Stepfamily Central – The Importance of Emotional Intelligence to Stepmothers

Do you know what emotional intelligence is? It’s an intelligence that has to do with discerning and understanding emotional information, relating well to others, and achieving your goals. Rachelle discusses the importance of emotional intelligence and how stepmothers can develop more of it with Joan Sarin, a social psychologist who specializes in emotional intelligence training for children and parents. Joan is also a stepfamily coach, a writer for Stepmom Magazine, and is the author of The Emotionally Intelligent Stepmom, a book which will be released this summer.
