TUNING IN TO KIDS: EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT PARENTING

This is a six-week group program for parents and carers of children aged 4 – 12. It can help you to teach your child the skills of emotional intelligence.

 

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence is about using your emotions to guide you through the world.  It is about being able to use your knowledge of emotions to make decisions, to calm yourself down, to manage anger and conflict, to help you in your relationships with people, to understand what is happening in social situations, and to assist you in any aspects of life that involves you and another person.

Why is Emotional Intelligence important?

Children with greater emotional intelligence have been shown to:

  • have greater success with making friendships and be more able to manage conflict with peers
  • have better concentration, which means they are more likely to be successful academically
  • be more able to self soothe when upset or angry
  • tend to have fewer childhood illnesses
  • have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults; and
  • have greater career success and emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!

When parents focus on helping their child learn about emotions, the child is more likely to have higher emotional intelligence. In this parenting program we will teach parents what to do to help these skills develop.

TUNING IN TO TEENS: EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT PARENTING

Tuning in to Teens is a six-week Emotionally Intelligent  parenting program for parents and carers of adolescents aged 10 – 18.

 

Would you like to learn how to:

  • be better at talking with your teen?
  • be better at understanding your teen?
  • help your teen learn to manage their emotions?
  • help to prevent behaviour problems in your teen?
  • teach your teen to deal with conflict?

Tuning in to Teens shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence. Adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:

  • are more aware, assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure
  • have greater success with making friends and are more able to manage conflict with peers
  • are more able to cope when upset or angry
  • have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
  • have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults
  • have greater career success and emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!
