Product Description

Expect Effort and Enjoyment, Not Perfection

Do you want to raise engaged learners — but not perfectionists — who thrive at school? Sociologist and happiness expert Dr. Christine Carter brings you the latest information in the fields of academic engagement, learning, and happiness in this Raising Happiness Homestudy Course. Help your kids realize their academic potential while leaving school stress behind.

“A huge thanks to Christine. This class has made huge differences in my family and I am so happy about it. I like how Christine often shares the challenges she has had with her own children. This made me feel like I am not alone in the challenges I face as a parent.”

– Nina, mother of two

“I know that this course is supposed to be about how we can help our kids, but I am learning so much about myself! I realize now how I was raised in a fixed mindset, and how I have really chosen a path in life where I have shied away from things that I really want to be good at it, but don’t come naturally to me.”

– Carla, mother of two, Massachusetts

This class will teach you:

  • The 5 things successful kids have in common.
  • The one research-tested sentence that changes kids’ outlook on life.
  • The difference between persistent practice and perfectionism. Perfectionism can detract from success by creating a steady state of anxiety.
  • How to praise kids so that they stay engaged. Know the difference between fixed and growth mindsets and understand why it’s important not to praise a child’s innate abilities.

Receive four full weeks of online classes, a BONUS week of additional cutting-edge material, access to the exclusive Raising Happiness Community, and even the opportunity to ask questions directly to Dr. Carter!

Learn the science of success! We’ll cover:

  • Why to embrace kids’ failures. The ability to learn and recover from failure is an essential life skill.
  • How to develop grit, an important indicator of success, in children.
  • The importance of stress management. Living in high stress environments corresponds with a poor ability to delay gratification. Wonder why your kids would prefer to watch TV or talk on the phone rather than get their work done? Help manage their stress and the results will surprise you.
