Daniel Goleman says, "Children on average are growing more lonely and depressed,
more angry and unruly, more nervous and prone to worry
and more impulsive and agressive.
It is accompanied by alienation, drug abuse, crime,
violence and bullying.
It is becoming very apparent that a rising IQ
accompanied by a dropping EQ is the problem.
It is thereore no more merely an advantage
to develop the EQ skills of children -
It has become anabsolute necessity!"
