Our tweens and teens juggle some big feelings and emotions, don’t you agree? How about reframing these emotional times as opportunities to connect? Let’s begin with patience and careful listening, add in some paraphrasing, compassion, and empathy. What happens? Kids feel heard and become better listeners. They feel understood. And by practicing empathy in tumultuous moments we help our kids grow into emotionally intelligent adults.  

On October 27, coach and Dare to Lead facilitator Suzy Benson was featured at the Parent Education Fall Speaker Event – Smart + Heart: A Workshop on Emotional Intelligence – sponsored by the SAAS Family Association. Here’s a recap sharing some of Suzy’s key points and helpful takeaways on ways parents can nurture emotional intelligence.
