding of conscious EQ development, all we can offer our children is automated emotional reactions which are being passed down from generation to generation.
There is a better way of parenting. Raise your child with emotional consciousness. Teach them how to respond to a situation effectively. Give them techniques to get out of negative emotional patterns. Instill these habits early, and you will gift them the most fulfilling life experience.
