A new study from the Human Flourishing Program at Harvard University has found that one’s ability to flourish in midlife – a state in which all aspects of a person’s life are good – is closely linked to parental warmth in childhood.

The findings are valuable for policy makers and public health officials, indicating that more focus on improved parenting in the home can have dramatic outcomes in the happiness and well-being of individuals in later life. View our Press Release and the Journal Article.
