After finishing the “Emotoscope” ap for Facebook I was shaking dust from my brain to come up w/ another fun way for people to learn about feelings. Said to Patty (my wife), “How about a cool online EQ jeopardy game?”
“Boring” – she said it more delicately. “I mean, what would you ask?” **
Emma (8) is listening in (as usual – big ears!!) and pipes up, “jealousy?”
Right on! “What is jealousy?” I continue to Patty, “Or how about ‘ a little anger + sadness’?” Blank look from Patty, Emma again:
Whoa! Emotional literacy in action.
And not enough. Maybe being intelligent about emotions is the foundation. Then the graduate course: to be intelligent with emotions.
