When you have children, your whole world changes to say the very least.
Am I right, or am I right?
I just knew that there had to be a way to STOP the chaotic parenting regime that was happening in my household. I just KNEW that yelling and shouting were not serving anyone. But what was the solution?
It took me many years, but I am here today to tell you, there is a way. It is through a somewhat revolutionary way called Emotional Intelligence. It’s not a brand new way of thinking, in fact, Dr. John Gottman wrote a book about it decades ago. But it has been forgotten.
Emotional Intelligence is the ability and awareness of your emotions and others around you. It doesn’t make you SUPER emotional, it makes you aware.
Hold that word because that will be 95% of your journey.
When we teach our children to listen to the emotion, and then we teach them to label it (call it something) and then we teach them what they could do with it and then we teach them that emotions come and go – then these children will grow into adults that are capable and able to harness huge milestones. Rejection. Hurt. Anger. Exhilaration.
Because guess what? WE ARE NOT HERE TO SHOW CHILDREN THE WORLD IS HUGE AND TOUGH. We are here to teach our children how to handle a situation that appears huge and tough.
See the distinction?
Because all too often, I meet adults that are just like wounded children.
So welcome to my website. I have poured my heart into it so that it can be of benefit to you. I trust that we will cross paths soon.
