Family Culture with Beth Hoff

Feb 10, 2021

Emotional intelligence is a powerful tool not just for relationships, but in overall life success as well. Although IQ (intelligence quotient) has been a huge focus for predicting success for decades, research actually suggests that emotional intelligence is a significantly better predictor of longterm success than IQ. 

But how do you teach emotional intelligence to your kids, especially if you feel like you need a few lessons yourself?

On this episode I'm diving into what emotional intelligence is, why it’s so valuable, how to teach your kids emotional intelligence, and a few really important things to consider as you work to create a healthy emotional culture in your family and home.

Key Takeaways from Episode 33:
+ Emotional intelligence is a learned trait
+ Emotion coaching is key
+ Name & validate your child’s emotions
+ Use stories to practice recognition
+ Name & explain your own emotions
