PAMELA DRUCKERMAN

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8; 7 PM
PAMELA DRUCKERMAN
will discuss her book, Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting. When Druckerman, an American journalist, had a baby in Paris, she didn’t aspire to become a ‘French parent.” But she noticed that French children slept through the night by two or three months old, were good and varied eaters, well-behaved, and independent. She found that French parents are extremely strict about some things and strikingly permissive about others. The result is children who are just as boisterous, curious, and creative as Americans but far better behaved and more in command of themselves. This book strikes a happy medium between the French way and her own parenting preferences, offering 100 French parenting tips and recipes for the whole family. It is deeply wise and charmingly told.
