Video: Why Parental Happiness Comes First

September 7, 2011 | Posts with Videos | 0 comments

Welcome to our first video in a new series produced by the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, offering tips to parents for raising happy kids and for being happier themselves.

I’m really excited to introduce Lindsay Reed Maines, my partner in this project. 

This week, we are talking about the three main reasons that our own happiness as parents is important. I hope you’ll take the time to “schedule your bliss” after watching!

Special thanks to the Quality of Life Foundation, which made this series possible.
