Supporting Our Children’s Emotional Intelligence & Empathy

What Dr. Colleen Cira can say in an interview about
Supporting Your Child’s EQ & Empathy:

Dr. Cira has worked with hundreds of people struggling to parent the way they’d ideally like to. There are several ways that you can increase your child’s emotional intelligence and empathy.

        1. You must have empathy yourself. The most effective way that kids learn is by watching the way their parents behave. If YOU, the parent, have and demonstrate empathy, your children will grow up to be empathic. Give money to homeless folks, check in on friends, family, and neighbors who are ill and/or struggling, take your child to a peaceful, family-friendly protest, volunteer at a food bank together. SHOW UP the way you’d like your child to show up someday.
        2. You must accept your child’s emotions. This sounds easy but is not. It’s hard to see our children hurting—we’re actually biologically programmed to struggle to tolerate it. We want to make it better for them if they are sad. We want to make it go away if they are angry. But in order for our kids to learn how to accept other people’s feelings as they are, we have to teach them how to accept THEIR OWN feelings and the only way to do that is when WE accept their feelings. Let your kids experience big feelings without fixing or punishing.
        3. When your kid has an absolute meltdown about something, once they’re calm, talk it through with them. When your child is freaking out about something big or small, that is NOT the time to try to reason with them. Validate their feelings at the moment (that does NOT mean give them whatever they want), help and/or let them calm down, and then ask them to talk through everything that happened, just like they’re telling a story. Have them tell you the beginning, middle, and end and what they learned from it. See our children’s brains are not fully developed and won’t be for a long time (think mid-20’s – GASP!) which includes the connectivity between the two hemispheres. When you help tie a child’s emotional response to a rational (and verbal) response, you help them develop their brain in a way that honors their emotions but also increases their rationality.
        4. Talk about feelings. Your kid doesn’t show up in the world knowing when they are sad, scared, angry, or worried. YOU have to teach them that. The only way to have empathy—an understanding and acceptance of another’s feelings—is by having an understanding and acceptance of your own feelings. This means you need to know what the heck you’re feeling! There are subtle differences between sadness and grief. Anger and frustration. Anxiety and fear. Help your child start to learn those things and tease them apart by labeling and talking about feelings. Share your own feelings. Take a guess at what they’re feeling and believe them when they say it’s not that. When you read books or watch movies together, encourage them to speculate on how the characters are feeling or what they are thinking. All of these things encourage 1) feeling identification and 2) perspective taking both of which are required for empathy.

What Dr. Eilber Can Say about
Older Women & Sex Topics of Interest:
 

Women over 40 definitely ask different questions because many have stable partners and are experiencing issues associated with perimenopause/menopause. This is because different phases in life are dependent on hormonal changes. The biggest difference between older and younger women’s sexual inquiry is women over 40 are asking how to regain/maintain their sex life during the transition to menopause, while younger women are often asking about how certain birth control measures can affect libido or how to prevent bladder infections.

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Imparting Financial Education to Our Children:

tip #1 Teach the Value of Money 

Kids are much smarter than we give them credit for. They absorb everything around them, most notably, our own activities and interactions. The absolute key to raising a financially successful future adult is making sure kids understand that money is earned. When they see us swipe the credit card and move on or push a button to get cash at the ATM, they don’t connect with what it took to earn the money in the first place. By placing value around the work we do and encouraging children to do the same, our kids start to think about purchases in terms of work. They become more discerning in their decisions and less prone to waste.
