The Danish Way of Parenting: What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident Capable Kids

by Jessica Joelle Alexander and Iben Sandahl

PARENT = Play Authenticity Reframing Empathy No ultimatums Togetherness

A fun, cozy way to foster closeness - preparing meals together, playing favorite games, and sharing other family traditions: this is what the Danes call hygge. (Cell phones, bickering, and complaining are not!) Let's find out their secret.

My secret is - come even if you haven't read the book. Bring a friend or a parenting partner. First 5 people to email Ms. Merkel - hygge - will be put in a drawing to win a copy of the book.
