Everyone feels emotions. Emotions are a big part of making us human, but they are not always easy to understand. Our foundational and childhood years play a vital role in shaping how we operate in the world later-on in life. It is common for teens and adults to fall in to patterns of negative behaviour or addiction in order to suppress difficult emotions.
It is for this reason, and to help them thrive in life, that it is vital to teach our children from a very young age to be able to identify, feel, and process good and bad emotions. Once you have these life skills, you will most definitely be better equipped to deal with any challenges that come your way. Children who have developed emotional intelligence are seen to have more focus with tasks, concentrate better in school, find it easier to make friends, have a high self-esteem, and are able to prevent or recover easier from being bullied.
