Why EQ Profiling & Assessment is Important for Child Development
The thoughts, feelings and emotions get induced in a person when s/he enters this world. It develops with time, and if one understands how to manage it at an early age rather than later, it works wonders at all levels. But there is a major problem. The parents, most with tall expectations from their children, make all the efforts to focus on increasing the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of the child and sadly do not think of the Emotional Quotient (EQ). In fact, many of them are not even aware of this field which is gaining ground at a swift pace and has emerged as the need of the hour. But you may ask, what is the need of focusing on EQ in the first place? .The answer is simple. If one cannot balance emotions or do not know how to control them, he or she faces the following problems leading to unwanted consequences:
- Distraction and disappointment.
- Academic performance suffers.
- Depression, possibly leading to some form of addiction.
Parents and teachers should understand that EQ is the feeder factor for IQ. If the EQ is higher, the IQ automatically improves. It is a fact that our mind stays with thoughts which are 25% positive and remaining, negative. If negative thoughts are erased through interventions; they turn into love, empathy, compassion, effective communication and positive outcomes. Higher level of Emotional Intelligence comprises of Self Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness and Relationship Management and brings great benefits for the person which are:
- Stress Management
- Conflict Resolution
- Social skills
- Judgement skills
- Leadership skills
- Self- esteem
- Empathy and compassion
- Improved performance
Our recommendation is that if you find your child becoming unmanageable, avail the assistance of an EQ profiling and assessment program. This will diagnose the symptoms so behavior management can be done. Thousands of students and parents in other countries have benefited from this approach and this is now being implemented in knowledge-driven societies like India.
