The runaway bestseller that shows American parents the secrets behind France’s amazingly well-behaved children
When American journalist Pamela Druckerman had a baby in Paris, she didn’t aspire to become a “French parent.” French parenting wasn’t a known thing, like French fashion, or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insisted they weren’t doing anything special. Yet, Druckerman noticed that French children often slept through the night by two or three months old. They ate well-rounded meals that were more likely to include braised leeks than chicken nuggets. And while her American friends spent their visits coping with tantrum and resolving spats between their kids, her French friends sipped coffee, while the kids played. With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman—a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal—set out to investigate. She discovered that children are capable of feats of understanding and autonomy that she’d never imagined.
Now including the wisdom and recipes from Bébé Day by Day: 100 Keys to French Parenting, this edition of Bringing Up Bébé is a must-have for parents who want to raise bright, well-mannered children while maintaining a full adult life.
