How to teach your children to be happy
As parents, all we want for our children is for them to grow up happy. Compared to this one ultimate goal, others pale into insignificance. It doesn’t matter if your child has a school career festooned with string of A* exam grades and is set for a braggable future career, if they’re not happy. That means happy in themselves, happy with the world around them and armed with an ability to shrug off problems and move on.
And that’s a state of mind we can nurture in our children – an acceptance of themselves, a mental contentment, a willingness to see the glass half full rather than lament the lack of more.
