Do French parents know best?


The book Bringing Up Bebe suggests that
French parents are superior to American parents
because their children are more well-behaved.
Do you think that we could learn from them?

I'm guessing my answer will be yes. I'm on my way over.

Ah the romance of the French lifestyle has always intrigued me. I've always gotten a sense that little French school girls and boys were meant to be seen, not heard... were meant to be overtly polite and well-mannered because that is a reflection of their parents.

I think in the USA many parents set out to raise kids who have a good self-esteem and who are rugged individualists! Perhaps that is one difference in the philosophies.
