|title: The Danish Way of Parenting|
|tags: book nonfiction okay parenting|
|The last in the batch of parenting books that I bought, [*The Danish Way of Parenting*][book-amaz]|
|turns to Denmark as a bastion of happiness to explain why the country is so generally happy by|
|placing the blame on their unique parenting style. Obviously the authors don't claim this is the|
|only reason, but it stands to reason that a homogenous country might have developed a relatively|
|homogenous parenting style.|
|The book is quite short and easy to read. They also [have a website][danish] which has some extra|
|information related to the book. It reads as if they had something like a short pamphlet which they|
|fleshed out into a book. This isn't necessarily bad, just saying that it is not of the same caliber|
|of story or material as say [*Bringing Up Bebe*](/book/2018/06/29/bringing-up-bebe.html).|
|There is an acronym that drives this book: PARENT. Play. Authenticity. Reframing. Empathy. No|
|Ultimatums. Togetherness and Hygge. I won't recount the whole book, but I agree with most of what|
|they say and it jives pretty well with *Bringing Up Bebe* and [*The Blessing of a Skinned Knee*](/book/2018/03/22/the-blessing-of-a-skinned-knee.html).|
|It is worth reading mostly because it only takes a couple hours and the material is easy to digest|
|and see how you can implement it. I would say that this book could be expanded quite a bit and the|
|writing could be quite a bit better.|
