When talking about good parenting skills, patience is one of the most important of them all. All throughout the life of a child, a parent will be tested for his or her patience. Patience is when they make sure that the baby is delivered healthy by avoiding vices, taking care of the children after work on late nights, when the kids are having tantrums or if your partner is not being as supportive. Patience is a key to strong parenting and it also helps you to strengthen your character, become more analytical and more understanding to the things and events happening around the household.
Look to the past to a situation where it was unlikely that you were going to succeed and you did. Where in your scholastic years did you excel?

Yet another enabler to Generation Excess was the information age that they grew up with. The growth of the media brought things into the home in a way that had never been encountered before. Children were bombarded by the many types of “stuff” that were available to them. The kids attacked the unknowing parents with demands for the images that were being pushed upon their young minds. The children were told that this new “thing” or that new “stuff” would make them happy. They carried this message to the parents that were waiting to do anything to fulfill that happiness. Pretty soon, MP3 players, cable modems, and game systems were ranked on household’s lists the same as food and shelter.
Now I’ve been talking about this concept in terms of creating a new girlfriend or boyfriend, but this is really applicable to ANY area of your life where you’re trying to create a “relationship” of some kind.
No matter what type of job you have, having good social skills is a huge bonus, and in some cases it’s even necessary. Well, having good emotional intelligence in your personal life is absolutely necessary. Always. Having good social skills and confidence around women is the easiest way to get a girl to like you simply because, well, women like that in a man. So if you have great social skills at your job, but not so much in your personal life just take a good look at how you handle yourself at work and learn from it.
If you’re concerned about your nephew, go ahead and get involved. But don’t get your hopes up. These days, most home-schoolers understand the importance of social – as well as academic – development. Your sister’s isolation of her son has put him at a huge disadvantage relative to other children his age. At some point he’ll want to buy a Big Mac, drive a car, ask a girl on a date, or get a job. And unless something changes, he won’t be prepared.
Thus, we have seen how apart from intelligence of brain something else in our body too has intelligence to help us act in situations, Intelligence of heart, Wisdom-of-heart. Wisdom-of- heart-is-important since it helps us act in situations where intelligence of brain fails miserably.
