Child's emotional intelligence development

What is emotional intelligence?

It can be defined as being the ability to understand oneself and others, and so the ability to manage relationships with others in the community.

From the first moment of birth a relationship is shaped between child and the outside world. That's why a wise physician puts the baby immediately to touch the skin of his mom to feel the warmth after the first shock of birth. When nurses take the baby to give him a bath, they return him immediately to his mother to hug him, and this is not just to feed the baby, but it is a river of love and compassion. So learn to give your child love and don't be only a source of food.

Psychologists confirm that the compassionate interaction includes a silent dialogue between mother and her baby, and it is the only way to develop the area in the brain responsible for memory and learning ability, called the hippocampus. 
Don't think that you can't teach your child to be compassionate and emotionally intelligent. I assure you that it is a behavior and an ability that can be planted and developed in your child.  1.       Read also: Learning Games for Kids
