I just finished re-reading The Danish Way of Parenting by Jessica Joelle Alexander and Iben Sandahl. I read it initially when it was first published and my kids were one and three. Now they are five and seven and I feel like I needed the reminder. I love the chapter on the importance of play. I also love the focus on encouraging empathy when kids are upset with another friend. The chapter on connection and togetherness (hygge) was also really inspiring. It’s a pretty short, easy read. I highly recommend.
