Abstract: Children today are different because the world is different. As a teacher, as a parent can stand in front of them with authority he must have personal value. Only the personal value makes the educator an education authority that is worth loving and following, a stimulator for training and becoming. Only the personal value derived from the above features makes the teacher a loved and followed education authority, stimulator for the little man’s training and becoming. Expressed in psychological terms, it is necessary that the teacher should be emotionally intelligent. Although the term is relatively new, as for the approach, the emotionally intelligent teacher does nothing else than to follow the advice of great scholars of his time and to respect the psychological and pedagogical principles of the Three Hierarchs. Regardless of the subject taught: religion, science, languages, civic, parenting, the goal is the same: the formation of a young man with a mind well furnished, reconciled with himself and the others, responsible and engaged in age-specific activities. For that we need a real reform, genuine and effective, which should start with educating the educators
