How to Raise a Happy Child (and Be Happy Too): Book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Every parent wants the best for their child(ren); I know for Goose, I want her to grow up knowing that she is and will be forever loved.  Not every parent knows how to reach that goal for their child(ren).  With "How to Raisy a Happy Child (and Be Happy Too), the authors Heather Criswell and Taryn Voget really offer some great suggestions on how to really make your relationship with your child(ren) great.  

Each chapter of "How to Raise a Happy Child (and be happy too)" starts off with Heather sharing her experiences as a mother, a foster mother, and a child care center teacher and owner. Then at the end of the chapter/section Tayrn follows up and kind of sums everything up so it's easy to understand.  All of the chapters end with a QR code that you can scan with your smart phone.  These codes will take you to how-to parenting videos.  

At the end of the book, Heather offers some scenarios of how to talk to children in a way that they can understand.  She even talks about how to deal with a child finding out about Santa Claus.  

Goose can be a very strong willed child, and to some she may appear to be bratty or spoiled.  With this book I am learning to do away with those labels, and learning how to listen to her better (even when she is definitely not listening to me).  

I think this book is a really great resource, and I plan on keeping it around for a reference guide for a long time.
