Real tools for parenting with patience, and helping your child develop emotional intelligence--an essential character trait for succeeding in our highly social world

If you're like many parents, you may wonder what's going on inside your child's mind when they throw a temper tantrum, refuse to cooperate or become overly excited. Written by two experts in child development and education, The Emotionally Intelligent Child offers a groundbreaking approach for understanding your child's behavior in the context of their development, as well as tips for parenting with compassion, and strategies for helping your child build emotional intelligence--a key element of success in today's world.

In the book, you'll learn all about the stages of development your child goes through as they gain social awareness and emotional balance--and how you can nurture this development using the author's innovative MIND framework.

By shifting your thinking from an adult viewpoint to a child's, you'll discover how you can scaffold and support your child's social and emotional learning; and ensure the development of prosocial behavior, impulse control, and perspective taking. This shift in viewpoint will also help you gain more patience as a parent, respond with less reactivity, and--most importantly--cultivate more joy together as a family.
