The Secret to Happy...
AND helping a child find it at any age
All we want for our kids is for them to be happy....to find happy.
I work with kids.
I love how they think and the innocence that is genuinely human.
I love that most kids can take ANYTHING and find the purpose, the good.
Our society today is tough.
There is a lot of negativity, and all we have control over is how we respond.
There are a lot of kids who struggle with school- even in preschool.
There is a lot of sadness and struggle.
I continue to learn every day despite doing this for 20 years.
I'm not saying that everything you need is on this site.
It is my clinical practice and school-based consulting firm all in one place.
This site is my attempt to reach more people, to help more kids and more families.
It is what I have put together for clients and schools but also it is a place to find more resources.
I hope some of what is here gives you a different way to see a child,
maybe even reassurance that you are not alone.
Every child is amazing- they are all here with a purpose,
but this is a journey, and we are only a guide.
To find the secret to happy we have to know about the puzzle pieces that impact behavior every day.
There are so many pieces to the puzzle of HAPPINESS and it can be hard to know where to start.
This is a start.
Whether this child is 3 or 23, your perspective is critical.
You have the ability to help this child figure out the various puzzle pieces that make up HAPPY.
It doesn't matter if you are a full-time working parent, a teacher, or a friend.
It takes ONE person to see this child differently.
There is a purpose, even some goodness, in the struggle.
If you can spin your thinking like this, you WILL find happy.
