Children are open to having their ideas and behavior affected as they learn about and look at the world around them. Our experience running a Montessori school in Spring, Texas, has shown us the importance of appropriately fostering emotional intelligence in children from a young age.
Children who learn to relate their personal experiences to others connect in a way that fosters a much safer and nurturing environment.
Through enrichment programs, children can interact with others and learn about their emotions and feelings, eventually influencing how they feel about themselves. Their ability to explain and comprehend the feelings of others will enable them to react correctly and teach them the value of sharing.
They will improve their social, communication, and academic performance, all of which will help them get along with others. They have better emotional self-control than other people. They improve their ability to make decisions. Compared to their peers, they will be better decision-makers in the future.
As a parent, your kids can also benefit from you teaching them too while coping with challenging emotions. By embracing our child’s ideas and worries, we can give them a place to be open and vulnerable without fear of criticism and help them develop their emotional literacy.
At Cypresswood Montessori School, we offer child care programs in Texas with teachers that have received training in developing emotional intelligence in young people.
