Emotionally Intelligent Children Don't Feel The Need To Bully, Why?

Posted by on in Social Emotional Learning

Studies show that children and people with healthy emotional brains and feelings of emotional well-being exhibit behaviors that resonate with these attributes:

Empathy
Positive thinking and Choices(Self-Confidence)
Love to help with service
Ability to Calm and Soothe Oneself
Accountability/Forgiveness
Persisting in the Face of Frustration with Gratefulness
To Hope and To Dream A Future

Do you know children and people with these qualities?
Have you asked them how they were raised?
Have you asked parents with children who exhibit these qualities, how they are raising their children?

For years, people who knew and loved my son with disabilities never asked me these questions. Yet, they are were surprised at his social appropriateness, his kindness, his willingness to help, his courage, his incredible persistence when taking on challenges, his positive thinking (liked it, loved it!), his unconditional acceptance of others, his ability to forgive, and his astounding capacity to set goals and to dream the impossible!

Yes, he was bullied but he taught all who knew him how to respect him and how to become his buddy. If my son could become emotionally intelligent with his challenges, so can we all!!!!

Yes, we were each others teacher. Ask these questions and then listen to the responses.
