Happy Child, Happy Adult by Edward Hallowell

Book Description

It's never been easy to raise children, and arguably it's even more difficult now. In this measured and humane book Dr Edward Hallowell offers a sensible strategy for raising happy children. In his plan he has two primary goals for children: 1) that they develop a sense of 'connection' with those around them and 2) the development of a sense of mastery over one or more areas of their lives. When parents guide their children towards these goals, the outcome will be good. Other key issues he raises are: -Don't push your child too hard in school -High academic achievement has no correlation with happy adult life -Put your efforts into helping your child become good at something that will become a passionate involvement -Don't try to rush your child's development -Teach manners
