We all want what is best for our children. We want our kids to grow up healthy, happy, and with the opportunities we never had. For the modern parent, it’s more than just keeping them alive. We want to see our children thrive, and we’re doing all we can to make that happen. Keeping up with current theories, using the latest tips and tricks, we work like mad to make them smile. Being a stay-at-home dad I can tell you, it feels stellar when it works.
But there are also days when we do our best and every effort still feels like a failure. Don’t worry, the point of parenthood is not to make your kids happy. It is a mistake to think we can hand out happiness like we’re handing out candy. Instant gratification will never produce lasting satisfaction. The greatest lesson we can teach our children is that happiness comes from the heart. I’m no expert, but I believe our job as parents is to equip our kids to enjoy a lifetime of smiles.
If you want your kids to be happy in life, you’ll have to teach them how. This guide offers a thoughtful approach to life’s most important lessons.
