About The Event
Do you want your children to be successful AND stay successful, be happier and resilient, have better relationships with others, act responsibly, manage themselves better and be accountable? Sadly there isn't sufficient emphasis on these skills, called as Social-Emotional-Rational-Cognitive skills as much as there is an emphasis on learning factual knowledge in various subjects.
One study found that social and emotional skills in childhood were more predictive of success in the workforce than intelligence, with the most important skills being self-control, conscientiousness, and the ability to adapt to new situations. Other research has shown that students with strong social and emotional skills have better academic outcomes, including higher grades and test scores, and are more likely to graduate from high school and go on to college.
In addition to academic success, social and emotional skills are also important for physical and mental health. Children with strong social and emotional skills are more likely to have positive relationships with their peers, which can reduce the risk of bullying and other forms of social isolation. They are also more likely to have healthy habits, such as getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, and exercising regularly.
Finally, social and emotional skills are important for success in the household and in interpersonal relationships. Children with strong social and emotional skills are more likely to manage their emotions and behaviour effectively, which can lead to more harmonious and positive relationships with family members and others.
Overall, it is clear that social, emotional, behavioural, and cognitive skills are crucial for success in all areas of life, and it is essential for parents to prioritize the development of these skills in their children. Welcome to our online exam on Social emotional and rational life skills! This exam is designed to test and train children on essential skills that will help them navigate the ups and downs of life. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize and understand our own emotions, as well as the feelings of others, and to use this awareness to manage our behaviour and relationships effectively. Rational thinking, on the other hand, is the ability to use logic and reasoning to solve problems and make decisions. Both of these skills are essential for success in all areas of life, and this exam will help your child develop and strengthen these important skills. We hope you find this exam helpful and informative, and we wish your child the best of luck as they work to improve their emotional and rational life skills.
This examination is designed for the 6th and 7th graders. You shall receive a link to purchase study material once you sign up. The study material is completely optional.
