Raising Happiness

April 26, 2012 | Happiness Matters Podcast | 0 comments

How (and why) we set limits on something as awesome as the iPad, TV, and Xbox.

But just because kids love swimming in the sea of apps and techonolgies available to them, doesn’t mean that they don’t need firm limits placed on their usage.

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