Playful parenting approach helps raise smart and happy kids, two recent studies have revealed.
In one study researchers found that, when compared to a supportive style, tiger parenting give rise to children who suffer academically and emotionally, while the second one suggested that children raised by authoritarian parents struggle with depression, anxiety and social skills, the New York Daily News reported.
According to Shawn Achor, a happiness researcher, one should consider dolphin parenting instead of tiger parenting.
Anchor said that the name 'Dolphin' has been given because the water animal is playful, social and intelligent, and thereby represent the attributes of successful parenting.
In his book 'The Happiness Advantage', Achor argues that success follows happiness.
When it comes to parenting, make your child's goals seem more within reach and the negative habit harder to persist.
