Emotion Ocean - What's the big deal about EQ?
with Naomi Holdt
n today’s episode I spoke with Naomi Holdt, who is an educational psychologist, speaker, author and a mom. We spoke about many different things regarding EQ, including what it really means to develop emotional intelligence in our kids, the importance of EQ over IQ and how to truly value our children’s emotions.
Emotions are so important in our lives! They inform so much about who we are and how we interact with others. And so it’s vitally important that we, as parents, are actively engaging our children with care and empathy, teaching them how to process their emotions, allowing them to really feel their emotions and equipping them with the tools to handle them.
If we teach our youngsters to identify and understand their big feelings, especially while they are young, we are undoubtedly equipping them to be intelligent, thoughtful and empathetic adults. And the world needs more adults like that!
Naomi and I chat through all things EQ, big feelings and how to help our kids through it all.
