Family Success with The Way to Happiness Book
"I was having trouble in school and getting along with other kids. I got kicked out of one school for it. Then I read The Way to Happiness booklet. I started talking to kids instead of fighting. I could see their point of view easier than before. I made a lot more friends and kept them. It was great!" -- Scott, 10 year old
I was baby sitting today and I was playing a game with the two kids, ages 5 and 2. I was telling them a little funny story and I said something a certain way. And when I had finished the story and we were doing something else, the 2 year old was walking around saying stuff exactly the same way I was saying it.
Basically, all I'm saying is that kids copy people who are older and who they're around a lot. After a while these things work their way into patterns and habits. Sometimes this is OK, but it's not really "great". So, set a good example. I mean if you want your kid swearing and doing not OK things, that's what you want. But the kids today are the adults tomorrow, so take care of them.

I learned to help my Mom, and I learned to share. I learned that taking other people's things was wrong and I learned to share things with others. Sharing is cool!
This book is very good. I learned a lot from it. Like "Safeguard and Improve Your Environment" is very important because you can help make a better world by following that precept. This book is very useful for life.
What I learned about The Way to Happiness is that you could become a better person, also a happier person. And also make the planet safer and cleaner.
I learned not to steal people's things, not to kill people, not to punch people. And to not take other peoples' shirts. And to not put fire on in the house.
I learned how to share, and how to share with other people. I learned how to help other people and I learned how to do a job on my own because of The Way to Happiness.
I learned how to be a person, and I learned how to treat others the way they want to be treated.
I learned that I should be nice to people and not pick on them. I got that I shouldn't pick on plants and pull them out of the ground. I learned not to say bad things to people and always tell the truth. I also learned not to rip other peoples' things, not to steal other peoples' things.
I learned that you don't have to do bad things to be cool. That I should make other friends that won't get me into trouble. And no matter how far I go in life I will have enemies. Also there will be good-willed people and bad-willed people, no matter what. But I can help the wrong to do right by setting up my own organization when I get older.
I'm going to fifth grade. I enjoyed reading The Way to Happiness because it teaches me to be happy and not be bad to my family. My family is most important in my life.
Sports are important to me. I learned that drugs are no fun. If I do drugs, I can't do sports. How can I live without sports like skiing, swimming, basketball or baseball?
After reading The Way to Happiness booklet I have come to the conclusion that there are three necessary items which man must have in order to obtain happiness. These three items are a good environment, a moral and ethical code, and a feeling of self-worth.
We need to provide the love in our homes so our cherished ones won't have to go elsewhere to find it. The children are the future, but if we do not take care of them they may ruin their future. If every family in America took the time to love and help their children then maybe our future would be as bright as the shining stars.

I received the copy of The Way to Happiness and I read it with great interest. I found it to be well written. I liked the simple text. ... The book will probably cause some young folk, as well as older folk, to think and maybe change their ways. Thanks for sending me a copy. I have a young grandson whom I will pass it on to.

The Air Force District of Washington (AFDW) plays a very strong role in the fight against drugs in the National Capital Region (NCR). We have a substance abuse program that is presented in schools throughout MD, VA, and D.C.
The material in your booklets supports our efforts in providing role models, guidance, and education to our civilian and military families. The booklet covers all the important facets of life, from living with the truth to prospering. It is an excellent guide for the young and old.
Sincerely, K.B., Major, USAF
My son was a very ill-behaved child in school and at home, and was getting very bad grades. The school psychiatrist put him on Ritalin. He never got better and never felt well from the drug. Then one day I found a The Way To Happiness booklet at a flea market. I read it and loved it. My son loved it, also, and started reading it every day. To make a long story short, my son is now 12 years old and through reading the book he decided that he was worth very much as a human being and didn't need a drug to be good. We got the doctor to wean him off Ritalin successfully. He is now very well behaved, loves life and is getting As and Bs in school. He attributes it all to The Way to Happiness.

I know that the common-sense guidance from The Way to Happiness has provided my children with a way to handle peer pressure and other negative influences they have come in contact with. I have observed the effectiveness of the book's messages and am so happy that I have found such a practical guide that I can use.
My cousin and I were very close when I was a teenager. But she was murdered by a drug pusher. If I'd known about The Way to Happiness then, Phyllis would still be alive. While it's too late to bring her back, I know there are a lot of other Phyllis's out there. Don't wait until it's too late to help the people you love. I've seen this book turn lives around. It works!
Today I told my kids about the essay contest. They are really excited about it! The kids really enjoy The Way to Happiness time that I do with them at the end of the day. It is a great sane way to end a crazy day.
As I read through parts of your book, I was struck by the message of honesty. I believe it is an important message for the children of today, as well as the idea of learning by lessons of the previous generation. Again, thank you for the book. And good luck in your campaign. I look forward to working with you.
Sincerely, J. O.
Kids and parents need to work together with this booklet as it backs up a lot of things we are trying to teach them at home.
