SO he is, at least, very emotionally expressive, as well as loving. Excellent. The concept of "Emotional Intelligence" is phoney and just an over-promoted and over-sold form of psychobabble, not respected by the psychiatric and psychological communities, and never anything anyone needs to worry about. Now, hat very reasonably actually concerns you is that he may be overly demonstrative of some negative emotions, such as crying very loudly, and you'd like to modify that behaviour before he goes to school. Much of a child's behaviour responds to what attracts attention and what doesn't. So explain to him calml that screaming and performing so loudly won't being him help and attention from people, but it more likely to make them turn away. Explain that you will come to help him if he asks quietly, and you will pay great attention if you notice that he is crying quietly, but that when he screams and makes too much noise, you find it just too upsetting, and will move away till you can't hear those horrible cries, as it bothers you so much. Let him know, pleasantly, that he is getting to be such a big boy now, that you know he can control these things better, and now by deciding whether to cry very loudly and send you away, or quietly and call you to him, he can control whether you come to help him
