往往,作父母的都期望, 自己的孩子能在危机和竞争面前从容不迫,冷静思考,知道什么是正确的决定. 其实, 这就是一个很好的高情商的例子. 高情商的翻译出自英文Emotional Intelligence. 能够感觉自己的感情变化,并能控制和处理这种变化需要智慧. 孩子的判断和控制能力就是这种智慧的表现. 专家学者的研究证明 - 孩子将来的幸福和成功之路有很大一部分是由孩子情商的高低来决定的.
那么，我们这些做父母的﹐如何在价值观和东西方文化的冲击中帮孩子成长为高智商,高情商的人创造一个适合他们生长的环境呢？您如果是一个成功的父母，那您的教育心得是什么？如果您认为自己是一个失败的父母，那从您的失败的教訓中有什么值得让其他父母借鉴的呢？如何才能给我们的孩子的情商发展创造机会呢？当你,配偶和孩子有冲突的时候，如何在孩子面前正确处理？你有没有意识到孩子正通过观察你的言行来发展情商? 作父母,是不是也需要通过进一步提高自己的情商来帮助孩子呢? �� 太多的话题需要探討。为了进一步深入探讨这个课题，父母子女教育俱乐部与多维时报共同协力，正在筹备召开第三届华人子女教育研讨会，会议的主题就是�怎样培养和提高孩子情商�， 目的在于让我们的华人家庭来参与对子女教育的探讨，为孩子们的健康发展提供一个参考，也让我们的华人家庭有机会学习一些有效的子女教育的方法，以及分享成功的经验，避免再重复走失败的路。更重要的是来听听大会主讲 - 孩子情商培养专家的建议和指导. 大会召开时间：2006年9月9日星期六；地点：Clarion Hotel at Edison Square, 2055 Lincoln Highway, Edison, NJ 08817. 联络人：Wei Tang: ***-***-5849; Cindy Yu ***-***-3130; 张颖婷***-***-7731; 牛新莉 ***-***-8066。我们欢迎社区其他社团积极参与此次活动，更欢迎商家及各人能够积极赞助这次非常有意义的活动。
