One goal of every parent is to raise a happy child who'll eventually develop into a happy adult.

Happy people work harder, thrive socially and – most of the time – achieve more. Children are also faster at learning and performing mental tasks when they’re happy.

Making sure your children develop into balanced adults can benefit society as a whole, and a good parent can do a lot to help their child flourish.
