French children don't throw food

Message  MurielB le Dim 15 Jan - 21:19

I have just come across a very interesting article (Courrier international) about a book written by an american lady Pamela Druckerman : French children don't throw food.
How do the French manage to raise well-behaved children and have a life!
What British parent hasn't noticed, on visiting France, 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 mums chat to their friends while their children play quietly?
- Why are French mums more likely to be seen in skinny jeans than tracksuit bottoms?
Pamela Druckerman, who lives in Paris with three young children, has had years of observing her French friends and neighbours, and with wit and style, is ideally placed to teach us the basics of parenting a la francaise.
English mums have a different approach to education. Instead of saying "It's enough now" they ask "why do you do that ?
English expats in France are surprised to see how strict schools are. There is no room for creativity. In that sense english education develop more personal skills Wink

Hi Muriel,

Hmmmm ... I must have the only two French kids that are not compliant !

How come French babies sleep through the night ?
Why do French children happily eat what is put in front of them ?


The baby plays all night and sleeps till noon !
The 5 year old girl refuses to eat vegetables, nor ham, nor fish, nor meat ... and all she wants is pain au chocolate or sucettes !

They are both "driving me to a life of alcoholism" !!!

Hi Kystyna !
Nice to hear from you and your lovely children on this forum. The problem is that in France there's always the exception which proves the rule Wink
