April Raising Happiness Newsletter: Happy, Successful, & Kind

April 29, 2013 | Newsletters, Happiness Matters Podcast | 0 comments

Parents frequently tell me that they just want their kids to be happy. More often, they act as though they just want their kids to be successful.

Like most parents, I want both happiness and success for my kids, and one more thing as well: I want my kids to be KIND. The more I read about the science of kindness, the more convinced I am that helping others is the very foundation of both happiness and success. So this post pulls together some of my postings about how to raise kids who are kind—as well as happy and successful.

Podcast: Fostering Creativity in Kids

March 7, 2013 | Happiness Matters Podcast | 0 comments

Tips for raising children who are great problem-solvers

We often think of creativity as being a personality trait rather than a skill that we can foster in our children. Which is it, really? Rona and I discuss how we can foster the ability to innovate in our kids—and why we might want to do this.

On another note: Rona and I are going to take a break from recording these podcasts for a little while while I work on another book. If you’ve just found this podcast, we encourage you to start at the beginning—there are over a hundred episodes on a wide range of topics. And if you’ve been listening for years, THANK YOU—from the bottom of our hearts. This podcast has been rewarding for us both because of listeners like you!

Warmest regards,

Please check out my podcast with Rona Renner either here on the Greater Good website, or here on iTunes. Happy listening!
