Raise kids to be strong, confident, and happy—by parenting the Australian way
It all started with risk. When Damien and his wife Diana decided to move their family in Sydney, they were confronted with new ideas, questions, and cultures—all deeply at odds with their own self-confidence and the American mindset of careful, optimized parenting. Looking to learn more, Damien went on a quest to understand his own upbringing, and why his Australian neighbors seemed happier without the urge to keep their children from tears, potential injury and failure. Eventually, he learned that risk—physical or and social—is extremely valuable. Risk is something we can get better at managing, with practice, perseverance, and community, and it's something that can help our kids grow into strong, brave, happy adults.
