The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent". French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....

I enjoyed the story, i am not sure how much i can actually follow french strategies even though they sound reasonable. The book doesn't give you exact guidelines and strategies on how to apply french parenting tools but as you move from chapter to chapter you get the general idea since the writer is not an expert but only transferring to you her personal experience, well the book is not boring as most parenting books to me, i consider this a bounce!
