Episode Info:

Fireborn’s podcast, The Happy Student, is based on the assumption that we all want our kids to have a happy academic and social life and yet we’ve never specifically talked about happiness – what it is and how to get it. When we talk about “happy” often people think about those fleeting really joyful, blissful moments when people tend to think, “Wow. I’m really happy.” Those moments are fantastic and we definitely want our kids to have lots of those, but what we really mean at Fireborn is something much more lasting. Joy and pleasure are momentary feelings and we want our kids to have an overall feeling of well-being and satisfaction. It’s a generally positive experience of life where our kids feels like they’re flourishing, fulfilling their potential and thriving.
