Disclosure: I am joyfully partnering with SoulPancake in an effort to spread happiness. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.
Remember that post I JUST wrote about how our role as a parent correlates with how our kids turn out? Do you wonder if parents and kids really understand each other? SoulPancake is back with their Science of Happiness series and asks this very question in the video, “The Secret to a Happy Family.”
Secret to a Happy Family
Do you ever think your kids can sense your emotions? I know that my kids are pretty in touch with how mom is feeling. Even our youngest, who is 4, will walk up and just offer a hug or quick kiss because she just knows. It’s amazing to see how well kids can pick up on the little things their parents dream about or even the daily struggles they face. Watch:
Wish I Was Here
You may have heard mention in the video that this particular episode was in collaboration with and inspired by the family dynamics in Zach Braff’s new movie, “Wish I Was Here.” In the movie, Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff) is a 35-year-old man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family. To go on a journey to find his purpose in life.
Personally, I have found myself right in that very spot as well. Especially when it comes to parenting. I desperately want to know that I am doing all I can to make them the best they can be. And, as my mom used to tell me, I just want them to be happy.
