Kids & pets and emotional intelligence

I have to say that this article came along at just the right time. I’ve been reading the book A Country Called Childhood by Jay Griffiths and while she never uses the term emotional intelligence, her thinking is along the same lines.

The article is entitled “Kids Who Grow Up with Dogs and Cats Are More Emotionally Intelligent and Compassionate” by Starre Varten over at the Mother Nature Network.¬† Both are a good read.
