9780091884239: The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

Its never been easy to raise children, and arguably it's even more difficult now. In "The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness", Dr. Edward Hallowell offers practical strategies for raising happy children. Through his work and research, and his experience as a parent, Hallowell has identified two primary goals for children: that they develop a sense of connection with those around them and, a sense of mastery over one or more areas of their lives. He has found that happiness lies in childhood-based skills such as playing, and being able to make and keep friends; learning to tackle difficult tasks; dealing with success and failure with grace; and being able to delight in the moment. As a parent remember the following key things: don't push your child in school - high academic achievement has no correlation with a happy adult life; put your efforts into helping your child become good at something that will become a passionate involvement (even if it is skateboarding!); don't try to rush your child's development; and teach your child good manners to help them to get on with people.
