Q’s Race to the Top is an interactive, engaging emotional intelligence board game.  Mompreneur of three kids, Sofia Dickens, designed this game for practicing social skills and behavior. It’s meant for children ages three and above.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (also called social-emotional learning) is the ability to understand, use, and manage emotions.

It includes: reading social cues, self-motivation, delaying gratification, coping with life’s ups and downs, managing relationships, decision-making, and problem-solving.

We know from research that emotional intelligence in children often leads to life success. (And that it can be taught and practiced.)

But you’re wondering if it’s any good. In our opinion, YES! My kids enjoy the questions and actions. My husband and I enjoy watching them having fun while practicing their EQ skills. It’s a game worth the investment of $29.99 available at Target or online.
