Research has found that parenting styles can influence a child’s emotional intelligence. Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand and control your emotions, as well as being able to communicate to others about how you feel. Children with good emotional intelligence often have better emotional, social and physical functioning, as well as fewer behavioural difficulties. Our guest speaker, Faye Evans is a registered Psychologist and will discuss some practical strategies based on neuroscience of parenting, attachment and emotion coaching to assist parents to tune into their children and assist them to learn to understand and regulate their emotions. Building strong connections with the family while developing autonomy and independence in your children.
