8 Steps to nurture Emotional Intelligence in your child. Step 4.

Hello everybody! So what’s the next step to make your child even more emotionally intelligent?
Here it is – Step 4: You help your child sort through his/her feelings.
Children of all ages may struggle to put words to the emotions they’re experiencing. You can help them by suggesting, but never telling them, what they might be feeling. For example, you could say: “If my best friend wouldn’t talk to me, I would probably feel abandoned or unwanted…does that sound right?” You could share your feelings if you experienced a similar situation, thereby encouraging your child to open up and trust you with her feelings.”
