Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EI) is something I value highly and focus on with my children. It is the key to both personal and professional success. EI is defined as “the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.”

I discovered an amazing company called EQtainment through TryAzon. EQtainment created some fun games and tools to help kids develop emotional intelligence skills. I was lucky to be selected to host an EQtainment party and share the products. Admittedly, my expectations were low at first. However, I was impressed by all of the products, and I would enthusiastically recommend them.

When my party package arrived, my kids were very excited to try everything out. We immediately played the Q’s Race to the Top Board Game, and we all had lots of fun. It’s a fun board game with open-ended questions and physical activities. The “DO” cards challenge the player to do a fun physical challenge to improve balance and coordination (balancing a book on your head while walking, for example). The “YOU” cards ask the player questions about themselves and their feelings. The “Q” cards describe different social situations and ask the player for advice on handling them. My daughter is only 2, so she didn’t fully get it yet, but she still had lots of giggles. My soon-to-be 5-year-old son loved it and wanted to play again.

A travel version of the game, Q’s Race on the Go Pack, was also included in the party pack. It contains 90 question and action cards in a travel-size carrying case. It’s perfect for flights, road trips, or even restaurants.

One item I seriously underestimated is the Q-Time Buddy. It’s a cuddly plush that comes with instructions for a breathing exercise to help develop focus and attention span. This is an amazing tool for a child to learn to manage their emotions.

Q’s Wild Ride Read-Along Storybook & CD is a short story that helps kids learn lessons in empathy. Adults can read the book with kids, or kids can listen to the story on the CD and follow along in the book. In Q’s Coloring & Activity Book, kids help Q navigate important social scenarios through visual identification as they color.

The Q Wunder app has a customizable learning pathway with educational games, and interactive kids show, music videos, plus a podcast and other resources for parents. It is available on iOs or Android. The pilot episode of the Q Wunder Show did a great job of teaching how to be patient in a fun and entertaining way.

    I went to the website and was really pleasantly surprised by how much I like this line of products. The designs are bright and colorful, very old-school. I’m glad this is a new thing kids can do that doesn’t involve a computer game.
