Would parents rather their children be successful or happy? Kids in the US face lots of pressure to excel -- often at the expense of happiness. But does it have to be this way? Not in the Netherlands! Expats Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison -- both married to Dutchmen and bringing up their kids in the Netherlands --examine the unique environment that enables the Dutch to turn out such well-adjusted, independent children.

Happy unpressured kids. What a concept! And they don't have sleep issues. Intense child rearing is hard on everyone. Did I say they go to sleep early and sleep through the night?
