High school years, the important time for Emotional Intelligence development. As we know, EI contributes 80% of success (while IQ is only 20%). In kindergarten & primary years, children develop the first 2 stages of EI, knowing own emotions and managing them. Next stage, secondary years to high school they develop knowing others' emotions & managing them. The skill is not inborn but need to be learned & practiced.
That's why I support the girls effort to join OSIS at school. Starting with leadership night (one night) at school, so they're able to know each members better, from grade 7-11. Followed by activities at schools. School organization is one of the best place from teenagers in developing EI. Studying is important. But how can we use all the theories that we learn to solve real problems is more important. Let our children days at school not only school of subjects and grades, but more into school of life #teenagers#studentbody#girls#leadership#emotionalintelligence#alyssa#aimee#parenting#momofteenagers#psychology
