In this webinar we were joined by Marcelle Waldman, owner and creator of FeelLinks! Marcelle joined us to discuss why emotional intelligence is so critical in the early years, and how the development of this core skill will support children in building resilience in the face of adversities. Marcelle explored the important connections between emotional intelligence and resilience, and what we as educators can do (and what we should avoid doing) to support children in developing healthy coping skills.

🧪Key Learning Outcomes from Marcelle!

- Emotional intelligence encompasses self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness and relationship management
- The three most important aspects of learning success,(attention, focus and memory) are all controlled by our emotions.
- The most important factor to developing resilience is supportive adult-child relationships
- Normalizing failure, struggles and big emotions will increase big emotions
- Adults who strengthen their healthy coping skills (asking for help, breath-work, journaling..) can be better models for children of handling big emotions and improving resilience
