Growing Happy Kids (Guest: Maureen Healy)

The first question asked in this interview is, “How would most folks describe a happy child, and would that description be accurate?” It’s an interesting and compelling question.

Our guest on this program, Maureen Healy, will not only answer this question and others, she will share with us the critical characteristic that contribute most to happiness today in our children and teens: CONFIDENCE. She will also share how there is both “outer” and “inner” confidence.

If we use the ideas presented in this program to foster and cultivate more confidence in our young people, the results definitely will pay off for many years to come.

Maureen is an emotional health expert with more than 20 years of experience gained in studying children and their families all over the world. She’s the author of the just-released book, Growing Happy Kids: How to Foster Inner Confidence, Success and Happiness, and she writes for many popular publications and blogs, including Psychology Today, WebMD and Huffington Post.
