Definition of EQ
Emotional intelligence has been defined, by Peter Salovey and John Mayer, as "the ability to monitor one's own and other people's emotions".
Raising my kids I have witnessed, that most emotions are learned, yet we normaly do not learn how to recognize and work with these emotions. We use them to manipulate our environemnt. we rather think they are part of our character. But since we had to learn them in the first place, couldn't we also learn how to handle them in a more compassionate way for ourself’s and our environment. My quest became, how to raise children with a high EQ, in the process of this I had to work on my own EQ, which is not allways easy but a heck of an adventure!
