Just got to witness a great interaction between my 3 year old son and his 15 month old sister. If it wasn’t for Emotion Coaching I’m convinced this would have ended in a classic Brother and Sister fight. After you watch the above video, think about the difference between a brother and sister who treat eachother like I just witnessed my children do, and a brother and sister who don’t.
Thirty years from now, how close will your children’s relationships be with their siblings?
While I’m no prophet, it sure seems to me, that children who grow up treating each other with the concepts of empathy that the Emotion Coaching parenting style teaches, are going to be a whole lot closer to their brother’s and sisters.
But that’s just my two cents. You’ll have to decide that on your own.
>Recommended Resource: If you are not familiar with the Emotion Coaching parenting style, I would highly encourage you to pick up a copy of the book, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child.
