The Importance of Building Emotional Intelligence
with Angela Pruess, LMFT
In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I’m talking with licensed child therapist, Angela Pruess, about emotional intelligence. Building emotional intelligence skills is an important part of raising kids with ADHD, kids who are often dysregulated emotionally and struggle with interactions with others. We discuss emotional awareness, emotional regulation, and how emotional intelligence plays a role in relationships with others and social interactions. Listen in to learn how to assess your child’s current emotional intelligence and then work on building skills where there are gaps.
“They need to be able to handle the highs and lows in life. Emotional intelligence skills will enable us to see that our kids thrive.” — Angela Pruess
