Emotionally Intelligent Parenting Program

Parents/caregivers are invited to join a parenting program that could make a positive difference in your child’s development. EQ Parenting* is a six week group program for parents of children aged 6 – 11. It can help you to teach your child the skills of emotional intelligence. 

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence is about using your emotions to guide you through the world. It is about being able to use your knowledge of emotions to make decisions, to calm yourself, to manage anger and conflict, to help you in your relationships, to understand what is happening in social situations, and to assist you in any aspects of life that involves you and another person.  Children with greater emotional intelligence have been shown to:

  • Have greater success with making friends and be more able to manage conflict with peers;
  • Have better concentration, which means they are more likely to be successful academically;
  • Be more able to self-soothe when upset or angry;
  • Tend to have fewer childhood illnesses;
  • Have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults; 
  • Have greater career success…emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!

In this parenting program we will teach parents what to do to help these skills develop.

Date: September 22 to November 10

Time: 9:00 - 11:00 am

Location: CHAC, 590 W. El Camino Real, Mountain View

Cost: $200

Registration will open soon. Limited to 10 registrants.
