About the author
Pamela Druckerman is a freelance journalist on lifestyle issues married to an English football writer. They live in Paris and have three young children. She is the author of French Children Don't Throw Food and Lust in Translation. Apart from using her own first-hand observation of her French friends and neighbours, she has interviewed scores of French mothers, teachers and child experts.
The book everyone is talking about: how the French manage to raise well-behaved children, and have a life!
Who hasn’t noticed how well-behaved French children are, compared to our own?
*How come French babies sleep through the night?
*Why do French children happily eat what is put in front of them?
*How can French mothers chat to their friends while their children play quietly?
*Why are French mothers more likely to be seen in skinny jeans than tracksuit bottoms?
