Emotional Skills Are the Cornerstone of Well-Being

Good emotional skills help build strong self-esteem, create and maintain meaningful relationships, thrive academically, and stay healthy. Children are not born with good or bad emotional skills – they acquire these skills by observing and interacting with others.

All emotions are important and have a special purpose. Children need two things to become emotionally competent:
1) Support with emotional processing. We learn emotional processing by experiencing emotions!
2) Information about emotions and emotional skills.

Many of todays parents have learned to hide and suppress their emotions as a child instead of learning how to process them. But it is possible to be an emotion-focused parent even if you are still learning these skills yourself. We are here for you!
