Does the Danish way of parenting even exist? Is it true that in Denmark children grow up to be a happier, more resilient adults?

According to the authors of the Danish way of parenting it does exist and it is  part of the Scandinavian country’s cultural fabric. It’s key is empathy and trust, not individualism and stardom. The Danes are nurturing the seeds of empathy in their children – both in schools and both in the society.

And what is the result? “People grow up to care more about others, have more trust and this creates more well-being in general.”
