Easy suggestions in this article from Vanderbilt University – Teach Kids Emotional Intelligence

teaching_emotions

Another good acronym to teach Kids (maybe 8 years and up) is to HALT

Are you feeling….
H – Hungry?
A – Angry?
L – Lonely?
T – Tired?
E – Embarrassed?
D – Disappointed?
Some days I think, HALTED-OS might also be helpful:
O – Overwhelmed?
S – Scared?

The First step to Emotional Intelligence is Self-Awareness – Teach your kids to HALT!
