what we do & how you can benefit

The most important lesson and skills any person can learn – and which the world most needs – is how to get along with others superbly & manage our lives most rewardingly. Almost all human pain and conflict comes from lack of those skills. These skills are most easily and long-lastingly taught to children. Often called Social Emotional Learning (SEL) by educators, you’ll see proof of this in the many school videos here. To bring these skills into parenting homes, see the publicly available videos here.

.EQuip Our Kids! works to empower children with these vital EQ and personal life skills so they thrive in the classroom and beyond. A national nonprofit, we don’t ourselves create such training. Instead, we raise parent and public awareness & support for this learning in all U.S. schools and homes, and we help build grassroots organizations with these goals. Years of evidence indicates it’s the surest path to tremendous positive upsides for children, families, schools, the workforce, your community – and for the many super serious pains of the world, individually and collectively. 

Our work affects millions of kids. Over five years we helped raise parent awareness of EQ skills learning from 5% to 75%. 

wise parent: school is more than grades.

America’s youth need a BIG boost.

A SMART, enjoyable, proven one!

To grow a generation like none ever!


 It’s a proven fact: Teaching important personal life skills in schools escalates children into much better emotional states and wonderfully greater success in school, relationships, life and careers. 


* Among the upsides, the U.S. Surgeon General says the many American kids experiencing mental health stresses require help via heart-based emotional intelligence (EQ) and life management skills. These skills greatly benefit all student’s hearts & good heads, mitigating destructive mindsets & behaviors while helping restore Covid-impacted learning abilities.  


 so they’re happy, learning and loving. 

As an EQ Life Skills generation becomes adults, it has awesome potential to dramatically reduce high rates of societal pains, violence and conflict and create a more peaceful, prosperous world. Change mindsets and behaviors simply by providing different thinking along with the skills essential to change behaviors, and the world will change for the better. Think about it.
