ParentEd Talk: Raising Happy Children
Age recommendation: Adults only
Who really knows the secrets of raising happy children?
Parenting expert, researcher and author Jessica Joelle Alexander has devoted her professional life to providing culturally validated answers to this very question. In her bestselling book “The Danish Way of Parenting: What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident, Capable Kids” (co-authored with Iben Dissing Sandahl), Alexander reveals the essential parenting principles of the happiest people in the world.
For four decades in a row, Denmark was voted the happiest country in the world. According to Alexander, the reason for this is simple: “Happy kids grow up to be happy adults who raise happy kids, and so on.”
Parents everywhere can apply this successful Danish parenting playbook — referencing Alexander's easy-to-remember “PARENT” acronym — to raise well-adjusted kids: Play, Authenticity, Reframing, Empathy, No ultimatums and Togetherness.
