The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children is here. When 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 special. But French children are far better behaved and more in command of themselves than American kids....
What made the experience of listening to Bringing Up Bebe the most enjoyable?
the story telling was nice and very attractive and not boring at all. but actually not all advises about kids are doable as not all kids are the same, and we can't apply it due to the difference between all countries and France ! :) and there is a culture difference too, but honesty speaking, there are so valuable information in the book that we can take the benefit of it
Who was your favorite character and why?
the french woman :)
Have you listened to any of Abby Craden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
no, it was the first time
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, but it was too long to finish in one sitting, as I'm a working mother, it makes me feel that being a working mother is a good them, and reduce feeling guilty way more. and made me feel good about myself, made me that I have to focus on myself in order to be a good mother, and I shouldn't let my kid control my universe, and I should make my universe as I wanted to be. good tips about Adult time :)
I was listening to the book while driving to my work, or on my way back, or when I go to make padi/mani :) great book, I really recommend it
You knew the terrible twos were coming. You were warned. But now they're here, along with questions you never thought to ask. Why won't he go to sleep? Where should she sleep? How long can you be away without causing permanent trauma? Who should care for your tot if you can't be there? Believe it or not, there are answers, and with a little humor, plenty of understanding, and 50 years' experience, eminent authority in the field of development, child psychiatrist, and master clinician Cal Colarusso, M.D. will ease your mind.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The book is addressing very basic info and with no solutions options or much info that parents should know ! it didn't really add much and the book was very short, and it was hard for the writer to focus on one point and give enough info about every phase or specific development area ! very generic book ! I wouldn't recommend
Would you be willing to try another book from Calvin Colarusso? Why or why not?
No ! I didn't feel he aded much to my knowledge , I wish if he could introduce much more info in the book in every development area
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I barely remember what he said ! I didn't influence or inspire me or my husband at all.
