I want to talk about what might possibly feel like the elusive art of raising happy children. Everywhere we are reading about children and teenagers struggling with their mental health and yet there are a vast number of children growing up happy. What’s the secret??

This episode is not about always taking the line to happiness but I do think happiness and what’s right are not mutually exclusive. You can most definitely raise a happy child by always doing what’s in their best interests. I’ll share my top 6 tips.
