Are you sometimes overwhelmed by your child’s feelings?  

Does your child have trouble verbalizing his/her emotions?  

Do his/her displays of emotion seem like misbehavior to you?  

A better relationship with your child starts with emotional intelligence.  

Emotional intelligence increases children’s self-worth and cooperation, it improves communication and strengthens the parent-child connection. Family conflict decreases with strong emotional intelligence and it impacts all of your child’s future relationships.  

Participants will be able to: 

  • Respond to children’s emotions effectively 
  • Help children manage their emotions 
  • Teach children problem solving skills 
  • Express emotions in ways that help children respond positively 
  • Apply communication skills that increase peace at home
