About this Event

Synopsis

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. Researchers have found that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and ability to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness in all walks of life.

And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally resilient children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships.

The 1.5-hour talk is aimed to help parents to:

• Learn the best ways to respond when your child is sad, angry, or scared

• Discover how to use emotions as opportunities for connection and teaching

• Learn how to set clear, consistent limits while helping your child problem-solve
