by Maureen Healy promises to integrate “Eastern wisdom with Western psychology to keep children strong from the inside.”
Does strength equate happiness? According to Healy, self-doubt and sadness go hand in hand throughout the world.
Examining the “confidence-happiness connection”, Healy uses examples of real parents and real children facing common problems, such as bullying.
Calmness in the face of adversity…it is something my yoga teacher says when holding difficult asanas.
I love Healy’s chart of “Confidence Habits”, such as eating right and creating an uplifting community. The affirmations at the end of the book are lovely.
If you read this book, will you be guaranteed a happy child? Obviously not, but it does give parents some food for thought and ideas about how to positively support their child’s social and emotional development.
