educational program? If you think it's math,
science, or grammar, you might be overlooking

Linda Lantieri joins forces with internationally renowned
psychologist Daniel Goleman to offer a breakthrough guide
for helping children quiet their minds, calm their bodies,
and identify and manage their emotions.
Now available to the public for the first time,
here are Lantieri's proven techniques arranged according
to age group, complemented by a spoken-word CD

"We need a new vision of education that includes
the mind and the heart," says Lantieri. With Building
Emotional Intelligence, parents, teachers, and caregivers
have the tools necessary to help build these invaluable skills
in the children they raise.
