Publisher's Summary

From Dr. John Gottman comes Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, a modern guide to raising healthy and emotionally intelligent children, with a foreword by Daniel Goleman, New York Times best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence.  

Based on 20 years of research at the University of Washington studying parent-child interactions, award-winning research psychologist John Gottman and his team have developed Emotion Coaching - a technique parents can use to teach their children self-awareness and self-control and to foster good emotional development. This proven technique has demonstrated a positive effect on children's physical health, academic achievement, and emotional well-being.    

Among the issues this program explores:  

  • Emotion Coaching: the key to raising emotionally intelligent kids 
  • How to assess your parenting style 
  • Key steps and strategies for Emotion Coaching 
  • The effects of marriage and divorce on your child's emotional health 
  • The crucial role of fathers in families  

Dr. Gottman's research has shown that children who learn to master their emotions have more self-confidence, do better in school, and have a better chance of living happy, emotionally healthy lives. Filled with practical and common-sense advice on how to become an Emotion Coaching parent, this is a how-to guide for parents interested in helping their children grow into "emotionally intelligent" people.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
