A Simple Formula for Raising Happy Children By Roger E. Herst Review
Want your kids to be happy? If you’re like most parents, it’s your most fervent wish. But is this just a pipe dream? Or is happiness more substantive? Is it possible that parents can actually do something constructive to create happy children?
Roger E. Herst, author of “A Simple Formula for Raising Happy Children”, is an ordained Reform rabbi with MBA and doctorate degrees. A father and grandfather, Herst regularly engages with parents in the form of Platonic dialogue – a cooperative Q-&-A approach meant to stimulate critical thinking – to yield logic-based solutions for raising happy children.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- While I find the tips or steps in this book to be great, I also feel that not everyone is going to be able to implement them in the same way and so this is great for a thought provoking few moments of the day. I think the author is truthful and states what he feels to be the right ways of parenting. Unfortunately not everything that occurs to or with your child can be pointed back to the parent. So to be clear I find that this book is helpful to an extent but should not be used to cause dramatic change or point blame.
