Helen Russell By Simon Meyer Full Length Laughing Plus Dog

The Secrets of Parenting the World’s Happiest Children.

After a decade of living in Denmark and raising a family there, author Helen Russell noticed that Nordic children are different. They eat differently. They learn differently. And then they grow up to be some of the happiest adults on the planet. In How to Raise a Viking, Russell takes a searching look into the parenting culture of Denmark and the surprising customs that lead to such well-adjusted humans. This fascinating peek behind the cultural curtain gives readers a glimpse of another world, one where babies sleep outside in their prams when it’s -20°C and pre-schoolers wield axes.
