上周日我们荣幸请到普林斯顿的廖冰博士来给大家分享如何培养孩子的情商、逆境商。华人家庭普遍重视孩子的学业，但不少家长却`忽视了孩子们成长过程中更重要的情商和面对挫折失败的逆境商，以致最近接二连三出现华人孩子在名校自杀事件，令人痛心。廖冰博士结合自己多年的教书育人经验以及自己家庭、孩子的成长经历， 讨论了如何帮助孩子了解自己的情绪? 怎样控制自己的情绪？怎样有热情地实现有意义的目标？如何了解别人的情绪？教育孩子换位思考：要想别人怎么对待你，你也应该怎么对待别人。她建议父母成为孩子的好朋友，了解孩子所处的环境，推荐几本好书及 录像供家长参阅。 每个孩子都是上天赐给父母的宝贝，都是独特的，不要跟别人的孩子攀比。 愿我们的孩子们都能够身、心、灵健康成长。
Summary of parenting seminar on Oct 12, 2014
Last Sunday Dr. Bonnie Liao from Princeton came to share with us her experience on how to raise emotionally-intelligent children, and focus on their mental health besides academic achievements. How can we help our kids to be more emotional intelligent and resilient through effective communications? Dr. Liao shared with us about the good book from Daniel Golman <<Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ>>. Key points are summarized:
1. Know your emotion as it happens
2. Manage your emotion
3. Marshal your emotion to a meaningful goal, and apply your passion to an achievable goal.
4. Know others’ emotion: Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated; Platinum Rule: treat others the way they want to be treated.
5. Manage other people’s emotion
Books and video recommended :
Dr. Leonard Sax:
1. <<Girls on the Edge>>
2. <<Why Gender Matters>>
3. <<Boys Adrift>>
4. <<Men are from Mars and Woman are from Venus>>
