8 Steps to nurture Emotional Intelligence in your child. Step 3.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope You are enjoying your time! Let’s continue our discussion on raising an emotionally intelligent child. We already know that we need to teach kids to pause and encourage conversation. And now it’s time for the next big step!!!
Step 3: You accept and encourage your child’s emotions.
“Feelings are neither right nor wrong, they just are, and everyone is entitled to their feelings, including your child,” says Harvey Deutschendorf, author of The Other Kind of Smart, Simple Ways to Boost Your Emotional Intelligence for Greater Personal Effectiveness and Success. “Always encourage them to express their feelings through questioning. For example, if they look sad or upset and aren’t speaking, you could ask, ‘You look down today; did something happen?’ Never pass judgment or doubt their feelings. For them, their feelings are real and authentic.”
