Raising Happy Kids

Posted by drewbendon on October 16, 2007

Piedmont parents Christine Carter McLaughlin and Kelly Corrigan together write the blog Half Full where they discuss the Science of Raising Happy Kids. Right now they’re featuring a video blogging project which Christine describes as being “born out of interest by parents who kept saying to me, ‘tell me again about that research — what kinds of praise helps kids embrace challenges? Do we have to eat dinner together every night? etc.'”

Christine is the Executive Director of the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley, “an interdisciplinary research center devoted to the scientific understanding of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior.”

Kelly is a newspaper columnist for the Piedmonter and the author of The Middle Place.
