The Importance of Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child: Erika Brodnock (Transcript)

Thank you.

We’ve also won some awards which has been brilliant stuff as well. But there are a couple of characters that I didn’t tell you about before. And they’re the Bloomabears, so half flower, half bear. They bloom when they’re positively impacted, and they wilt when they’re negatively impacted.

So the mission is to enable children to become bloomers, not wilters.

So what I’m asking you guys to do in the audience is if you’re parents, I’d like to ask you to look at the following questions.

And that is: how can I help my child bloom? How can I ensure that my child helps others to bloom?

And whether you’re a parent or not, how can you pollinate positivity in the next generation?

Because what we’re looking to do here is actually start to get children looking at why they feel a certain way, how they’re actually feeling before that, why they feel that way and what they can do to shift to a more positive emotion?

But that starts with you, because if you guys start doing that, then it inspires children to be able to do the same.

So I’ve been Erika Brodnock and you’ve been a very kind audience.

Thank you very much.
