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.

"Fascinating... gripping... extremely funny... A desperately needed corrective to received wisdom about child-rearing and what having children is supposed to do to a woman's sense of self. I loved it. It made me want to move to Paris" -- India Knight The Sunday Times "Self-deprecating, witty, informative... But however much she admires "the easy, calm authority" French parents seem to posess, will Druckerman manage it herself? Her efforts to do so add a compelling narrative to this fascinating study of French parenting" -- Michele Hanson Guardian "Observant, dryly entertaining... In recounting how her three children went native, Druckerman is engagingly self-deprecating... This book is worth its price for the crucial information it reveals about how to win the sleep wars" -- Amanda Craig Daily Mail "Fascinating and enlightening... Druckerman's observations struck me as Eureka discoveries that could improve interaction between adults and children here" The Lady "I couldn't put it down! Smart, funny, provocative, and genuinely eye-opening" -- Amy Chua, Author Of "Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mother"
