A child's emotional intelligence has been shown to be one of the strongest factors in whether or not that child will be successful later in life. A child with high emotional intelligence (EQ) has good self-control, resilience, and empathy--all factors that help build a foundation for a more grounded, satisfying, and successful life.
With The Everything Parent's Guide to Emotional Intelligence in Children, you will learn how to help your child:
- Improve academic achievement and behavior.
- Achieve mindfulness.
- Understand emotions.
- Empathize with others.
- Improve self-confidence.
- Build inner resilience.
This hands-on guide shows you exactly how to promote core EQ skills in your child and provides you with all you need to help your children achieve their greatest potential.
"The Student EQ Edge is more relevant today than any other time in the history of our world. Our opportunity to succeed in the 21st century will depend a great deal on our emotional intelligence in our transformation to lifelong learning and our leadership ability. This book is the competitive edge." —Stedman Graham, best-selling author, speaker, entrepreneur
"We have been long aware that academic ability does not necessarily predict college success. This book provides a comprehensive look at emotional intelligence and the role it plays in student persistence. It takes these noncognitive aspects that we know really matter and puts them into a practical, user-friendly guide. This book is long overdue in higher education." —Catherine Andersen, master trainer in emotional intelligence; professor and special assistant to the provost for student success, Gallaudet University
"As important as book learning is, we know that success in life is also dependent upon emotional intelligence. The authors of The Student EQ Edge define emotional intelligence and provide a road map for mastering emotional intelligence skills. I would highly recommend The Student EQ Edge to any high school or college student interested in knowing what it takes to be truly successful both inside and outside the classroom." —Brad Beacham, executive director, Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc.
"The Student EQ Edge is substantive, readable, and sure to appeal to students both in classes as well as those who are lucky to pick it up for personal development reading. The book is appealing because the research is understandable; numerous examples are integrated throughout, and readers are encouraged to apply what they are reading." —Dennis Roberts, assistant vice president for faculty and student services for the Qatar Foundation

It offers faculty and facilitators a hands-on resource for helping students reach their potential by tapping into the power of emotional intelligence. The Facilitation Guide includes exercises and activities which are designed to help students develop confidence, independence, the ability to set and meet goals, impulse control, social responsibility, problem-solving skills, stress tolerance, and much more—all of which help improve academic success.

"The single best resource on emotional intelligence in student affairs, The Student EQ Edge: Student Workbook and Facilitation and Activity Guide are well organized, creative, and offer everything an emotional intelligence facilitator would need in a fast-paced student affairs environment. The examples are soundly constructed and resonate with students. These materials are my go-to resources."—Candice Johnston, associate director of student leadership and organizations, Wake Forest University"If I were building a new course to improve student success, it would be founded on emotional intelligence. All the instruction in the world on 'study skills' cannot touch the advantages that come to students who are able to manage their emotional intelligence. And the best news of all is that these skills can be taught. EQ skills make the difference." —Randy L. Swing, executive director, Association for Institutional Research
"This Facilitation and Activity Guide is particularly useful, offering options from which the facilitator can draw in preparing assignments or learning community meetings. The focus on learners' needs, and particularly an authentic exploration of self and purpose, is practical yet has the potential to draw students to a deeper understanding of self that will draw them to high performance and contribution to others."—Dennis Roberts, assistant vice president for faculty and student services for the Qatar Foundation
