If you are like most parents you have a clear purpose: you want your children to be happy, healthy and successful! Most parents do everything they can, they want everything to be perfect and they put a lot of energy, effort and especially money to reach this goal: A clean house, healthy food, good education, plenty of career opportunities, language skills, international experience. They want to open the doors of possibilities to their child’s feet! What’s about you? Do you also work hard, doing everything for your child’s wellbeing: regular family vacation, a nice house with garden, maybe even a pool, the best school!

If you want to raise happy, healthy & successful children, don’t keep your focus only on material matters
Well, material safety is important for our children and helping them to find out what they are best in, too. It is important to fulfill our children’s basic needs.
So what? You are wondering what you could do more to guarantee your child’s happiness? My words created some slight doubts. Is there anything more you can do? Well, the thing is, if your child will be happy, healthy and successful in life or not will depend much more on your education style than on your financial spending and career opportunities you provide to your child. Depending on which parenting style you adopt you will either raise children that are happy, healthy and successful in life or children who will struggle, suffer form personality disorder and fail.
Many parents have the best interest, put a lot of money in raising their children, but fail in their project of raising happy, healthy and successful children. They don’t know which skills they need to succeed in their parenting adventure. Most parents do the same thing their parents did with them and are sometimes even not aware about harmful behavior. If your parents’ focus was on material things and this was their way to show love to you, you might do the same. Many parents reward their children when they do great and punish their children when they do not obey by giving money or taking toys away. They buy them toys or allow the grandparents to buy toys to make them (the child and the grandparents) happy and to still bad feelings. They fulfill every single wish. You want your child to be happy. What most parents don’t know: all this will be no guaranty that their children will be happy, healthy & successful in life, neither at work nor in private life. In order to raise happy, healthy & successful children, you need to change your behavior.
