Emotional intelligence and empathy, or the ability to put oneself in someone else’s shoes and consider their feelings and thoughts, is one of the most fundamental traits in good people. Studies have shown that having a high emotional quotient -- that is, being able to understand one's own feelings and the feelings of others and having self control and being able to control one's own emotions -- is an important component of success in life. To encourage empathy in your child, encourage your child to talk about her feelings and make sure that she knows that you care about them. When a conflict occurs with a friend, ask her to imagine how her friend might be feeling and show her ways of managing her emotions and work positively toward a resolution.
