4.0 out of 5 stars A funny (and biaised) perspective on parenting, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: French Children Don't Throw Food (Paperback)
To start with, I have no children, so for me this book was for entertainment purposes only, and not for getting any parenting tip. It did seem though, that a lot of them seemed valuable, and could be implemented quite easily by parents. I should also mention that I am from France (born and raised), and so for me, the real interest was to read about how children are being raised in the US, as I am quite familiar with how French parenting works obviously.

That being said, it was a very entertaining book ! I read it in 1 go.

I do think that the author exaggerated things. Not all parents raise their child the same way (in France or in the US). But I have traveled quite a bit, and I have to admit, British and American kids did often seem to me to have what we would consider in France, very bad manners and education. I met some horribles kids in France, and some very behaved ones in the US/UK, but overall, I always did notice a difference.
Also, do not read if you mind clichés, as you will encounter quite a lot of them in this book !

Bottom point is, it was a very entertaining book, I laughed quite a lot. If you are a parent, you might find parenting tips you would like to implement. But even if you don't, you'll have a good laugh at least! And a good laugh is always welcome.
