Books for children and those who care for them
If you're researching a story on the importance of emotional literacy or the steps in emotion coaching, you'll want to talk to John Gottman.
The author of the new What Am I Feeling (Parenting Press, ISBN 978-1-884734-52-6, $12.95), Dr. Gottman has spent his career studying family relationships, marriage and couples. Raising An Emotionally Intelligent Child: The Heart of Parenting, his best known parenting guide, served as a basis for this introduction to parenting styles. It describes the five important steps that Dr. Gottman explains are part of "emotion coaching" children. Kids who can accept and express their emotions do better in life in many ways, he believes. They form stronger friendships, achieve more academically, recover more quickly from emotional crises and are physically healthier.
