A happy kid

happy kid bookKatie Hurley, a child and adolescent psychotherapist, shows parents how happiness is the key to raising confident, capable children in her new book The Happy Kid Handbook: How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressful World (Tarcher, 2015). According to Hurley, happiness is about parenting the individual, because not every child is the same, and not every child will respond to parenting the same way. By exploring the differences among introverts, extroverts, and everything in between, The Happy Kid Handbook offers parents specific strategies they need to meet their child exactly where he or she needs to be met from a social-emotional perspective. Hurley, a Boston College alumna, practices psychotherapy in Los Angeles and is a freelance writer for many online publications, including EverydayFamily, Momtastic, mom.me, Yahoo Parenting and The Huffington Post.
