Book Recommendation and Giveaway

danish3As we find ourselves in the height of the summer, I wanted to recommend a parenting book that is being released this week, 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.

If you’ve read and enjoyed my books, you’ll find this book is a goldmine filled with practical, insightful, relevant information that will support any parent looking to deepen their parenting skill set.

A few highlights include:

  • Each chapter invites the reader to examine an aspect of child-rearing. The information provided by the author impacts our ability to parent from a position of leadership, empathy, kindness, respect and open-mindedness. In doing so, small shifts can be made that influence the child and the family as a whole.
  • Tips at the end of each chapter that help anchor the information and allow you to find a nugget that resonates with you to initiate your journey.
  • Two of the most powerful chapters are on Empathy and No Ultimatums. These can be tricky areas for any parent and yet when I finished reading each chapter I felt I had gained a deeper understanding of the subject matter along with some subtle shifts I could make in my own parenting.

To create a little summer excitement, we were able to obtain a copy from the publisher for a free giveaway. Please enter in the comments why you would like to receive a free copy by the end of the day on Friday 8/5 and we’ll select a winner by random on Saturday 8/6.

If you don’t win the free copy, order the book as soon as you can. You won’t be disappointed.

    I have two young grandchildren and would be interested in this book from the perspective of a grandparent. I also work with parents from outside of USA and would be curious about what the book holds for them as they transition to raising children in the US.

    I am the mother of a 2-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl, both who are very strong willed and independent. Which is great, except that I have a very difficult time knowing how to best parent them. I’m always looking for new resources to add to my list of things to try on any given day! Thanks for the recommendation!

    If Vicki says it’s a good book, I need to read it! I continue to struggle with my own bad habits as I raise my seven year old twins and five year old. I can’t keep reading duct tape parenting…so another book would be great!
