Read & Download Bringing up Bébé ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read & Download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ü Pamela Druckerman The secret behind France's astonishingly well behaved childrenWhen 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 specialYet the French children Druckerman knows sleep through the night at two or three months old while those of her American friends take a year or French kids eat well rounded meals that are likely to include braised leeks than chicken nuggets And while her American friends spend their visits resolving spats between their kids her French friends sip coffee while the kids playMotherh. The popularity of books like this give the impression that today s American parents are willing to take advice from anyone other than their own relatives The most helpful advice the French have about child rearing is very traditional the sorts of things people everywhere have said for generations don t pick the baby up the moment it fusses No means no you have to try a bite of everything children and parents are happier when the parents are in charge Excellent advice and worth reading if these are unfamiliar concepts to you A grandparent could give this book as a gift and thus sneakily impart their own child rearing wisdom to the next generationWhat truly interested me about this book was its insights into a monolithic culture Druckerman tells us that her French counterparts are relaxed about parenting and it is easy to see why Unlike the USA France does issue handbooks when babies are born There is like so many other things in their nation one approved way of parenting and everyone agrees to it Child care workers grandparents teachers everyone you meet on the street shares the same child rearing philosophy so French parents have a support system which does not exist in America Imagine if everyone who came into contact with your children was going to reinforce the very same standards you were trying to teach them That alone would make parenting easier However this does not mean they are not under pressure They may accept the pressures of their society which are very different from ours but that is not the same as not feeling them For example weight control is a national obsession among the French Not having regained your figure three months after giving birth is considered shameful Literally French husbands doctors relatives friends all feel that a woman who has not lost her pregnancy weight by three months is failing her duty as a wife and woman and will tell her soGender roles are rigid in France with women accepting that they will be paid less and do child rearing housework Druckerman is impressed that despite this they complain less However her Parisian friends admit that one of the reasons they return to work so soon keep trim etc is because men leave France has divorce rates similar to the US around 50% and is much accepting of infidelity Druckerman doesn t investigate these comments but I wish she had There were just enough of them sprinkled throughout for me to wonder if the French women were not so much happy as resigned France is the only nation among 18 recently studied with depression rates higher than the USThe other main point that struck me as I read is that no matter what a parent chooses it will always be for the good of the child In France it is considered to be good for the children to enter childcare before a year old France has highly trained childcare workers It is good for them to be autonomous which translates to spending a lot of time away from their parents It is good for them to have parents who have their own lives I have never met a parent who said Well I don t think this is the best thing for my son but it is what I want so he ll have to deal with it No Nobody says that Whether we are talking about sending a child to summer camp taking a higher paying job with hours having a family game night a parent s alone time or getting or not getting a divorce we say it is for our child s benefit That the French also believe this is no surprise but neither is it proof that their practices are superior Because Druckerman is only looking at the parenting of very young children and again I think a lot of the parenting specific advice she received in France is excellent we really cannot fairly judge whether the French are wiser parents because in the end it is not about whose baby slept through the night earlier It is about the adults they become how they handle themselves in adversity and success their integrity and humility and compassion for others At least it always has been to me

It s so interesting reading this book as a non parent and as somebody who never intends to be a parent It s clear to me that most current American parents are slaves to their children in a way that my own parents were not As someone who works with the public on a daily basis in a place that caters to children families as well as adults I m frankly appalled at some of the behaviors I see that would never have been tolerated a generation ago I am aware though that it s easy to be smug and judgmental when you re not the parentguardian of a small child though

I ve purposefully shied away from so many parenting books on the bookstore shelves these days It seems like most of those geared toward pregnancy put you in a mild panic about all the things that could go wrong And the rest They induce a sense of fear guilt and inferiority that book lover though I am I don t want to gravitate toward as I enjoy this stress free pregnancy of mine BUTI d heard a lot of discussion about this particular book and I have to say if it ends up being the ONLY book on parenting I read in the lead up to my child s birth this fall I m better off for having made the choice For some uick background the author is an American who finds herself living with her British husband in Paris at the time of their daughter s birth Experiencing motherhood herself Druckerman witnesses firsthand the differences in how the French families around her are raising their children and the ways in which she s drawn to the modern day American style of parenting she s most familiar withBut that s the thing this modern version of American parenting ATTACHMENT parenting as they call it It s the antithesis of the way the French do it and I believe the way Americans USED to parent 30 to 40 years ago In short I think it s all a bit nutty I borrowed a library copy of this book but intend to purchase my own as I dog earred so many pages a guilty habit of mine that I want to review it again in full at my own leisure Some wonderful parenting concepts explored inside the book a favorite being this idea known as The Pause or letting your infant child lay in hisher crib for 5 10 minutes and fuss before stepping in to see if there is a wet diaper or empty belly as the root cause of the problem As the French have learned and Druckerman provides research to support infants need to teach themselves to fall back asleep it s a learning process But because Americans are so uick to jump in and intervene it s a key reason why they set their children up to be unable to sleep through the night at 8 9 or 10 months oldOther major takeaways touch on the emphasis the French put on establishing a cadre or framework of discipline and responsibility for their children the importance of manners it s not just please and thank you but hello and goodbye for the French instilling a child s independence ie not hovering over them on the playground and teaching them how to behave at the dinner table all the while eating food that vastly trumps our chicken tenders friendly US kids menus Some may balk at Druckerman s writing or the book s subject material but I couldn t help but fall madly in love with these concepts I ve grown SO accustomed to seeing American children be the center of their parents universe constantly interrupting them in conversations engaging their parents in their meltdowns at the dinner table that it was a refreshing change of course to read about a culture where THAT kind of behavior is abnormal A culture unafraid to teach its children patience You must teach your children frustration is a French parenting maxim that I whole heartedly endorse How little of that is happening in America these days And as a result not only do we have a nation of ill behaved kids but one for which overstressed parents are paying the priceI am so determined not to join that rat race style of parenting and so this is a book I intend to come back and consult in the years to come
