You could be forgiven for thinking that our nation’s happiness and wellbeing levels are at an all-time low. Heart-breaking suicide statistics … high rates of depression and anxiety … and excessive levels of domestic violence paint a grim picture of a country that, for the most part, has so much going for it.
But, thankfully, all is not lost! And according to Nathan Wallis, a renowned neuroscience educator, author and expert in child development, our children play a key role in boosting New Zealand’s wellbeing.
His new book Nurture – the Art of Parenting (co-authored with Peter Alsop) – has just been released, and contains a unique collection of parenting ideas interwoven with key virtues for living a great life. Beautifully illustrated, it’s a book that embraces the timeless truth: it takes a village to raise great children.
Nurture invites us all to lead the way to a community – and a country – of new possibilities.
