Explanation of the Post
My scientific investigation is about the importance of practicing emotional intelligence with children at the school. This is essential because it prevents from bullying and aggressions; for example, bullying incidents are a growing concern for educators and policy makers because they are seen as manifestations of incompetent socioemotional functioning and help and facilitate good academy results because if you have a good sentiment and a good state of mind, it is easier that you get better results than if you don’t have this. In other words, improving children’s emotion-related self-beliefs may result in successful adaptation at school and improved peer status.
On the other hand, spirituality is a coping mechanism that is very effective to enhance and maintain emotional resilience in children at school age. Physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual health are important elements for humans to survive. The fulfilment of physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual health is a good way for children to avoid stress. Spirituality influences the formation of children’s emotional resilience and is used as a tool to improve children’s mental health.
In conclusion, nowadays, in schools the emotional intelligence does not have much importance and the teachers don’t practice this with children. However, many investigations say and show that this is so very important for people and in concrete with children. In my opinion, it is more important than theoretical and academic knowledge. Therefore, from the education, the future teachers and pedagogues have to focus on emotional intelligence, mental and spiritual health and sentiments, namely practicing this with more frequency.
