(The goal of psychiatrists in treating patients of any age is happiness.)

Happiness is mental healthiness. 

People who feel a need to go to a counselor for help are feeling unhappy instead of happy with life. Peace will prevail more if more parents realize their importance and the importance of kindness.

Consider this, For the past several years in this country, there have been horrible mass murders: Orlando nightclub, Las Vegas, Florida school, Texas school, Indiana school. Each time, shortly after, a tv announcer says something like, “We do not yet know the cause of the mass murders” A day or so later, we hear that the murderer had some mental problems. Didn’t we know that? 

The cause of mass murders is the murderer is unhappy.

Why are some people happy and some are not?
1. The formative years of life are called formative because they are formative. 
2. In those years, the main influence is the  parent. 
3 . The parent can be kind to the child, always. 

Why are Some People Unhappy and Some are Happy?

 Responding to Probable Thoughts from Readers !!


But Isn't it just genes??

New scientific research has shown that even genes can be changed
if there is physical or emotional abuse to a young child, so...
... the formative years matter.


                   But that grandmother was who spent most time with the child in those early years,
or that little baby and toddler was taken to that day care place
 almost every day ... so the parent did not matter that much?

Who made the decision
to have the grandparent be with the baby
or who decided to take him or her to a daycare place
and which one?
...who else but the parent? 
In the beginning, the main influence, either directly or indirectly, is the parent.m

But a parent needs to discipline the child?

We know that to discipline means to teach.  Surely we all realize that a child can be taught better with words instead of hitting, with kindness instead of meanness. 

  • The parent can talk and listen, always being open to discuss
  • The parent can be honest 
  • The parent can answer every single question
  • T he parent can teach by communicating instead of by punishing
  • The parent can be on the child's side instead of an opposite side
  • The parent can enjoy helping the child appreciate life
  • The parent can smile with the child

    Always treating the child with kindness and honesty and openness, while helping the child learn about life, is an easy and wonderful thing to do.  That kind and happy child is likely to be caring about others .
