Can parents predict how well their children will do in life
as they get older?
Listen as Dr. Gottman talks about raising "emotionally intelligent" children.
At the Gottman Relationship Institute, we understand that parenting is one of the most important, intense challenges adults may face. “Before I became a father," explains Dr. Gottman in his book Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, " I spent nearly twenty years working in the field of developmental psychology, studying the emotional lives of children. But it was not until our child arrived in 1990 that I began to truly understand the realities of the parent-child relationship.” Intense love, frustration, joy, disappointment, and vulnerability are just some of those realities.
The Gottman Relationship Institute supports families by providing parenting tools based on Dr. Gottman’s research. Below are some support options offered through the Institute.
