2020 Episode 6: Raising Emotionally Intelligent Children

Posted in Business Wellness In Hamilton

Business Wellness in Hamilton, Season 4, Episode 6


Host Linda Marshall invites her guests to discuss how to raise emotionally intelligent children on Episode 6, Season 4 of Business Wellness in Hamilton

How do we prepare our children to thrive in today's world? Our goal is to support and raise our children to be successful and develop to their highest potential. In fact, many see that as their highest priority and sole responsibility once they have children. Providing them with the necessary skills to work towards what they want in life is vital. When it comes to educating our children about connecting with their emotions and developing social skills, emotional intelligence is invaluable. Fostering children's intellectual skills is very important, but equally important is their emotional development. Learning to identify their emotional responses and regulate and manage them will lead them toward positive relationships.

Join my special guests Lynn Howarth, Owner, Jack and Molly Wear, and Harmony McKenzie, Owners, Senior Producer, Content, Cable 14, and me to discuss how to raise emotionally intelligent children for the premiere show on Friday, October 23, at 8:00 pm.
