Why Use the Happy HeART Lesson With Kids?:
When kids can identify the people, places, thoughts and things that help them to feel happy, they can access their happy feelings any time. This leads them to experience the benefits from the “feel-good” chemicals (like dopamine) that then flood their bodies and brains.
