Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Building Emotional Intelligence will be a welcome resource for parents and teachers seeking to teach children to slow down and listen to their inner voices."
- Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund

"We all know kids struggle with stress. Now, Building Emotional Intelligence tells us how to help. Lantieri's simple but powerful exercises will help you inoculate your child with crucial coping skills to face a range of life challenges."
- Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls

"This is the best book I know to help children learn inner-life practices that can strengthen and sustain them. A moving mix of compassion, skillful means, and wisdom that can support young people growing up in a perilous but still promising world."
- Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach

"In this collaboration, Linda Lantieri and Dan Goleman form a dream team to help children discover and refine their deep inner capacities for well-being, calmness, relaxation, and emotional intelligence. Their program is a marvelous way for parents and their children to adventure together to build inner strengths and resiliency in dealing with the many stresses that children face in their daily lives."
- Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D, Founding Director of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society

"This book is critically needed at this important time in education in the United States. Schools have been consumed with improving children's math and literacy skills, but too often have neglected the important impact of strong social and emotional learning skills."
- Carol Comeau, Superintendent, Anchorage School District & Chair, Executive Committee, the Council of Great City Schools

"What a gift Linda Lantieri and Daniel Goleman give to children with Building Emotional Intelligence! The wonderful and appealing exercises and activities promise to cultivate in children a deep reserve of calm and inner resilience that will sustain them now and for the rest of their lives."
- Nancy Carlsson-Paige, author of Taking Back Childhood

"A comprehensive guide with practical exercises for parents and their children to calm the body and focus the mind. Using principles derived from modern brain research, Linda Lantieri has created a novel curriculum that promises to be enormously helpful in building a foundation for a successful life by cultivating skills in managing disturbing emotions, increasing empathy and cooperation and instilling calmness. This book and accompanying CD will be of interest to all parents who wish their children to be happy and successful."
- Richard J. Davidson, Director, Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Meet the Author

Psychologist Daniel Goleman was born on March 7, 1946 in Stockton, California. He earned a Ph.D. from Harvard. Goleman wrote his first book, "The Meditative Mind" after studying ancient psychology systems and meditation practices in India and Sri Lanka. Goleman wrote about psychology and related fields for the New York Times for 12 years beginning in 1984. In 1993 he co-founded the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. He is also a co-chairman of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations and a member of the Mind and Life Institute's board of directors. Goleman has written several popular books, including "Emotional Intelligence," "Social Intelligence," and "Ecological Intelligence." He received a Career Achievement award for journalism from the American Psychological Association and was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to recognize his efforts to communicate the behavioral sciences to the public.

    Great book for parents and children

    This is a great book. The author Linda Lantieri provides an indepth, detailed guide for raising emotionally healthy children and adults. The exercises described are comprehensive, easy to follow and are designed to meet the needs of children in various age groups. The accompanying CD by Daniel Goleman is an added bonus. I am a parent and a former teacher. I have started doing a few of these activities and am looking forward to trying out more as my child grows. Love this book.

    This book includes a clear and detailed description of emotional
    intelligence. The activities and suggestions provided are easy to use
    and supported by a CD included with the book. Thoughtfully crafted
    secular language is used throughout the book. Separate chapters are used
    to show how the practices change over time, acknowledging the different
    developmental stages of childhood and adolescence. Most importantly, the
    book includes a chapter with a set of principles to guide adults as they
    prepare to share the activities with children.
