Editorial Reviews

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

''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
