How to Increase Emotional Intelligence in Children

Smart Kids -Brain intelligence or IQ may be able to make us get a job, but EQ - the one that will make us get a promotion at work! EQ (Emotional Quotient) or Emotional Intelligence is awareness and the ability to manage one of the emotions in a healthy and productive properly. That means it takes IQ and EQ are balanced in this life.

If we think IQ is everything and more important, then consider the statement of Daniel Goleman, in his bestselling book Emotional Intelligence, EQ who believe that learning can be useful in all things. For example, in a company, EQ can help in terms of acceptance of their employees. For the parents, by studying and honing EQ, it can help their children to face the challenges of life.

A research says, a child who has a high EQ child will grow into a popular and successful in school. Therefore parents should be aware of, not only the technical skills and scientific knowledge, but the ability of self-control and live in the community is also very important for the growth and development of children.

Broadly speaking, emotional intelligence is divided into two terms, namely to recognize and manage emotions. There are four characteristics of children who have high EQ, that he has a sense of responsibility (responsibility), has the motivation to move forward (self motivation), is able to control the balance of self or emotions (self-regulation), and is able to cooperate with others (people skills).

Here are the ways that can be used to teach EQ in your child:

Respect your child's feelings, without having to show them that you actually own find it difficult to deal with your child's emotions. Learn to handle it.

Teach your child to express feelings of what they was feeling at that moment.

Try to share your feelings with the child, but do not involve the children in the problem you are facing. Simply show that you too have the same feeling with them.

Being a role model in dealing with all kinds of problems that are being faced. If you yell when you're angry, then the child will follow the "trail" you.

Try to be sensitive to knowing and to feel what your child is feeling.

Listen to them and give feedback. Like saying, "You look sad. Did anyone want to talk about?"

Give the child time to cope with their feelings. Do not be too pushy to tell what she was feeling. Let everything go slowly.

Do not let your emotions provoked when faced with an angry child.

Let the kids get angry and spill all of his emotions, but do not let the child misbehaves. For example stone or beat you.

Because you are a good role model for the child to express something, then you should be able to control emotions well in front of the child. If you feel not hold the emotions again, you can write it in the diary or talk to your husband, family or next of kin.
