In Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, psychology professor John Gottman explores the emotional relationship between parents and children. It's not enough to simply reject an authoritarian model of parenting, Gottman says. A parent needs to be concerned with the quality of emotional interactions. Gottman, author of Why Marriages Succeed or Fail, and coauthor Joan Declaire focus first on the parent (a "know thyself" approach), and provide a series of exercises to assess parenting styles and emotional self-awareness. The authors identify a five-step "emotion coaching" process to help teach children how to recognize and address their feelings, which includes becoming aware of the child's emotions; recognizing that dealing with these emotions is an opportunity for intimacy; listening empathetically; helping the child label emotions; setting limits; and problem-solving. Chapters on divorce, fathering, and age-based differences in emotional development help make Gottman's teachings detailed and useful. --Ericka Lutz

ANYWAY, perhaps it's the job of helpers to make the wise words of this treasure more easy to understand and put into practice! Ah,and there's another book idea -- what does Emotion Coaching look like through every stage of development, more examples of the exchanges would be helpful! Just wishful thinking -- and gratitude!
I read this book first, and then I found their website that offers an emotion coaching program for about $90. The program was so good, that I think it should be required viewing for all parents!!! I don't know if I can post a link to it here, but you can do a web search for "The Gottman Institute Emotion Coaching." The combined book and program give parents the tools to know what to say to their kids - ones that actually work!
My kids are 3 & 5, and I wish I had had this book four years ago!!!!
