Plenty of Common Sense,

This review is from: French Children Don't Throw Food (Hardcover)
I enjoyed reading 'French Children Don't Throw food' by the American writer Pamela Druckerman, so much so that I gave the book to my daughters hoping it would help them, and I wanted to see what they thought about it too.
They liked the book as Druckerman talks of the challenges of motherhood trying to get it right, trying to teach your children how not to interrupt you when you are talking to someone, and many many more challenges that happen in the everyday life of being a mum.
However, one of my daughters thought Druckerman was a bit annoying as she constantly throws in all the research she has done, and is so keen as a mum to do the right thing and get it right with the children.
As a grandmother of six I wanted them to see how Druckerman copes with her daily life of being an American mum in Paris where she sees the French (Parisian) way of child rearing works better for Mum and all the family.
I liked the book and would recommend it.
I also bought Pamela's other book 'French Parents Don't Give In,' This is more like a reference book of the 'FCDTF' where you can look up things quickly, it's all a synopsis of her first book.
The question is how easy is it to implement all this well researched advice? Perhaps it's a mother's instinct and plenty of common sense.
