8 Secrets to Better Health, Academics, Relationships & Happiness for Kids!

Helping your kids grow in their emotional intelligence (EQ) will lead to better relationships, health, academic achievement and overall happiness. The best thing about EQ is that unlike IQ, it can grow and develop over time. So how do we create emotionally intelligent homes? According to the Six Seconds EQ Model, focus on developing these eight skills:

  • increase emotional literacy 
  • recognize patterns of behavior 
  • navigate emotions 
  • exercise optimism 
  • engage intrinsic motivation 
  • apply consequential thinking 
  • increase empathy 
  • pursue noble goals
