Did you know that a child’s ability to handle frustration, control emotions, and get along with others is a better predictor of success than IQ? Research shows that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) increases healthy relationships, academic achievement, and overall success in life. Participants will learn about the important skills their child needs to be successful and happy. This includes the importance of EQ and how to help their child communicate and cooperate more effectively, develop and nurture meaningful friendships, enhance their empathy, and manage anger and frustration effectively.
