Product description

Review

“Stressing less and relaxing more as the recipe for happy children? It might be time we all ‘go Dutch.’”—Today.com

“The key to raising happy kids? . . . Do as the Dutch do.”—Washington Post

“Are you already frantically looking up immigration information, and figuring out how soon you can get a plane ticket to The Netherlands to look at houses? Me too. . . . The spirit of Dutch living is something we can certainly all look to for inspiration.”—Babble

“A must-read for all parents looking to adopt a more relaxed parenting style and create a less stressful environment for their children.”—Library Journal

“American parents exhausted by the pressures and expectations of parenting will appreciate this refreshing look at how another culture handles the same issues.”—Publishers Weekly

“Clear and concise . . . this is one of the most convincing parenting books to come across my desk in the last year.”—Sunday Times

“An eye-opening and badly-needed dose of perspective. In my next life, I want to be Dutch.”
Pamela Druckerman, author of Bringing Up Bébé (French Children Don’t Throw Food)

“I’m done having babies, but this book made me (almost) want to have one more, just so I can raise it the Dutch way!”—Jen Mann, New York Times–bestselling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat

“A fascinating book—one I wish I had read sooner! In fact, the more I read the more I became tempted to move our entire family to the Netherlands . . .”
Sarah Turner, author of The Unmumsy Mum

“What a joy to discover that the eternal secret to happy kids just might stem from routine, family time, independence, reasonable expectations—and chocolate sprinkles.”—New York Post
