If you could help your high school student achieve the following would you?
Higher academic achievement with greater focus and attention.
Collaborative relationships with parents, siblings, teachers, and friends.
Less stress and the ability to manage daily life challenges.
Better decisions, less engagement in risky behavior, and a willingness to not give in to peer pressure.
Greater empathy and compassion towards others, and the desire to make a difference.
With the backing of 20 plus years of research, emotional intelligence (EQ) has proven to be the missing link to helping students achieve all of these things, and more.
And, not only will greater EQ help your children today, it will also help them later in life. A more recent study followed-up with adults who had had EQ as students. This study found that the highly emotional intelligent adults are doing better financially and have better health than those who tested below average in EQ as children.
High emotional intelligence in a child proves to be a a remarkable predictor to success in life as an adult.
Over the last several months, I've shared this information with other parents. Consistently, each person thought of EQ as something only business leaders needed. The truth is, EQ is for business leaders AND parents, spouses, children, families, students, teachers, neighbors, and any other title you can give to the human race. Emotional intelligence is for everyone!
And, these same parents thought that their children would receive EQ training when they landed their first job.
Your child can't afford to wait until then.
In a season where our children struggle with pressure to perform, to fit in with peers, and to prepare for the transition from high school to college, it is becoming more and more clear that EI is something that will:
Help your child manage the complexities of life.
Help your child stand out compared to their peers.
