    The Happy Child Positive Parenting app is an incredibly informative resource for those that are either expecting or currently have children, and even for those that do not have children. The lessons are not thoughtless suggestions on how to be a “better parent,” but rather offer explanations for suggested behaviors that will enrich the lives of our children and as well as the parents. People often forget that human behavior is a clash of hormones and chemicals; this app not only reminds one of their biology, it zeroes in on the specific chemicals that dominate our lives whether it’s realized or not, and advises one which chemicals to maximize and/or minimize. I do not have any children but the content of the videos are informative enough to make me aware of the impact I would have on my child. It also notes that these desired actions to increase long-term happiness are not just for the children but also have a profound affect on the parent(s). This app could be crucial for first-time parents. The app itself is laid out very neatly and is easy to navigate. I especially appreciated how the experience is customized to the user, asking if one is a parent or not. The description of the videos are clear and the questions after each video are especially helpful to ensure one truly grasps the information that is presented. I would highly recommend this app to anyone that is around children.

    I never leave reviews for anything but this app is amazing!! It provides scientific info about children's emotional and mental development that I haven't encountered in other parenting books or articles. It's extremely thorough but presents the advice in a really digestible, user-friendly format. It has 100% changed my relationship with my 2 year old. It's also improved my own emotional self-awareness and relationships w/ other adults in my life. 10/10 would recommend

    This app clearly demonstrates in a way that make it easy for me to understand what the underlying cause of behavioral issues are AND helps provide me with helpful tips/solutions to fix them. There has definitely been more of a push to focus on mental health to improve parenting and overall quality of life. But to be honest, I did not even know where to begin. These videos and lessons clearly outline what is important and how to make the necessary changes for a positive improvement. Also, I thought this would be just for kids.. but I am seeing how it is helping me. Understanding the little chemicals in our brain that makes us feel the way they do and understanding which are short term fixes VS long term fixes. I recognize that I can also use some of these tips on me. Plus, as a big bonus for me, the app is visually pleasing. The messages are clear and the videos are interesting. It holds my attention and I actually learn... rather than starting a parenting book and putting it down before I get any valuable information. Would definitely recommend to parents ... but I truly recommend this app to anyone trying to learn more about themselves and get some key tips and solutions to improve their quality of life.

    I have really enjoyed this app. It has helped me think about my child and their emotions on a whole different level, and has helped me with new ways to understand my child and how to help them know that I am there for them! Such positive vibes! Parenting is hard, and if you are struggling how to cope with your child's emotions, this app is a must. Thumbs up.

    If you are looking for an app that is easy to use, well structured, and that helps you focus on what's really important as a parent, this is the app for you. After I recently became a father, I began to search for quality resources to assist in parenting. I have a stressful job, so something that could be used easily and quickly was a must. Also, I wanted advice that had an independent explanation for why it was good. I didn't want another resource that cited itself for its suggestions. With the happy child app, every reasoning behind the advice is explained. The app never relies on itself or "well that kind of makes sense" for its sourcing. Each of the lessons I did focused on making positive relationships and environments with your kids. The lessons had concrete examples of how to do this and explanations for why this worked. Most importantly, the lessons repeatedly emphasized how important deep connections are, as opposed to just brief interactions with short-lived effects. I am definitely learning. The app is also beautifully laid out and designed. The videos and sound are professional quality. Most importantly, each lesson can be done in about five minutes. I've already learned that, when you're a parent, every second counts. If you want to focus on becoming a better parent, want solid advice and suggestions, and have limited time, this is an excellent app for you.

    Really like the lessons in this app. They're short and to the point so easy to get a grasp of. Only complaint is the formatting and typos in the transcripts. I tend to read rather than watch and it can be annoying that there are so many errors.
