At long last, we finally have a French response to the truth about superior French parenting. Anyone who’s been following my blog knows that I cannot stand all this trashing of American parenting. You also know that I grew up overseas, with quite a bit of time in Europe, and was eagerly calling bullshit on Druckerman’s assertions about all that is superior in French parenting.
Now, here we have, some perspective from France that balances out all this nonsense and is so interesting – both on how the French treat their children, why their children might have fewer tantrums than ours, and more about the French education system. In short, the writer immediately notes he’d rather set himself on fire than send his own children to French schools.
If you got caught up in the tidal wave that was all things wrong about how we parent in the the US…..I hope you’ll read this other perspective. And, because he teases us in the piece, I had to click on the blog the author links too written by an American woman raising her kids in France and her observations about Druckerman’s book…and it is as interesting as he sells it to be.
Sorry this piece is short today, more tomorrow, and in the meantime, beware the Ides of March, and for more of Moi, don’t forget to “Like” the Wired Momma FB page…
