Socio-Emotional Capacity Building in Primary Education

The more technology we have in this digital age, the more we automate tasks and trust machines to take over duties, the more we realize the importance of emotions and more specifically social-emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is our ability to recognize emotions in ourselves and others, to understand their effect, and to use that knowledge to guide our thoughts and behaviours. Because emotional intelligent people tend to get along better with others and be more empathetic and compassionate, they are likely to be more successful compared to their counterparts. And that makes emotional intelligence something worth learning more about. Thus it is more than vital to start to talk about emotional intelligence since primary school, but not only for training children but also to train teachers and parents that are fundamental figures in the children emotional development.
