Denmark has been voted as one of the happiest countries in the world for over 40 years in a row. Countless articles and studies have been devoted to discovering the reasons why. But the results are always unclear. In this groundbreaking book, American author and Danish psychotherapjst, Alexander and Sandahl claim to have uncovered the real secret to the Danes happiness. And it is, quite simply, in their upbringing. Danish parents raise happy children who grow up to be happy adults who raise happy children and the cycle repeats itself.
The Danish Way of Parenting takes a fascinating look at some of the differences between American and Danish parenting styles and explains why the Danish Way has been so effective in creating happier, more resilient people for so many years. Alexander and Sandahl ask the reader to remove their “cultural glasses” for a moment and try on a “Danish way” of seeing things and then take a look at the world around them. Can anyone improve their wellbeing and cultivate the happiest children in the world in their own backyard? The answer is yes!
