'An eye-opening and badly-needed dose of perspective. In my next life, I want to be Dutch.' - Pamela Druckerman, author of French Children Don't Throw Food<?em> Why do Dutch babies seem so content, and sleep so well? Why do Dutch parents let their kids play outside on their own? Why do the Dutch trust their children to cycle to school? Why do Dutch schools not set homework for the under-tens? Why do Dutch teenagers not rebel and what is the secret of bringing up the happiest kids in the world? In a recent UNICEF study of child well-being, Dutch children came out on top as the happiest all-round. Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison, both married to Dutchmen and bringing up their kids in Holland, examine the unique environment that enables the Dutch to turn out such contented, well-adjusted and healthy babies, children and teens. Read this book if you want to find out what lessons you can learn from Dutch parents, to ensure your kids turn out happy!
