We know from experience that happy children are healthier, learn better, display more emotional literacy, and are better behaved. But to talk about happiness in education is somehow “soft,” and instead we talk about emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and anger management. We should seriously consider the happiness of our children in the learning process and link the concept to health, well-being, and to the empowerment of our children and young people.
