Words of praise for Dr. Christine Carter.



Thank you very much for you regular Happiness Tips emails – they are wonderful! Life can be so busy for us all, and it’s very important for each of us to be grateful and to focus on positive aspects of our life instead of the all too easy negative occurrences.Mark

Raising Happiness transformed me and my family. It’s the only parenting book that I refer to time after time — and I’m a book worm. The small changes we’ve made have been fabulous (profound) for me and my husband.Caroline

I am still hearing positive feedback from moms and dads about ways they are trying to make gratitude a more intentional part of their lives.John Weems

Since giving birth to our first daughter my wife has brought home a trove of books, videos and pamphlets purporting to help me be a better parent. None were worthy of my time nor space on my bookshelf until Christine Carter. She is smart, witty and real. And she knows her stuff. Her tips and practices not only help me be a better parent but a happier person too. And a happier Daddy makes for a happier family. Trust me.Robert

My wife and I have been putting your advice into practice, and it is making a difference by giving us confidence and helping our kids.Erik & Natalie
