He addressed Parents on Positive Parenting on Tuesday 17th December at 7.30pm. New scientific research reveals that happiness is a learned skill and that parenting styles and practices have a tremendous effect on children’s emotional outlook on life. By promoting some basic positive traits and harnessing their inner strengths, children can be encouraged to have a more positive view of self, others and the world.
