Sooo.... it's possible it took me about a year to read this, but that's more to do with my short attention span than the book itself. I've read quite a few research articles about why the Danes (and the Scandinavians) are the happiest people on earth- and you know it's not because they're getting...

Overall, the message was good, but this is less of a guide and more of a collection of anecdotal evidenced tied loosely together by some non-comprehensive research. I found some of the book patronizing and other parts oversimplified. Yes, it is easy and great to parent "The Danish Way" i...

As an American who has lived in Denmark for 15 years and is married to a Dane with h whom I have a child, I recognize a lot of these behaviors. Nevertheless, it was nice to have them systematically spelled out and there were some insights that I was also unaware of. But, I can also say that while...

كيف يربي الدنماركيين - الشعب الأكثر سعادة في العالم- أبناءهم؟
وهنا طرحت في مدونتي سؤالاً من زاويتي: لماذا لا تنتهي قصص الأطفال نهايات سعيدة؟
يقول الكاتبين أن أحد أشهر كُتاب قصص الأطفال في العالم الدنماركي Hans christian Andersen والذي كتب «ماريميد الصغيرة» و«ملكة الثلج» لم يتعمد في معظم قصصه أ...

Meh. Regurgitates lots of the modern and en vogue research on parenting and very loosely ties it to Danish cultural norms. I think both are interesting, but didn't find a very compelling reasons for them to necessarily be linked together.

What makes the Danes so happy? They are raised to cultivate a mindset that allows them to be resilient, patient, and compassionate. I especially like the chapters on learning to re-frame situations and practicing cozy family togetherness.
This is a thought-provoking book that could be helpful for...

Not exactly ground breaking content, but the book emphasizes the best in practical positive parenting strategies and ways of living. It is a quick read with simplified summaries with suggestions on application at the end of every chapter.
I was particularly fond of the chapter on "togetherness an...

I really appreciated this book. As I Christian, I would disagree with the author philosophically that all children are basically good; however this did not mar my appreciation of the book, nor did it influence my opinion of the usefulness of its principles. The book was broken down into six-parts...
