The Danish Way of Parenting

What can we learn from the happiest people in the world for over 40 years in a row? The secret is in the way they parent. We will be examining our default settings: why we believe what we do about “the right way” to parent and then explore seeing the world through new lenses. Is there anything we might consider doing differently?

Anyone can benefit from this course-parents, teachers, people who work with children and really anyone interested in a philosophy of living that has been proven to improve wellbeing-even non-parents.

The main topics we will cover are:

N-No Ultimatums
T-Togetherness and Hygge


  • CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION with 3.0 instructional hours & successful completion of a short quiz.
  • RESOURCESAccess to several mental health and parenting resources.
  • SUPPORT:​ Access to the institute should any questions arise.
