Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the best book I know to help children learn inner-life practices that can strengthen and sustain them. A moving mix of compassion, skillful means, and wisdom that can support young people growing up in a perilous but still promising world." --PARKER J. PALMER, author of The Courage to Teach --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

"Building Emotional Intelligence will be a welcome resource for parents and teachers seeking to teach children to slow down and listen to their inner voices."--Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund

"We all know kids struggle with stress. Now, Building Emotional Intelligence tells us how to help. Lantieri's simple but powerful exercises will help you inoculate your child with crucial coping skills to face a range of life challenges."--Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls

"This is the best book I know to help children learn inner-life practices that can strengthen and sustain them. A moving mix of compassion, skillful means, and wisdom that can support young people growing up in a perilous but still promising world."--Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach

"In this collaboration, Linda Lantieri and Dan Goleman form a dream team to help children discover and refine their deep inner capacities for well-being, calmness, relaxation, and emotional intelligence. Their program is a marvelous way for parents and their children to adventure together to build inner strengths and resiliency in dealing with the many stresses that children face in their daily lives." --Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D, Founding Director of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society

"This book is critically needed at this important time in education in the United States. Schools have been consumed with improving children's math and literacy skills, but too often have neglected the important impact of strong social and emotional learning skills."--Carol Comeau, Superintendent, Anchorage School District & Chair, Executive Committee, the Council of Great City Schools

"What a gift Linda Lantieri and Daniel Goleman give to children with Building Emotional Intelligence! The wonderful and appealing exercises and activities promise to cultivate in children a deep reserve of calm and inner resilience that will sustain them now and for the rest of their lives."--Nancy Carlsson-Paige, author of Taking Back Childhood

"A comprehensive guide with practical exercises for parents and their children to calm the body and focus the mind. Using principles derived from modern brain research, Linda Lantieri has created a novel curriculum that promises to be enormously helpful in building a foundation for a successful life by cultivating skills in managing disturbing emotions, increasing empathy and cooperation and instilling calmness. This book and accompanying CD will be of interest to all parents who wish their children to be happy and successful."--Richard J. Davidson, Director, Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior, University of Wisconsin-Madison

After attending a seminar and listening to Linda Lantieri speak, I had to purchase this book.

I've recommended it to several parents with children who need support coping with day to day stresses and it is great to have a book which I can confidently recommend.

I used this book to help me devise some interactive exercises in emotional intelligence for community college students in an Interpersonal Communication class.

As an elementary school counselor for over twenty years I have been looking for effective resources to share with students, parents and teachers that are practical and support the teaching of foundational self-regulation skills. Building Emotional Intelligence is the perfect developmental guide for both educators and parents in this respect, as it is very user-friendly and easy to implement with children of all ages.

The chapters are arranged in developmental stages and clearly describe simple activities appropriate for each school age. The actitivies are also provided in the accompanying CD, which is an ingenious way to support their intended application. My students have been loving the self-calming and focusing exercises on the CD, which have stimulated meaningful discussion. After doing one of the listening exercises on the CD this week, one kindergartener said,'When I feel lonely, I listen to my heart beat and then I know I'm not alone'. A guidance counselor couldn't ask for a more engaged outcome.

Our goal is to share this book with as many teachers and parents in our area as possible. One of our esteemed parents has said about it, 'This could change the world!'. Thank you, Linda, for this much-needed inner, as well as outer, peace tool.

This book is disapointing so far, but it may be only becasue I was expecting something else. I just finished reading Gott's book on emotinal intelligence, which was a great starting point for me to learn about the topic, and had some fantastic practical guidance. I thought this would give me more small ways I could incorporate emotional intelligence into our lives. Instead, the book is a guide for those who wish to have a guided quiet time with their youngsters on a regular basis. The idea of the quiet time is to learn to focus on our thoughts, our bodies, etc, and to learn to appreciate silence. Not a bad idea, just not what I was hoping for.

I have 3 kids with ADD who truly benefited from the cd - being able to slow their minds and relax before they go to bed is incredibly important. Being self-aware is part of feeling empowered and in control; something all kids need to have a clear grasp of, and a true understanding of. This book has helped me understand how I can help my children help themselves.

I am a Guidance Counselor at a private school in Miami Florida. Building Emotional Intelligence is a must have book that offers clear strategies to support children in becoming resilient and coping with a fast paced and sometimes stressful world. I have been using the activities and the CD by Daniel Goleman since I read it. My students have really enjoyed the CD and benefitted by the activities offered. I've recommended it to several parents with children who need support coping with day to day stresses and it is great to have a book which I can confidently recommend. It is concisely written and in a format that is easy to access by age group.
This is the kind of book I wished I had when I was raising my children who are now in their twenties. This is a must have for Guidance Counselors and parents.

I finally had a chance to read Building Emotional Intelligence and found it a refreshing dose of "this is what matters" with a special kid-focused twist. It's absolutely wonderful--so moving and totally practical in a way that will undoubtedly inspire to many parents, teachers, and students. Brava!

I bought the Kindle Edition of this book and as soon a I started to read it, I realized that a CD and a Guide that only comes with the printed edition are necessary to implement almost all the activities of the book. Consequently is not possible to use this book with the kindle Edition that cost nearly the same price of the printed one.

I was pleased to receive my copy of Building Emotional Intelligence yesterday. I've already read it cover to cover. As a parent, researcher, and educator who values social-emotional intelligence, contemplative practices, and the importance of body awareness this book has it all. I have learned new facts and been re-inspired! It is a satisfying book filled with up-to-date facts and exciting wellness practices that support emotional growth and development. This attractive guide complete with a DVD by Daniel Goleman has been fun to use with children as a parent, a friend, or teacher; I highly recommend it.

The whole point of this book is the CD, which you obviously don't get with the Kindle edition. I was hoping there would be a link or something else to make up for the lack of cd, but no. This book in Kindle format is useless. Unfortunately I missed the other review that said this, hopefully having a duplicate will save someone else's money.
