Parenting with Purpose
In our last EQ, last Saturday we connect some ideas to help parents be more purposeful and meaning for our society.
EQ, it’s more powerful and fun working together. So, after becoming a certified practitioner with methods and tools, I applied to become Network Leaders to host informal “EQ Cafés.” These gatherings are a way to build a local community of practice, sharing the power of emotional intelligence to increase insight – connection – Life purpose.
Collaborative Parenting emphasizes communication, negotiation, compromise, and an inclusive approach (Let’s solve this challenge together!) to family decision-making.
Parenting is hard work; You are being pushed to hone your skills of negotiation, patience, courage, and resilience every day.
The primary purpose of parenting is to raise fully functional adults who can take care of themselves and make a positive contribution to society. ... When an adult understands who they are separate from their family and peers, they can then form a healthy attachment to another person.
What are the Cafés About?
Each month I design and develop a new theme, publish the Café, and Network Leaders help to create meetings. Then we share the power of EQ in over 80 cities around the world. Each month, all around the world, members of this community are learning to collaborate on the theme.
What is emotional intelligence & EQ?
Emotional intelligence means being smarter with feelings. Technically “EQ” stands for “emotional quotient” but we just use “EQ” and “emotional intelligence” interchangeably… just like people use “IQ” to refer to someone’s general intelligence.
