Raising children and how to do it correctly?
Bringing up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting
By: Pamela Druckman
3 out of 5 stars
This is the story of an American Mother raising her children in Paris and how she discovers the difference in the philosophy of parenting. After reading the novel, I feel that one method is not necessarily better than the other; rather the best way is a combination of the two. The French have several beliefs that I would have loved to have known when my child was a little one. Although in same ways I figured these out myself and actually followed them; so I may have made some good choices. My only complaint about the style of writing was that Pamela often repeats herself other than that I would recommend this book to all mothers of newborns. I may start making this book a gift to all the new mothers I know.
This is her sixth book and follows her journey of being an American living in Paris. Her website is www.pameladruckman.com.
