Emotional Quotient:a friend or foe

 20170308_121540

Everybody in this world want to be a successful person but there are few who taste it.What is the measure of success is hard to define.Usually we believe that a person who scores well in exams say 90% is intelligent  while a child who scores say 60%is tortured (sorry to say this word but a bitter truth is that the child has to go through mental trauma). Here I would like to quote that 90% is says more about IQ (Intelligent Quotient) but what about EQ (Emotional Quotient).

IQ is important but EQ is nevertheless.

Emotional Quotient plays important role in real life situations whether at home with family, with friends or at the job place with boss and colleagues.  There are certain situations which demands to have a cool mind and analysis of that moment when you and the people around you are going through the  strong emotional storm . In such case you have to understand your own emotions and others too. There is guarante that you will be able to handle this if you are emotionally strong which in turn mean have  high Emotional Quotient .

Emotional Quotient hence means to understand one’s own emotions and others too. It includes analysis and interpretation of emotions to achieve the target goal.
Let’s have an example

You are running a business and someone who is utmost important for you  and  your Company needs to be hospitalised due to serious illness.Your employees are under stress. You too are facing an emotional stress. Here, which is more important? 


EQ or IQ or A GOOD COMBINATION OF BOTH.You can judge you self. 

Let’s talk about Leadership. Leader is the one who has an ability to lead a team to achieve certain goal.He motivates his team members and condition them  in a way that they can face  every situation. Can we consider the academic performance be the criteria to be a Leader???

Can we consider only academic intelligence as a reason for success????

There are many other factors involved which creates a the path for success. Only Academics can’t be a reason of success as I have discussed in the previous post

 Moreover the definition of success is different for different people. Is there only two types of intelligence or some other  forms  are also existing? I will surely discuss in the coming posts .

 In nut shell what I  can say that  how the child has conditioned for real life’s hard truths and face emotional storms is really matter.

                               SO,

      APPRECIATE  THE   KINDS   OF    INTELLIGENCE YOUR CHILD HAVE 

                                     AS 

APPRECIATION CAN DO WONDERS !!!

​LET’S SHAKE HANDS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES 

In this modern world we consider  ourselves educated,learned and well -informed but isn’t it really unfortunate that we are not ready to accept the truth with which our children are struggling. They are fighting a physical and emotional  battle against their own shadows.

Some  parents tell that child knows everything verbally but can’t put in writing .

Sometimes they shout at a child for not being able to tie a shoe lace or  not arranging a cupboard or a school bag according to the timetable and at times shaking a leg or  running here and there while discussion or learning.

And the most irritating task….writing a word  for 5 to 10 times to eliminate the probability of spelling error in a test. Unable to do so,the child gets a tag of being careless and irresponsible…..sad to say SLOW LEARNER

wp-1486102488485Tragically, such words  have great impact on the child’s psychology. By using such words you are forcing a child to enter in dark world of low self esteem where he tries hard to come out of that but all goes in vain.

It is like as if you are telling a person to lift a few kilos of bag Which he is not capable of doing and then  blamed for being lazy.

Basically , Parents  are afraid to accept that the child lacks a particular kind of skill and have learning difficulties with language or mathematical skill.

Now, its a high time to make ourselves aware of these learning disabilities a broader term of learning difficulties in psychology.
Learning disabilities or difficulties include discalulia  ,disgraphia , dyslexia ADHD, ADD…few more.

Once clinically diagnosed by a psychologist,  important corrective measures and steps are taken to bring the child back to the main stream. C0unselling of both parents and a child play an important role ,thus parent should not feel bad to go for the counselling sessions.

Cbse and few other state boards have also recognised  these challenges  and made  certain provisions for such students.http://cbse.nic.in/newsite/index.html

Inclusive education is an excellent opportunity for such students.
Remember that this is not a disease and need not to be looked upon.Such students can do wonders as their brain works in different way as compared to ours .

HERE ARE THE  FEW EXAMPLES
:

Winston Churchill: had a learning disability.

Walt Disney: had a learning disability.

Edison: Had a learning. He couldn’t read until he was twelve years old and had a very difficult time writing even when he was older.

Albert Einstein: Mathematician/Physicist: Had a learning disability and did not speak until age 3. He had a very difficult time doing math in school. It was very hard for him to express himself through writing.

Alexander Graham Bell: had a learning disability

Nelson Rockfeller, former Vice President: had a learning disability, dyslexia.

REMEMBER SUCCESS CAN’T BE MEASURED BY ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OR PERCENTAGE ONLY…
HOW YOU DEAL WITH REAL LIFE SITUATIONS…
THAT ALSO MATTERS…….

Don’t be a teacher only rather try to be an educator……

 

It has been more than 15 years in this profession which I rather say PASSION,Yes a passion for teaching. I have never thought of something else as I  considered it as my lifeline  till one day my son told me to write a blog.

Certainly it is great thing to share a good experience of one’s life and get some more from others in return.

Coming upto the expectations of your students and touching their lives is a greatest award that motivate you to climb up the ladder of success.

Today I wanna tell all my students that they are indispensable part of this education system which encourage  teachers to be not only a teacher but an educator who has ability to uplift the real talented hidden behind the walls of ignorance ,self doubts and insecurity.

“Dear Educators, Let’s hold the brush in your hand to remove the dust from the beautiful artifacts made by HIM to show their real face to the world ”

Let them feel and enjoy  this  enthralling, exciting, divine and beauteous life.

DEDICATED TO ALL THE STUDENTS  AND TEACHERS………..
