We often hear parents say, “I just want my children to be happy,” but they also admit that it’s confusing to figure out how to raise happy children—and be happy themselves—on a daily basis. How can we create a home environment where happiness is important for everyone in the family—and limit setting, discipline, and respect are all a part of the equation? Join Dr. Christine Carter and Nurse Rona Renner for conversations from the heart about the science and best practices related to raising happy children. Each week we'll release a new podcast about 10 minutes on Thursday.
