  • Summary

  • What every parent wants most is for their children to grow into happy, healthy humans, which sounds pretty simple, but the reality is that there’s an epidemic of mental ill-health among adolescents and adults. There is no one perfect way to be a parent, but there are steps that you can put in place to create young people who know how to make the most out of their lives. Dr Tim Sharp, Dr Happy, introduces you to the simple daily habits that will help you create an environment that fosters growth and happiness for you and your kids.

    Dr Tim Sharp is a clinical and consulting psychologist with three degrees in psychology and a distinguished career over several decades. He’s Australia’s very own 'Dr Happy' and the founder of The Happiness Institute.

Didn’t Expect to Learn As Much As I Did

Dr. Sharp’s recommendations were presented logically, so while many of them were “common sense” ideas, he worded them in such a way that created epiphanies. I especially enjoyed hearing his solutions to every day issues.

laughable

This was the most ridiculous explanation of sex and relationships I've ever heard. The narrator didn't help.
