"While reading adults may even pick up some tips about how to maximise happiness in their own lives, whether it’s leading by example and showing gratitude or kindness, or making your own happiness box or playlist."
Whether you’re a teacher, parent or close relative, find tips and tricks to ensure the children around you grow up resilient and happy. And maybe learn a few things yourself along the way. Jennie Segar is a mother and has worked as a nanny, governess, tutor primary, secondary and peripatetic teacher. Her experience working with children in home and school environments led her to write the book she couldn’t find on the shelves - something with comprehensive techniques and supported by scientific research to help build on her child’s strengths, build emotional understanding and resilience and maximise their happiness. The dedication and research that has gone into ‘Maximise your Child’s Happiness’ shines through, with consistent reference to scientific studies as well as personal anecdotes to explain and contextualise each point. Broken up into three sections that spell out “HUG” , Jennie Segar focuses on highlighting your child’s strengths, understanding difficult topics and gathering your happiness. These three clear sections are then broken up into a range of different topics with background when needed and examples of different actions that can be employed and maintained in the long term. The structure of ‘Maximise your Child’s Happiness’ is really easy to navigate, the arguments and activities are easy to understand and follow. Although the book is aimed mainly at parents I think it could also be useful for anyone who works with children or has them in their close family. While reading adults may even pick up some tips about how to maximise happiness in their own lives, whether it’s leading by example and showing gratitude or kindness, or making your own happiness box or playlist.
