INTEGRATE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE INTO SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Charity Bomb is raising money to support our efforts to have Emotional Intelligence integrated into our school curriculums

We are not interested in putting a band-aid on the afflictions that our constituents face, we are interested in fixing the problem. With this initiative, we are getting to the root of the issue and offering a solution.

“Charity Bomb aims to eradicate bullying, violence, anxiety and depression among teens and adolescents by teaching children the emotional tools that necessitate their successful navigation through the bumpy, often difficult trials of their youth.”- Matthew Leone, Founder, CEO Charity Bomb

The number one fear among parents is bullying in school. Why does bullying occur? Schools want to push this burden off on to the parent(s) because it’s true, it starts at home, and parents are responsible for instilling these values in their kids. Children emulate their environment. Sadly, not all children have the great fortune of growing up with two loving parents who embody high moral and ethical values. This isn’t a blame game, it’s a fact. But the purpose of education is to prepare our children for life, and we haven’t found a single argument that opposes our belief that this affliction can be eradicated if our education system teaches Emotional Intelligence as a bona fide subject in the middle school curriculum. Inversely, we’ve found an abundance of evidence, to add to logic and reasoning, that if our children are taught Emotional Intelligence in school, the depression, violence, bullying, anxiety, and suicides can be mitigated entirely, thus, preparing our children for life.
