The Knowing Garden Community School is happy to welcome trusted advocate for children and parents, Dr. Laura Markham to our community.
You've heard that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) may be more important to your child's success in life than IQ. Dr.Laura Markham of Aha!Parenting.com translates the research on emotional intelligence into practical everyday routines and strategies to help you raise a high EQ child.
•How you can help your child develop high EQ.
•How children learn to manage anger, hurt, disappointment and other strong feelings.
•Why emotional intelligence gives kids inner discipline and gets you out of the discipline business.
• Strategies to handle your own strong emotions so you can help your child.
Dr. Laura Markham,the author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids:How to Stop Yelling and Start Connecting, loves to answer audience questions about their kids. Join us to celebrate her new book!
