The Happiest Kids in the World

Wednesday 26th of April 2017 6:00pm - 8:00pm

On Wednesday, April 26th, we have an author lecture, Q&A and book signing about The Happiest Kids in the World by Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison.

Imagine a place where young children play unsupervised, don’t do homework, have few scheduled “activities” . . . and rank #1 worldwide in happiness and education.* It’s not a fantasy — it’s the Netherlands!

In their new book “The Happiest Kids in the World: How Dutch parents help their kids (and themselves) by doing less”, Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison – an American and a Brit, respectively, both married to Dutch men and raising children in the Netherlands – give us the lowdown on the unique environment that enables the Dutch to turn out such well-adjusted, happy, and independent children. Chocolate sprinkles for breakfast? Bicycling everywhere? Whatever the secret, entire Dutch families reap the benefits, from babies to parents. As Acosta and Hutchison borrow ever-more wisdom from their Dutch neighbors, this much becomes clear: Sometimes the best thing we can do as parents is . . . less!

On Wednesday, April 26th Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison will give a lecture about their own experiences with raising kids the Dutch way. With a convincing fresh perspective, Acosta and Hutchison are our guides to the secrets behind Dutch parenting, a distinctly hands-off approach in contrast to that of many American parents. Many parents will find these ideas especially helpful at a time when American kids face enormous pressure to excel – often at the expense of their happiness (they rank 26 th out of 29 industrialized countries in the same report that deemed the Dutch #1).

The Netherland Club of NY and Dutch Culture USA invite you for this author lecture, Q&A and book signing about The Happiest Kids in the World by Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison. Dutch Culture USA will host this event and offers drinks and snacks at this reception. Books will be available for sale at the event.
