Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is John Gottman's groundbreaking guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. Intelligence That Comes from the Heart Every parent knows the importance of equipping children with the intellectual skills they need to succeed in school and life. But children also need to master their emotions. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is a guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally intelligent children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will equip parents with a five-step "emotion coaching" process that teaches how to: -Be aware of a child's emotions -Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching -Listen empathetically and validate a child's feelings -Label emotions in words a child can understand -Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation Written for parents of children of all ages, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will enrich the bonds between parent and child and contribute immeasurably to the development of a generation of emotionally healthy adults.

This is a very important book!
It has a very clear step by step guideline on how to develop emotionally intelligence.
its fun to read and has lots of everyday examples of how to carry this through.

As a working psychologist, emotionally intelligence is one of the main focuses of working with my clients because its poorly valued in many cultures, yet it is what makes a difference in every relationship whether it be business, work, play or the more intimate relationships you find in couples and family living.

And its starts with how we parent our children!
One of the most important jobs on the planet yet the most undervalued and poorly paid.

You can find a lot of books about parenting, but many of them are just pop psychology, the solitary opinion of the author.
Gottman is definitely not one of them. He is known as one of the leading psychologists in the area of family and marriage psychology. This book presents the essence of his research findings about raising emotionally intelligent children.
His advise is surprisingly easy and is based on a 5 step model:
1. Be aware of your childs emotion
2. See your childs emotions as an opportunity to be close together
3. Actively listen to your child and validate the feelings
4. Help your child to verbalize his feelings
5. Help your child solve problems, while setting clear limits

Gottman clearly explains how you can implement this 5-step-model in daily life and what to do when problems arise. His real life examples make reading really fun.
All in all, an excellent parenting book! As a supplement, I can also recommend the book by M. Seligman: "The optimistic child"
Michelle Woolstencroft on
I enjoyed reading this book and gained some great insights personally as a parent and also professionally (counsellor of teens). It is very easy to read and understand. I liked the reference to studies completed as this helped validate what Gottman was arguing.
