PREPESSENTIALS® – Cultivate your child’s emotional intelligence...

Every child needs to gain emotional intelligence - the ability to know what he/she is feeling and to use the feeling as information for guiding behaviour. Every step a child takes in building these essential skills will serve him/her in every setting for the rest of his/her life. The quality of relationships and the success a child achieves in the real world are due in part, by these fundamental skills.

While many parents focus on their child's intellectual development, research indicates that IQ (Intelligence Quotient, a standard measure that assigns a number relative to a normal curve describing intelligence) will determine approximately 4-10% of your child's career success.

That leaves the question open - what does determine my child's career success? A big part of the answer is emotional intelligence. Another significant factor in your child's life success is interpersonal success - how well a child gets along with others. In fact, social success is driven by emotional intelligence. This means that your child's ability to understand his/her own emotions, read other people's emotions, and express him/herself skillfully will in large part drive how successful she is in being liked and supported by others.

This program is designed for high achieving students who will benefit by enhancing their native abilities - improving communications, confidence and leadership abilities

Think of emotional intelligence as a long-term investment in your child's well-being!
