Children Need Their Parents at Every Age of Development
Parent Coaching in Winter Park:
Some parents feel that the best way to help their child become a confident, well-adjusted adult is to provide for basic needs—such as food, clothes, and transportation—but to back off when it comes to the child’s social and emotional needs figuring that the child will do better if they learn to manage these challenges on their own.
Emotion Coaching research shows that the opposite is true.
The way to create self-confident, emotionally-adjusted kids is to connect emotionally, and often. Children at every age need love, affection, comfort, and guidance.
They need safety and protection, which, in the early years, may mean that we need to block them from blindly running across the street. But, later, they may need techniques for handling a bully at school, or knowing how to say no to friends, or what to do when they feel anxiety. They need understanding when they make mistakes and sympathy when they come home hurting.

How We've Been Misled by Emotional Intelligence
Knowing how to respond to others’ emotional states is the essence of Emotional Intelligence. But how do we actually learn it? Executive leadership coach Kris Girrell suggests that sometimes the path to becoming intimately aware of our emotions may be a little bumpier than we bargained for, but in the end, results in stronger relationships.
