The good news is that parents can teach children essential skills like empathy and gratitude.

“A child needs an environment where they can feel comfortable expressing their inner worlds,” said child psychologist. “Parents get the wonderful job of being curious and ready to allow them space for expression. This sets the stage.”We asked experts to share the habits of kids with high EQs. Here’s what they said:

1. They use their vocabulary to identify their emotions.Children with high emotional intelligence are adept at recognizing and verbally labeling their emotions beyond just “good” and “bad.”“For example, ‘I feel sad I cannot hang out with my friends,’ ‘I feel so excited I got a new bike,’ ‘I feel really mad at my teacher,’ or ‘I feel scared when dad travels overnight,’” Plattner said.

2. And they recognize those emotions in others, too.asiseeit via Getty ImagesEmotionally attuned kids are good at picking up on how others might be feeling. Emotionally intelligent children can accurately sense how other people are feeling, often by picking up on nonverbal cues.

“Before you can empathize, you have to be able to read someone else’s emotions,” Borba said. “For example: ‘She is smiling — I bet she’s happy,’ ‘Her body is slumped over — maybe she’s tired’ or ‘He’s crying: maybe I should help’ so you can tune into their feelings.”

3. They see things from other people’s points of view.Youngsters with higher levels of emotional intelligence are able to step into another person’s shoes, feel what they’re feeling and see the world from their perspective, Borba said.“Mastering perspective-taking is an important part of instilling a deep, caring connection with others,” she said. “It’s also a habit that children need for every part of life — from handling playground disputes today to mastering boardroom debates tomorrow.”

“When kids can grasp another’s perspective, they are more likely to be empathetic, handle conflicts peacefully, be less judgmental, value differences, speak up for those who are victimized and act in ways that are more helpful, comforting and supportive of others,” Borba added.

4. They’re quick to help others. Read more: HuffPost Parents »

Beirut reels from huge blast as death toll climbs to at least 135

Lebanese rescue teams pulled out bodies and hunted for missing in the wreckage of buildings on Wednesday as investigations blamed negligence for a massive warehouse explosion that sent a devastating blast wave across Beirut, killing at least 135.

Reflection and thinking before acting out is learned at home by adults. Intelligent, well behaved adults have smart kids. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Yesssss Foresight and empathy should be required courses in grade school. I personally think many, if not all employers should give an EQ test before hiring. Several years ago, I was offered a position and was told I had to take 2 tests😳. AFTER I was hired they told me that the EQ test was more crucial in their hiring process which made sense.

They SHOULD, but the kids have a better chance of teaching it to eachother at this point. I've seen some of these parents you speak of. Those are not just emotionally intelligent kids, but emotionally intelligent people The bad news is once someone reached adulthood, these virtues are harder to acquire and impossible if in position of power.

With all due respect there is a fine line between being empathetic and allowing people to get over on you. Too often parents 'teaching' their children empathy creates children who allow the latter. It's always easier to control people who rely on their emotions than people who apply logic. I feel like Penny has a bunch of this siglme01

HuffPo is the best I can’t stop 😂 Anyone else find it awkward to say “highly emotionally”? Are you kidding me. I encounters parents yesterday that couldnt teach their 10 year old to cover his 2 back to back sneezes. They didnt even correct him when he fully sneezed in open. Unfortunately, it appears you can become president without them.
