The success of adapting to the requirements of the environment with the level of
development of intellectual abilities has been recently associated, separating the rationality of
emotions. Although the skills are very important, emotions are a source of vital information for
survival. Emotional intelligence in adult life has its origins in the development of socio-emotional
skills in the small school age, a period of fundamental acquisition in emotional, social and cognitive
terms. Emotional awareness is the basic ability to purchase the other components. Children learn
about emotions and how they can be properly managed in the context of social interactions. Their
experiences in relationships with others help them learn about the rules of expressing emotions, about
their recognition, about emotional adjustment.
