Title Profile & Character Information

Bringing up Bébé

Annotation
After moving to Paris and having a baby, former Wall Street Journal reporter Druckerman noticed that French women just weren't that uptight about child-rearing issues. Meanwhile, French children turned out to be well behaved but hardly repressed. Druckerman investigated and discovered that French parents are in some ways deeply strict and in some ways surprisingly permissive-no beat-the-odds enrichment classes at age three. Never mind French women staying chic or not getting fat, this is a really -important work.
