    The popularity of books like this give the impression that today s American parents are willing to take advice from anyone other than their own relatives The most helpful advice the French have about child rearing is very traditional, the sorts of things people everywhere have said for generations don t pick the baby up the moment it fusses, No means no, you have to try a bite of everything, children and parents are happier when the parents are in charge Excellent advice, and worth reading if these are unfamiliar concepts to you A grandparent could give this book as a gift, and thus sneakily impart their own child rearing wisdom to the next generation.What truly interested me about this book was its insights into a monolithic culture Druckerman tells us that her French counterparts are relaxed about parenting, and it is easy to see why Unlike the USA, France does issue handbooks when babies are born There is, like so many other things in their nation, one approved way of parenting, and everyone agrees to it Child care workers, grandparents, teachers, everyone you meet on the street shares the same child rearing philosophy, so French parents have a support system which does not exis...

    The fetishization of the French or the Chinese or whatever the hot culture of the moment is bugs me, to no end I think that when you re a stranger in a strange land, as Druckerman was, you end up putting a great deal of emphasis on fitting in and behaving to the detriment of what s truly important Druckerman admits toward the end of the book, as her daughter becomes and French, that she s a bit disturbed and unsettled and not all that pleased by the results of her own French parenting Be careful what you wish for But Druckerman s upper class, wealthy French friends do some things right, which makes this book a worthwhile and very funny, well written read The problem is, they also get a lot of crucial stuff very, very wrong Unfortunately, Ms Druckerman glosses these aspects of the culture First, just about all of the good stuff of Druckerman s advice brilliantly packaged and marketed as French wisdom is common sense Let your kid experience frustration, let him wait le pause really , don t follow him around the playground like a crazed idjit, have some rules le cadre The idea that this wisdom is French is absurd Meanwhile, Druckerman doesn t have much to say about a culture that disdains breastfeeding or that demands a mother s focus and, disturbingly, her doctor s be on pleasing le monsieur the husband by losing weight tout de suite and getting mama back in working order t...

    The basis of the book has been recounted, but is worth retelling An American author finds herself in Paris because of her husband s job As she emphasizes, she is American she does not live in France because of francophilia she does not imagine that she will stay or live in France.But When she had her daughter in France, she was struck repeatedly, and at many levels at the difference between French and American children Differences in how they behave, interact with children and adults, how they play with toys She notes as have I that when she walked into the home of Americans, the house was chaotic, toys asunder, children whining, eating whatever and whenever the mothers were harried, dressed slovenly parents stressed and distant None of this was true among French families with small children Their play was quiet and creative, toys were few and neat, interactions especially with adults were polite, they ate what their parents ate and when they ate it the French women were neatly dressed, quickly obtaining their desired weight and size, maquillage applied French couples went out, and seem...

    This THIS It was such a relief to read this I ve worked with kids since 7th grade, and really want at least one of my own, but well, frankly, a lot of people make it seem like the worst thing ever Forget sleep, when you have kids Enjoy your LAST VACATION THAT S ACTUALLY FUN Good luck eating chicken fingers the rest of your life I always thought that sounded so utterly sad I, personally, always really loved hanging out with kids but had the sort of subconscious thought that maybe it wouldn t be fun any once they were my own, because I was going to become a zombie whose really nice purse was filled with Goldfish cracker crumbs and broken dreams.While I had the underlying thought that maybe it wouldn t be fun, it conflicted with the idea of, Well, maybe it could be I mean, it can t all be bad And what the author describes as the French method of parenting is pretty much word for word how I always thought I would be as a parent, particularly when discussing the magic of the word no I just never got that I never understood why parents act as though seeing their kids cry for the stupidest reasons was going to break them psychologically Granted, I have the benefit of working with toddlers and preschoolers, so I ve seen tantrums over everything under the sun, which has given m...

    I failed to appreciate much of what this book had to offer based on many poorly backed assumptions and one substantial thought flaw The author mentions that she believes the French public services don t explain the differences in parenting that she sees One could easily argue that if many American parents didn t have to worry about child care costs, preschool, college tuition or health insurance their parenting styles would be vastly different.There are far too many references to one extreme example of American parenting gone wrong and far too many examples of a few observations of French parenting gone right.I do think there is a generational phenomenon of helicopter parenting and Mommy martyrdom however, I don t think that defines America s parenting practice as a whole While I appreciate the mentioned French notion of fostering autonomy, I don t believe it was an earth shattering new parenting philosophy or approach I laughed through the explanation of fostering autonomy by allowing children one swear word, one that has been used and said by many generations caca boudin translated to caca sausage Apparent...

    It s so interesting reading this book as a non parent and as somebody who never intends to be a parent It s clear to me that most current American parents are slaves to their children in a way that my own parents were not As someone who works with the public on a daily basis in a place that caters to children families as well as adults , I m frankly appalled at some of the behaviors I see that wou...

    This book was recommended to me by a good friend.Very funny written, entertaining and good read, but not as a typical guide.Listen to your intuition and do not let the counselors influence you

    As a retired pediatrician and a grandfather, I am often intrigued by literature pertaining to child rearing, and when I read several reviews of this book and watched an interview with the author, I was especially interested in reading the book for myself Druckerman is an American, married to an Englishman, who has lived in Paris for a number of years, and she has had three children during her sojourn there When she and her husband noticed, to their chagrin, how much easier the French managed child rearing and how much better behaved, apparently happier, and flexible the French children seemed than her own and those of her American friends in both the US and France, she set out to discover why This book presents her findings and conclusions It should be noted that this is in no way a scientific study It is My Observations, Generalized Nonetheless, it is vastly entertaining, seemingly insightful, and potentially productive of causing introspection on the part of today s American parents, leading them to examine and possible modify their own ways of approaching and raising their children Much of the book makes sense to me, and it was a treat t...

    I ve purposefully shied away from so many parenting books on the bookstore shelves these days It seems like most of those geared toward pregnancy put you in a mild panic about all the things that could go wrong And the rest They induce a sense of fear, guilt and inferiority that, book lover though I am, I don t want to gravitate toward as I enjoy this stress free pregnancy of mine BUTI d heard a lot of discussion about this particular book and I have to say, if it ends up being the ONLY book on parenting I read in the lead up to my child s birth this fall, I m better off for having made the choice For some quick background, the author is an American who finds herself living with her British husband in Paris at the time of their daughter s birth Experiencing motherhood herself, Druckerman witnesses firsthand the differences in how the French families around her are raising their children and the ways in which she s drawn to the modern day, American style of parenting she s most familiar with.But that s the th...
