Intelligence That Comes from the Heart

Every parent knows the importance of equipping children with the intellectual skills they need to succeed in school and life. But children also need to master their emotions. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is a guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally intelligent children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will equip parents with a five-step "emotion coaching" process that teaches how to:

x Be aware of a child's emotions
x Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching
x Listen empathetically and validate a child's feelings
x Label emotions in words a child can understand
x Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation

Written for parents of children of all ages, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will enrich the bonds between parent and child and contribute immeasurably to the development of a generation of emotionally healthy adults.

Synopsis:

Gottman draws on his studies of more than 120 families to zero in on the parenting techniques that ensure a child's emotional health. He then translates his methods into an easy, five-step "emotional coaching" program designed to help parents enrich the bond between themselves and their children.

I have given Gottman's book, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, as a gift to many a new parent. Chapter 2's assessment of 'your parenting style' gave me an insightful look into my own parenting strengths and weaknesses as a well-intentioned, but often misguided, loving parent. Generally speaking, all parents want to be supportive mothers and fathers, but it doesn't come naturally. The art of emotional coaching that Gottman recommends for our children requires emotional awareness and a specific set of listening and problem-solving skills that takes more than just a parent's conscious decision to take a warm and positive approach to dealing with their child. This book helped me become a better parent and since I've read it I have wanted to share it with all the parents I know.

I am dealing with parents, my son and daughter-in-law who laugh, make fun and treat my 3 and 2 year old grand children with little respect. If they cry and want attention it is with negitive response sometimes, laughing at the cries, or moans. The 3 year old still hates to sleep in his room, and mind you this is the 3rd house lived in so it is not the same room, he wants to sleep on the couch, or in their bed, the 2 year old has followed as he is mommie's baby, the first bonded with me because he was wanted mind you but not really what they had planned, since new to marriage, a crying baby too much trouble, I helped out and he got attached as did I to having him around, but over the years it has become all to sad to know the second is moms baby, the first is there but kind of wants to be here at my house and clings to mom sometimes when sad, your book is great in it really takes the parents to be there all the way around, it is so important. The brow beating and laughter should not be to make the child feel bad NEVER. my son and Daughter - in-law do this often, it is causing great pain. My son really hurts my feeling when he brow beats the kids because he was not raised this way but he really has never had a father figure, I tried to be both and spoiled him I guess, but the pain of knowing I never treated him as he treats his kids is painful, and to say the least not funny. Both kids are such wonderful children and they should feel blessed. I know they love them but the belittlement is too much.
