Lessons in being happy for kids?

December 8, 2008 3:59am CST
The latest desperate method from the UK government to try and help kids damaged by poor parenting is to give them lessons in being happy. Rather than tackle the problem at source - poor parenting - the government continues to try and increase the level of brain-washing of kids. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/education/7770469.stm What do you think of this and will it help? Even for the most deprived kids?

Instead of brainwashing the kids they should start parenting lessons for the parents.

Of course there is! However, I am sure you buy newspapers and watch tv news all of which are depressingly negative. I am simply trying to highlight things that the conventional media ignore - Actually raising these issues and campaigning to overcome them makes me happy - as I enjoy helping people. You cannot chaneg thinsg idf you are not aware of the problems! Keep reading, I will also post some happy topics!
