Karen Stone, CEO of SoftStone Productions helps children to become emotional intelligency with her 45 yrs experience in education, preschool-college. A BA in Special Ed/MA in Learning Disabilities. She is also a parent of a child with significant disabilities. Recently, she became certified as an EQ practitioner through Six Seconds. 

She has spent the last 30 years being a workshop leader and keynote speaker and has published children’s Emotional Intelligence programs (Pre-school-HS) that are research-based and have been piloted. Her EQforChildren.com website has been designed to provide, at no cost, helpful activities that are engaging and developmentally appropriate to all early childhood parents and caregivers so they can implement the “Voices of CJ” with fun and ease.

Her focus is now totally early childhood as brain research now stipulates that the emotional brain is developing the fastest between birth and six with EQ skills being critical for social and emotional learning as they are not innate. 

Karen published her story and life’s purpose in 2017 entitled, “Is Your Child’s World Emotionally Safe?” Book and Kindle version is available on Amazon. Her most exciting accomplishment in 2018 has been the creation of her YouTube channel, “Children Become EQ Smart with CJ.” Her fun and engaging characters teach Daniel Goleman’s 7 attributes of emotional intelligence with the animated, “Voices of CJ.”


Karen’s passion and dream of CJ, her life’s work and her professional and personal commitment to people with intellectual disabilities have now merged together. Recognizing the vocational abilities of people with disabilities and creating emotionally safe environments for children in homes and schools creates the opportunity for them all to reach their unique potential.
