Being the best mom you can be, keeping your child safe online, gratitude vs. entitlement, divorce, and more!

Happy Memorial Day! 

I hope you’ll stop by the Raising Happiness blog this week to check out some of the postings you might have missed. My favorite post this month was about finding happiness on Facebook. Although my kids aren’t on Facebook yet, I am, and it was instructive to research ways Facebook can make us feel happier or more isolated, depending on how we use it.

What do you think? How does Facebook make you feel happy and connected? Or do you feel lonely when you use it? I’d love to hear from you; comment here.
