Building happier kids : stress-busting tools for parents / Hansa Bhargava, MD, FAAP.

Bhargava, Hansa, (author.).


Kids today are facing unprecedented pressures--and their mental health is suffering. As a parent, you may feel burned out and exhausted yourself--and perhaps overwhelmed by the idea of taking on your child's stress. But Building Happier Kids offers practical, concrete steps you can take to help your kids and yourself! Dr. Bhargava prescribes taking an intentional pause from modern life's nonstop pace to focus on ways you can meaningfully impact your family's emotional well-being. Overscheduling, homework, and ever-present electronic devices may make these seem easier said than done, but Dr. Bhargava offers realistic, balanced advice that will help you prioritize health and restore the happiness of childhood.
