How to Raise a Happy Child (and be happy too) Book Review
“How to Raise a Happy Child” Book is a wonderful read and gives the parent alot of “aha” moments that really work.
This book is unlike any other parenting book that I’ve read. The book included how-to videos within the book that can be scanned with a phone’s QR code reader or viewed online as well. It guides a parent to be a positive mentor and not the child’s dictator and gives plenty of alternates to deal with parent-child situations. The “How to Raise a Happy Child” book is about giving choices to a child while getting what you want done without feeling like a dictator (like what I felt sometimes).
Kaiden is a wonderful child at just turned six (New Years Baby). He remembers his manners and knows the magic words, please and thank you. He goes a little further by thanking the action of the person. But, I must admit that he had alot of coaching from his mom to get to that point.
But, there are other times that become a bit difficult, such as his bedtime and picking up his train tracks he’s laid out on his bed. I found myself ordering him to pick up his tracks and getting a tantrum instead. After reading the “How to Raise a Happy Child” book, I decided to apply this choice technique. Instead of ordering him, I gave him a choice of sleeping with or without the train tracks on his bed. And you know what? Something did click! He saw that it would be uncomfortable sleeping with the tracks on his bed. He chose to put away the tracks without any tantrums or back-talking. So, that problem has been solved. I no longer have to give him the choice. There are no tantrums of not wanting to pick up his tracks anymore making it stress-free for both of us.
I would definitely recommend reading “How to Raise a Happy Child” book to build a strong positive parent-child relationship.
