Sue Baker's view...

With French women not getting fat, it seems that French children also have a thing or two to teach us. The author – an American living in Paris with her English husband is well placed to observe how children are raised in France. Why are French children, on the whole, better behaved, why do their parents have more me time and why do her own children put her to shame. Written with verve and humour, generalised, sure but there is a great deal of truth in her observations, laugh and learn, a great start to New Year parenting resolutions.

Synopsis

French Children Don't Throw Food by Pamela Druckerman

How do the French manage to raise well-behaved children and have a life! What British parent hasn't noticed, on visiting France, how well-behaved French children are - compared to our own? How come French babies sleep through the night? Why do French children happily eat what is put in front of them? How can French mums chat to their friends while their children play quietly? Why are French mums more likely to be seen in skinny jeans than tracksuit bottoms?
