Emotions are important. These feelings and thoughts help us live through life with much more understanding. Learning how to deal with them is essential in order to maintain relationships with those around you: family, friends, partners, and co-workers.
As such, it is very important for growing children to learn the importance of managing and understanding one’s emotions. In their development stage, children need to be in tune with their individuality. Not only will it be beneficial for them, but it will help you, their guardian, to understand your child better.
As a Montessori school, we encourage our students to participate in the world around them. There is much to learn and what better way to do so than by exploring and mingling with others?
Emotional intelligence is taught here at our preschool in Maryland. We help children make the most of their time here by giving them appropriate and helpful teachings that will benefit them through life.
An emotionally intelligent child will be able to give children the following:
- Help them show appropriate emotional expression
- Learn to show empathy
- Help them label their emotions
- Develop problem-solving skills
- Teaches healthy coping mechanisms
Remember, emotional intelligence is an ongoing journey for you and your child. As such, it is essential to guide them through this process. Give them insight, advice, and the opportunity to correct any mistakes. It is not our job to coddle them but to let them learn how to eventually stand on their own.
Our child care in Rockville, Maryland, would like to help you with this journey.
Norbeck Montessori will help your child foster a lifelong love of learning. Our school also offers summer camp in Maryland, where they can be more tuned to the world.
