Educators: Want to Connect Parents to Your School’s Focus on Social and Emotional Learning?
Families can learn about their child’s social and emotional development and ways they can promote social and emotional skills alongside educators. The book contains a discussion guide to support readers in their dialogue.
“Confident Parents, Confident Kids: Raising Emotional Intelligence in Ourselves and Our Kids—from Toddlers to Teenagers” is a fully illustrated guide for parents to learn about their children’s development at each age and stage and how they can develop critical social and emotional life skills to enhance their competence and contribute to their confidence. In addition, parents will learn how to deal with their own big feelings that parenting brings out while transforming their toughest moments into learning opportunities.
How do we raise a confident kid? And how can we be confident that our parenting is preparing our child for success?
Our confidence develops from understanding and having a mastery over our emotions—and helping our children do the same. Like learning to play a musical instrument, we can fine-tune our ability to skillfully react to those crazy, wonderful, big feelings that naturally arise from our child’s constant growth and changes, moving from chaos to harmony. We want our children to trust that they can conquer any challenge with hard work and persistence; that they can love boundlessly; that they will find their unique sense of purpose; and they will act wisely in a complex world. This book shows you how.
o The myths we’ve been told about emotions, how they shape our choices, and how we can reshape our parenting decisions in better alignment with our deepest values.
o How to identify the temperaments your child was born with so you can support those tendencies rather than fight them.
o How to align your biggest hopes and dreams for your kids with specific skills that can be practiced, along with new research to support those powerful connections.
o About each age and stage your child goes through and the range of learning opportunities available.o How to identify and manage those big emotions (that only the parenting process can bring out in us!) and how to model emotional intelligence for your children.
o How to alter challenging patterns we fall into and respond to even our toughest moments in ways that align with our highest values.
