100,000 Happier Parents: Are You Willing to be One? | Momfulness | Scoop.it
A call to arms for happier parents (and kids) everywhere


So whenever I see research which shows that parents are, on average,less happy than their childless counterparts, my heart sinks.  Equally devastating to me is the research that reveals how my generation of women is unhappier than previous generations. If we aren’t happy, our children aren’t likely to be happy, either.  And I really don’t want my children’s generation to follow in our unhappy footsteps.

Kids are only as happy as their parents....

American Institute Health Care Professionals's curator insight, September 6, 2013 3:28 PM

Grieving children need healthy ways to respond to death.  Grieving children should be treated openly and allowed to express themselves.  It is when grieving children are prevented from allowing to mourn or express themselves that psychological maladies can develop that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

“We think that in helping young people become more grateful, they will feel happier and more satisfied with their lives. In addition, it may make them less likely to lash out at others when they lose a game or feel hurt in some way.”

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 14, 2013 9:38 PM
