Happy Kids on HuffPost Live!


Let me start by saying that I am humbled by the response to my latest article on the Huffington Post, “7 Secrets of Highly Happy Children“.  The fact that happiness made front page news warms my heart and gives me hope.  Many thanks to all who have read and shared the happy.

This morning, HuffPost Live News interviewed me about my article.  We chatted about all things happy and how to help kids experience greater happiness, even during times of stress.  I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out.


Thanks, as always for your readership and support.  I hope you’re having a happy summer and soaking in every last moment before the new school year begins.
