October Podcast Round-up: Happiness Matters

Here is a list of Happiness Matters Podcasts you may have missed in October:

Bullies, Bystanders, and Really Kind Kids

Is your kid a bully? Even if you’ve taught your children right from wrong, sometimes the kids of kind and compassionate parents can still be…mean. Rona and I discuss strategies for raising children who don’t bully others.

Dealing with “Sass Mouth”

Rona and I take another listener questions, this time from Nina, who writes: “Do you have any tips for handling ‘back talk’ from kids? We are at our wits’ end with our 8-year-old boy and not quite sure how to respond to his words and reactions. I definitely take it personally and feel like it’s my fault he [talks back to me], but he tells me he learns these things at school. Sometimes he can be a complete angel and then other times the complete opposite.”

Keeping Kids Safe—and Happy!—on Facebook

Rona and I will talk about online safety and ways to create happiness for our children in these social networks sites.

Getting Kids to Play by Themselves

This week, Rona and I take this listener question, from Anna: “I just watched your video about kids needing unstructured playtime. I have a question about how to get my 2 yr old son to play more independently of me. He will sometimes sit and play with his toys, but not for very long. He seems to prefer us to read to him or “entertain” him in some way. How can I encourage independent, imaginative play?”
