Raising Enduringly Happy Kids: Genuine Happiness Deb Norris

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Washington County Starting Points: Barre
Instructor: Scott Noyes

Research is showing what qualities do and don't have an effect on our genuine happiness. Does making more money, staying healthy, getting as much education as possible or living in a sunnier climate actually make us happier? Advancing to the higher range of your sustainable happiness can be achieved by feelings you consciously choose to associate with the past, present and future. Realizing that we are capable of changing our emotional satisfaction with life puts us in control of making choices that will alter the way we look at being human. How could these psychological behaviors influence raising children? What can we do to help develop authentically happy children? Pleasures and gratifications are distinctly different behaviors. Where in the daily care of children can we increase gratification while stopping the emphasis society puts on pleasures?
