Book fifty-six: The Danish Way of Parenting by Jessica Joelle Alexander and Iben Dissing Sandahl

In a nutshell, it's all about the hygge.

A lot in this book is fairly obvious - don't beat your kids, don't lie to your kids, don't get into power struggles with your kids, don't issue ultimatums, don't be a pessimistic a--hole all the time you're with your kids.

Instead reframe the negative by trying to see the good in other people and situations, be positive, spend time together, play, employ empathy whenever possible, and praise effort over outcome.

56 down and still going strong.
