My daughter attends an All Things E.Q. school. I am so appreciative for this wonderful, insightful program. I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving the helpful emails and have saved a number of them for future reference. All Things E.Q. has been the perfect compass for the times when I have needed a little extra guidance in this journey we call Parenthood. I think this is a great program for kids and adults. Thank you All Things E.Q. for making a positive impact.
All Things E.Q. has made a big difference in my parenting style. I really like the All Things E.Q platform and the emails are so fun to get! My son was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and we have been struggling with homework and school in general all year. The things you talk about in the All Things E.Q. emails have helped tremendously.
Thanks for all you do,
“We were so happy we had the opportunity to have Danna Evans speak with our National Charity League Chapter, here in Arizona. Teenage girls can be a difficult group to generate feedback from and they all spoke very highly about Danna’s presentation and the messages in All Things E.Q. Danna had the girls engaged and participating in the presentation. Both the girls and the moms felt it was a successful presentation. We would like to have Danna return and share more with our chapter in the future.”

My children, are at an All Things E.Q. school and are being taught how to best raise their EQ simply by being reassured that who they are matters. What parent wouldn’t want this for their child? When your children leave your care, most parents want nothing more than for them to be cared about by others nearly as much as they are within their home environment. It all starts w/in themselves. “All Things EQ” teaches them how to be their best self.
The program is primarily structured around four main questions:
1) Am I being kind & helpful in this situation?
2) Am I using positive self-talk?
3) Do I recognize the human in everyone?
4) Am I focusing on solutions instead of problems?
School-Home Communication is essential, and parents can opt-in to receive weekly emails about the lessons being taught at school. Via these emails, it is quite apparent that Danna Evans, the program’s creator, is passionate about helping schools help kids. One of the first emails sent home was about practicing “flexing your optimism muscle” by asking yourself, “Do you KNOW what part of today you are going to enjoy?” This simple question sets children up to look forward to one or more parts of their day. When that time comes, w/in their school day, they are more “Present” b/c they’ve been looking forward to it and set that as their personal “KNOWledge” for the day. As the lessons progress, the participants are taught about positive body language in school and how to truly “BE” as well as many other life-long lessons.
Quite frankly, it’s hard to find a personal favorite as they’re all completely 100% beneficial. Having a common language at home to what’s being taught at school has been completely helpful. In times of “crankiness”, it’s been quite effective to simply ask my children, “Are you being a part of the solution or the problem?” It stops them in their tracks and helps them reconsider their reactions/responses.
Today, w/ the help of technology, children tend to have more of an instantaneous gratification mentality rather than delayed. It’s become a hurried lifestyle w/ less heart-to-heart interaction than in the past. It’s SO important not to lose sight of our humanity…”BE”ing Human. I, strongly, feel that “All Things EQ” is a program that needs to be presented at all schools for our children’s future and our’s!

Growing up is hard. We need all the help we can get! (All Things E.Q.’s Team Building Workshop) has a lot of good, common sense advice that children, at this stage, need to be reminded of! It’s the kind of talk parents would have with their kids… but goes further and has more of an impact when it comes from an outside/expert source like Danna.

I can’t thank you enough for coming to talk with my daughters dance group. All the girls came away with such positive messages. My daughter went through the entire lesson with my son and I and we have pictures to prove it all over my kitchen. It’s opportunities like these to hear how every group, dance, baseball or Girl Scouts, etc can all benefit and learn to be supportive and work as a team!
Hats off to you and EQ for bringing that discussion alive!
All the best!!
I just love this (Quarter 1 Week 3 – Body Language) lesson! Another plus is that good posture is healthy to your core. It not only speaks outwards it speaks inwards. You have stronger core muscles, your digestive system works better, sitting or standing with good posture makes a healthier and happier person. Thank you for this lesson…I love having “back up”! (pun intended!)
Have a great day,
It was so great seeing you in real life and not just on Facebook! You were an excellent speaker at our National Charity League meeting today. Even my 14 year old thought you were very inspiring and interesting… and you KNOW how difficult it can be to please a teen! 🙂

Loved, loved your video tonight at Parent Orientation. I am so excited for this program to continue. We are so lucky to have you in our school. All Things EQ is amazing and you should be so proud of the difference you are making in so many lives!
