As parents, we all want our children to grow into happy adults. But sometimes we feel as though their personalities are already set in genetic stone. New scientific research reveals that happiness is a learned skill, and that parenting styles and practices have a tremendous effect on children’s emotional outlook on life. In Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents, Dr. Christine Carter reveals ten simple principles distilled from years of research that can help parents lay the groundwork for positive emotions now and into the future.

She covers the day-to-day pressure points of parenting—how best to discipline, get kids to school and activities on time, and get dinner on the table—as well as the more elusive issues of helping children build healthy friendships and develop emotional intelligence. In essence, Carter is empowering parents to set their kids up to thrive, and in the process, become happier parents themselves.
