- A baby cannot be born without emotions. How will he show them, how will he be able to control them himself, will he be able to understand another person, his emotions and feelings? All these questions related to emotional intelligence can and should be developed, firstly, in the family and then continue at school.

And this is a special area which is necessary to work on, - says RAE Academician Svetlana Veniaminovna Ivanova.
