On the eve of the SDG Summit 2030, we at Make Mothers Matter draw attention to the topic of Emotional intelligence, often overlooked in educational systems, which we believe is essential for healthy relationships, mental well-being, sound decision-making, and leadership development (SDGs 3 and 4). By recognizing the importance of mothers’ and their families’ mental health, we can make significant strides towards achieving multiple SDGs and creating healthier, more equitable, and sustainable communities.
To address this, we decided to partner with La Granja Ability Training Center , which offers online Emotional Wellbeing resources for families. This collaboration equips families with tools for emotionally intelligent child-rearing, fostering self-esteem, emotional balance, effective communication, trust-building, and challenging perfectionist ideals.
These resources offer helpful reminders that “emotions are neither good nor bad” but allow us to adapt and are assets when processed in a healthy way. Upcoming videos will delve into topics like preoccupation, impatience, vulnerability, anxiety, stress, joy, and pressure. The videos are available on the MMM YouTube page.
