EQ Kids was developed by Dr Elize Groenewald, clinical social worker and psychotherapist with more than 20 years of experience with both children and adults. The programme is developed to help children between the ages of 3 and 12 years to become emotionally empowered, and thus to be emotionally self-sufficient.The aim of this programme is to develop, empower and stimulate children on an emotional level.
An emotionally empowered child is a child who is keen to learn. Academic ability alone doesn’t guarantee coping skills in real life situations. Therefore, emotional empowerment forms important building blocks for the child’s adult life.
An emotionally strong child is a child who can look after him- or herself and who can cope with the ups and downs of adult life. Emotional building-blocks are formed during childhood. There are many adults who were excellent achievers in school, yet struggle to cope with pressure at work or tension in a relationship.
In many cases parents focus mainly on the cognitive development of their child. Children often use academic achievements as an anchor to sustain their sense of self-worth. This may support the child during school, but can easily collapse when entering adult life. In contrast to this pattern, an emotionally empowered child finds it much easier to cope in school and with challenges. The child develops a good self-esteem without the stress to do things perfectly. They can take risks without the fear for failure and rejection. Over protection of parents is also a big problem because children become fearful.
The main aim of EQ Kids is to emotionally develop, empower and stimulate children with a good self-esteem. Make your child streetwise with emotional empowerment.
