“Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child” by John Gottman, Ph.D.

From the brilliant psychologist and renowned couples’ researcher, John Gottman, comes this gem for curious parents.  In addition to 40+ years of researching couples’ relationships, Gottman has spent the past 20 years studying parent-child interactions, developing a style of parenting he calls, “Emotion Coaching.”  Parenting is the most difficult task we will ever tackle, but Gottman offers both the theoretical background for emotion coaching and practical tips about how to help your child become more self-aware, well-regulated and self-confident.  These are skills that can set children on a solid path for a lifetime of satisfying interactions and relationships.  (Spoiler alert:  learning these techniques isn’t just helpful for parents; it can improve ALL our relationships.)
