Raise Kids’ Emotional Intelligence

Teach Kids the Skills They Need for Emotional Intelligence and Self-Motivation (Raising Happiness Homestudy Theme Four)

Register now to get immediate access
4 weeks of online classes + BONUS week
$99
.

Learn the most important parenting skill in the history of the universe! Emotion coaching is the key to raising happy, healthy, resilient and well-adjusted children. This class will teach you:

  • What to do when children have emotional outbursts. Studies show that kids who are emotion coached experience fewer negative emotions and recover more quickly when they are upset.
    .
  • Why bribes, threats and rewards tend to backfire in the long-run. These external motivators undermine kids’ creativity and problem solving skills.
    .
  • How to tap into kids’ self-motivation, even for household chores. Self-motivated kids are more successful, perceive themselves to be more competent, and are less anxiety-prone.
    .
  • .

Happy people know how to cope with painful situations and emotions, and they know how to bounce back from them. While the value of love, dependability, and sensitivity is not to be underestimated, we need to teach kids to cope with negative emotions such as anger, anxiety and fear. This class will help you teach children the skills they need to become better at understanding their many and changing feelings.
