"As teachers we all know that social and emotional intelligence is second to none in terms of health and happiness; as they say EQ > IQ in life!" - Dr. John Irvine
This is a challenging time for helping children develop their social and emotional intelligence. We live in an age when there has never been a greater awareness of how emotional intelligence supports every aspect of a child’s development. At the same time, we are living in a rapidly changing world which is placing pressures upon children to react to new situations. How they deal with these experiences often depends on how they handle their emotions.
