“As a parent, what is your #1 goal that you would like to achieve
before your kids finish adolescence?”
– Dr. Karyn
This is Dr. Karyn’s favorite question to ask her parenting clients around the world. Regardless of cultural or socio-economic background, the answers are strikingly similar. Most of her clients say: “I want my kids to be… confident, happy, passionate, resilient, goal-oriented, ambitious, decisive, wise, self-disciplined, independent, responsible, purposeful…”
It’s a simple (yet powerful) question that really helps us define our mission and values as parents. What most people don’t realize is that the character traits brought up as answers almost always fall directly under the umbrella of Emotional Intelligence – a set of character-building skills and habits that can be learned and applied by everyone.
