How To Learn Emotional Intelligence

How To Learn Emotional Intelligence

We all know people who are excellent listeners, whether in business or our personal life. They always seem to know just what to say – and how to say it – so that we aren’t insulted or disturbed, no matter what scenario we’re in.

We’ve all met people who are masters at controlling their…

Things That Should Teach In School But Don’t (PART 1)

Things That Should Teach In School But Don’t (PART 1)

‘School’ – very complex yet well-install institutions meant to teach individuals, helping them have a job and succeed in life. I found that school is too focused on memorization; as a child, I learned my notes by heart and then went through exams, passed a test, and then forgot about everything.

The Benefits and Importance Of The Education In Prison

The Benefits and Importance Of The Education In Prison

Education is the key to opening new and otherwise unreachable doors for most people. This is why everyone should have access to it and why I believe that education in the prison system is a great way to develop the inmates’ skills and teach them skills that they can use in the outside world. The goal of prison shouldn’t be to detain people for the rest of their life, but rather they should educate these people, make them learn from…

It is one of the worst things that students may have to endure during their school years, as it will have major consequences on their later lives. They can come out of the situation hurt, traumatized,…

Parent-Teacher in Education; A Competition Or A Collaboration?

It’s been a tough two years for education. This pandemic has disrupted our lives, and the educational sector has taken a toll. It is an opportunity for teachers, caregivers, and parents to work together hand-in-hand to provide the best to the students; however, this is not going as planned; parents and teachers are not responding to this situation with ambition. They are mostly claiming their power within the sector, and most of the time, this is not pretty. Most of…
