IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EQ
Psychological research suggests that fewer children are able to cope with the complex range of emotions that they are confronted with these days. Globally, experts have reported a decline in emotional intelligence (EQ) amongst children and this is detrimental to their capacity to resolve conflict, explore new activities and achieve more in life. Child therapist and social worker, Shontell Fiet, has developed a unique game, iFeel, as an easy-to-use, affordable tool for parents and teachers to facilitate an environment in which children are encouraged to identify, express and regulate their feelings more effectively.The game includes a deck of 14 animal-themed cards that promotes a fun and non-threatening context in which children aged four and older can safely explore and express their feelings. Each game costs R250. For purchases, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.ifeelgames.co.za.
