A look into french parenting style,

This review is from: French Children Don't Throw Food (Hardcover)
If your looking for a mummy story-parenting challenges-advice-tips but not a textbook, then this is a book for you. Its an easy read where the author explains her experiences about raising a family in Paris. The author has done an excellent job in analysing the French parenting style and comparing it to British/American styles. I've used some of what I've learn't in practice and its worked wonders on my 2 1/2 year old. A lot of it is common sense but sometimes that just goes out the window when you become a mum! After reading this book I see my toddler in a different light so to speak. And I'm enjoying being a parent more. I have read about a million different British parenting books and none of the techniques really helped. This book has hit the nail on the head. I'm not running around my toddler all day, trying to trick her into eat her vegetables, or hoping that she achieves her next milestone before her age etc. She's calmer and as a result so am I. So if you wish to bring some sanity into your insane world give this book a read.
