THE DANISH WAY OF PARENTING What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident, Capable Kids

by | Read by Kim Mai Guest

Personal Growth • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

An understated urgency gives Kim Mai Guest's performance a measure of gravitas that is not out of place with this eye-opening audiobook. Yet, aided by her pleasing tone and diction, she also sounds calm and centered as she describes the stark contrasts between Danish parenting and the overstriving practices we see in the U.S. The authors distill Danish parenting values into six principles represented by the acronym P-A-R-E-N-T: play, authenticity, reframing, empathy, no ultimatums, and togetherness. With the main author saying that she started her research because her own maternal instincts were wanting, the discussion benefits from her "beginner's mind" as well as from Guest's calm engagement. This essential parenting resource brings us back to basics without sounding simplistic or preachy. T.W. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
