Emotional Intelligence skills -

and in learning them yourself.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ like IQ) come from teachable human skills that help us manage our inner selves and relationships with others in a mentally and emotionally healthy, productive, caring way - instead of from trauma, hostility, exploitation, prejudice or harm to others or self.

When EQ is taught in schools, it's called Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). Teach it universally, and SEL will provide a huge, happy-making upgrade for our children's lives and success, for their schools and homes - AND healing for the emotional and human relations pain so familiar to all of us.

Yet, SEL is what teaches kids essential lifelong skills like how to manage themselves, their feelings, their relationships and their paths to happy, rewarding and kind lives.

During this stressful time of remote learning, severe child and parent duress, racial reckoning, political tension and financial uncertainty, children even more need a curriculum focused on emotional intelligence.
