“Dr. Christine Carter’s work is being practiced in a variety of contexts — therapy, learning curriculum, positive psychology research, neuropsychological research, etc. This type of thing is in its infancy and I believe it will take off soon. My hope is that the more familiar we become with these kinds of concepts, the better we will be able to integrate them on a variety of levels as these fruits of this research blossom into evidence-based programs and ideas!”

“Thank you Dr. Carter for pushing my love and excitement about parenting into the stratosphere! The research, stories, and media you presented, confirmed, without question, the importance of deliberate parenting choices for happy children and a happy family. Even days after your presentation I get choked up thinking about the joy and beauty possible in a family where happiness is the priority. Even though my daughter is only a year old, your presentation makes me excited about her future and our decision to weave your techniques into our family’s daily routines. Thank you for the inspiration and motivation!”
