People with a higher level of wellbeing are happier, perform better & perceive a higher quality of life. Support our children and allow them to enhance their Wellbeing Quotient (WQ). From IQ to EQ (Emotional Intelligence) to….WQ. With our WQforKids Foundation we would like to stimulate children to reach their highest potential, helping them to get more out of life.
It is like Deepak Chopra once said: “Well-being changes as we move through life, which is why a child's version of it cannot be the same as an old person’s.”
At Primary school in the Netherlands limited attention is paid to wellbeing of the children. How do we expect children to learn how to take care of themselves if we don’t teach them? Why do we teach them to be competitive but ask them to collaborate when joining the workforce? Why do we encourage them to learn things that will be taken over by computers and hardly spend time on being creative. For that reason, it is up to us to make sure a shift is made. Therefore, WQforKids was founded with the aim to improve the Wellbeing (WQ) of our children.
