All parents want their children to be happy, but no parent knows how to guarantee it. Now this ground-breaking book explores the way in which parents can influence their children's happiness, providing a postive framework for emotional growth.
Happiness is simutaneously the most sought after and most elusive human property. But it is also poorly understood. This book breaks new ground in two ways: by offering a scientific perspective on a subject often dominated by philosophers, artists and self-help gurus, and by looking at the origins of happiness in the individual.
Essential reading for everyone who wants to be happier or to make others happy, this remarkable book combines the latest research with indispensable advice to illuminate a little explored subject of large importance.
