Raising Happy Kids - #WondrousWednesdays

Want to know the secrets of raising happy kids?

There's a nice infographic by Happify which reveals some scientific studies on childhood happiness. They give us an idea of what makes kids happy and healthy - some pretty obvious stuff, like the love and acceptance of parents. Dads come out pretty important, in case anyone needed a reminder. I think a lot of dads forget or don't realize just how important they are.

There's also the concept of not praising children for their smarts, but for the effort they put in. It's about supporting their self-esteem and resilience, not their ego.

The happiest kids were in Mexico, Spain and Brazil, so maybe we can learn something from them....
