The Key to Raising a Happy Child

“You Aren’t At The Mercy Of Your Emotions — Your Brain Creates Them”
Lisa Feldman Barrett · Neuroscientist, psychologist, author

Can you look at someone’s face and know what they’re feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway?

She shares the results of her exhaustive research — and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.
