Parenting has never been the easiest job in the world, but with all the "parenting advice" out there, it's hard not to become bewildered. Today everybody has a different method for dealing with the madness. And who's to say one method is better than another? How do you choose? The truth is that whatever drumbeat you march to, all parents would agree that we just want our kids to be happy. But in the face of all the many parenting theories out there, happiness feels like it has become incidental. That's where The Happy Kid Handbook comes in. Katie Hurley shows parents how happiness is the key to raising confident, capable children.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Kate Rudd's youthful voice creates a welcoming tone in this absorbing collection of common-sense parenting wisdom. Her fresh-sounding delivery sparks curiosity and makes it easy for overworked moms and dads to take a breath and hear the author's advice with an open mind. The strength of Katie Hurley's writing is in her thinking: Instead of just providing a list of do's and don'ts, she offers an assortment of child development insights on topics like creativity, empathy, cooperation, and emotional intelligence. Her suggestions, with help from Rudd's inviting approach, bring listeners into a child's world by repeating the theme that childhood should be a happy time, a time when children can express what they feel, explore what interests them, and find fulfillment in working and playing with others.
