Bringing Up Bebe

  • NEW YORK -- So youre visiting someones home with your child and hot chocolate is served. As the hostess kids sip the delicious concoction politely and silently, your own little dear takes a gulp and promptly spits it back into the mug.
  • (Huffington Post)
  • France has been in the parenting headlines a good bit lately. First there was the release of Bringing Up Bébé, a treatise on why French kids are better eaters and sleepers, more well-mannered and less prone to meltdowns than American children.
  • (Time)
  • This engaging work of self-declared investigative parenting will strike like a stiletto heel into the quivering gelatin of middle-class parental anxiety.
  • (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
  • I have to admit I loved the snarky review in the Los Angeles Times of Bringing Up Bébé, a new book that examines why French parents are superior to Americans. We American moms get a lot of flack. We don't wear skinny jeans. We feel harried.
  • (Oregonian)
  • This is simply more than one mother can take.
  • (Salon)
  • With the new Bringing Up Bebe, a wisdom of French parenting book, and How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm, a wisdom of everywhere book, theres a sense that many little bundles of American joy are being exposed to lessons learned around the world.
  • (Chicago Tribune)
  • The idea is marvelous. Bringing Up Bebe promises to teach us how to raise the kind of perfect children produced by Tiger Mother Amy Chua without the fuss of chaining them to the piano or throwing them out of the house.
  • (Lancaster
  • Pamela Druckerman's Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting hit shelves last week.
  • (San Francisco Gate)
  • Our guest on todays show is American mom-in-Paris Pamela Druckerman. She explains what she's learned from bringing up bébé in France, and as her book title says, Why French Children Don't Throw Food.
  • (France 24)
