The Happy Kid Handbook on California Charter

happy kid handbook cover FINAL

Things are getting busy as we prepare for the 10/20/15 launch of The Happy Kid Handbook! If you’re curious about the book, check out this clip set to air on California Charter this week!

I chatted with host Brad Pomerance about all things Happy Kid, including how to reduce stress, why our kids are so busy and the importance of understanding temperament when it comes to parenting our kids.

We had a blast comparing parenting stories and discussing where to go from here. I hope you enjoy it!

Please consider preordering your copy of The Happy Kid Handbook today! Incidentally, I still have a few cute feelings faces magnets left to distribute for preorders…get yours while they last!
