Raising Happiness: How to raise kids who are grateful, gritty, and successful 

Tuesday, January 28th at 7pm at Del Mar Middle School Gym, Tiburon

(Admission is free but limited.)


Drawing on what psychology, sociology, and neuroscience have shown about confidence, gratitude, and grit – and using her own chaotic and often hilarious real-world adventures to demonstrate dos and don’ts in action – Christine Carter, PhD, gives parents and teachers practical tips for creating families, schools, and communities that nurture happy children.

She’ll discuss:

  • The relationship between grit, perfectionism, and elite performance.
  • Why our beliefs about why we are successful (or not) predict how well we fare in the face of adversity.
  • How to foster gratitude in kids for all they have, and help them combat feelings of entitlement, self-centeredness, and anxiety.

Christine Carter, PhD will help you learn how to raise children’s emotional intelligence — and their happiness, of course! — and help them grow into joyful and successful adults.


Dr. Carter is the author of "Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents."  She is also a faculty affiliate and science writer at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley.  She has helped thousands of people find more joy in their lives through her books, online classes, coaching, and speaking engagements. She teaches happiness classes online throughout the year to a global audience on her website www.christinecarter.com. Also available are local Raising Happiness Discussion Groups facilitated by Tamazin Heher, MSW. See www.zinheher.com for more details.
