“Marvelous . . . Like Julia Child, who translated the secrets of French cuisine, Druckerman has investigated and distilled the essentials of French child-rearing. . . . Druckerman provides fascinating details about French sleep training, feeding schedules and family rituals. But her book's real pleasures spring from her funny, self-deprecating stories. Like the principles she examines, Druckerman isn't doctrinaire.”

Bringing Up Bébé is a must-read for parents who would like their children to eat more than white pasta and chicken fingers.”

(Fox News)

“On questions of how to live, the French never disappoint. . . . Maybe it all starts with childhood. That is the conclusion that readers may draw from Bringing Up Bébé.”

(The Wall Street Journal)

“French women don't have little bags of emergency Cheerios spilling all over their Louis Vuitton handbags. They also, Druckerman notes, wear skinny jeans instead of sweatpants.The world arguably needs more kids who don't throw food.”

(Chicago Tribune)

“I’ve been a parent now for more than eight years, and—confession—I’ve never actually made it all the way through a parenting book. But I found Bringing Up Bébé to be irresistible."



The secret behind France's astonishingly well-behaved children.

When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent." French parenting isn't a known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special.

Yet, the French children Druckerman knows sleep through the night at two or three months old while those of her American friends take a year or more. French kids eat well-rounded meals that are more likely to include braised leeks than chicken nuggets. And while her American friends spend their visits resolving spats between their kids, her French friends sip coffee while the kids play.

Motherhood itself is a whole different experience in France. There's no role model, as there is in America, for the harried new mom with no life of her own. French mothers assume that even good parents aren't at the constant service of their children and that there's no need to feel guilty about this. They have an easy, calm authority with their kids that Druckerman can only envy.

Of course, French parenting wouldn't be worth talking about if it produced robotic, joyless children. In fact, French kids are just as boisterous, curious, and creative as Americans. They're just far better behaved and more in command of themselves. While some American toddlers are getting Mandarin tutors and preliteracy training, French kids are- by design-toddling around and discovering the world at their own pace.

With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman-a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal-sets out to learn the secrets to raising a society of good little sleepers, gourmet eaters, and reasonably relaxed parents. She discovers that French parents are extremely strict about some things and strikingly permissive about others. And she realizes that to be a different kind of parent, you don't just need a different parenting philosophy. You need a very different view of what a child actually is.

While finding her own firm non, Druckerman discovers that children-including her own-are capable of feats she'd never imagined.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very entertaining 1. September 2012
Von sydney
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Even if you are neither American nor French, I think the book is good fun to read and contains a couple of valuable hints. It is not a "do this and you will get a perfect child" kind of books. Since the author used to be a journalist, the book reads more like a very long newspaper article than a parenting book. If you have a problem with your child and you are looking for advice on a specific topic (sleeping, eating etc.), it is probably not the best choice. It is too generic for that. If you are looking for something that may make you see certain things from a different perspective and that is fun to read, here you go. For me, the book once again confirmed my view that bringing up children can be done in many different ways, and what is considered totally unacceptable in one country can be perfectly normal in another.
The only thing I did not like about the book was that the author is a bit too "pro French" and never seriously questions anything about the French parenting style - it is only when she talks about breastfeeding that one can feel that she does not really agree. Apart from that, it always sounds like the French have found the perfect solution, so if you do like them, you will be happy and so will your children. Of course, in reality, it is not as easy as that. French women pay a high price for being mothers, full time businesswomen, sexy wives and household managers at the same time. The fact that the women the author met are not complaining about this does not make it less challenging.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, informative and light-hearted 25. September 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I REALLY enjoyed reading this book. It's written in a light-hearted, often self-deprecating way, but it's full of humour and useful information about child rearing! My daughter is 15 months old but I've picked up a lot of tips that I can still try to implement with her, and will definitely try "The Pause" with the next baby. Coming from NZ, having lived in different countries and now living in Germany, I feel like I don't really have one set view on how to raise my children - except that they should be well-behaved! I therefore found a lot of how the French raise their kids to be in line with what I believe, and found it useful to read practical information about how certain behaviours are instilled in their children.

I think as with any book, you can take away what you will. Noone's forcing you to agree with everything the author's saying, and at the end you can choose whether you'd like to try and adopt some of the tips that she suggests or not (although I liked and agreed with a lot of what I read, there were definitely some things that I didn't agree with). One thing that I really identified with is letting babies and children just be children, and learning and exploring the world for themselves (this French belief in "awakening"). I'm not so familiar with this whole "Einstein Baby" DVD - but just the name makes me laugh. I mean, Einstein grew up without all of these programs, learning and developmental games, and DVDs - and he turned out just fine! I believe that each child inherently has certain skills and talents, and yes, it's up to the parents to recognise and help develop these skills further. But I'm also wary of engendering any sort of panic in parents if they're not shoving these sorts of gimmicks down their kids' throats from an early age.

As a French person I am pleased to see that the education I received and am also giving my daughter seems to make sense. But I am also married to an American and I can guarantee that not all Americans raise their kids as is described in this book. My husband doesn't. He must have some French genes!
The book is written with a mix of naive observation and scientific references. A strange style at first but very accessible. A relaxing read, with some good ideas to implement in everyday life, a few funny scenes and above all some really sharp language observations... Enjoy!

Von Sophie W.
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Habe mir ärgerlicherweise beide Bücher bestellt und erst nach der Rücksendefrist festgestellt, dass der Inhalt identisch ist.Bei zwei unterschiedlichen englischen Titeln hatte ich das nicht erwartet.
Lesenswert, wenngleich kein wissenschaftliches Werk, aber diesen Anspruch erhebt es ja auch nicht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A nice break from all the usual parenting books 23. Mai 2012
Von Glamazone
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought is book when my daughter was 5 month old. I wish I had read it before. Not only is it quite entertaining, but it is also different from your usual parenting books. The author describes her experiences and quite meticulously analyses what appears to be making the difference between French and American parenting. It is quite refreshing to read a book that does not tell you what to do and what not or just one that gives you all the theories, but then leaves out any practical advise.

The author is describing her experiences bringing up her own 3 children whilst analysing what she did, what French parents would have done different and which things she found very helpful in France or in French parenting. If you are looking for some really good and practical advice it is there for you, but the book is not patronising in any way or suggesting that there is a 'one fits all solution'. It helped me find a way to get my daughter to sleep through the nights in less than a week and I will be forever thankful for it.

 (Was ist das?)
One rule on the handout was that parents should not hold, rock, or nurse a baby to sleep in the evenings, in order to help him learn the difference between day and night. Another instruction for week-old babies was that if they cried between midnight and five A.M., parents should reswaddle, pat, rediaper, or walk the baby around, but that the mother should offer the breast only if the baby continued crying after that. &quote;

Another reason for pausing is that babies wake up between their sleep cycles, which last about two hours. Its normal for them to cry a bit when theyre first learning to connect these cycles. If a parent automatically interprets this cry as a demand for food or a sign of distress and rushes in to soothe the baby, the baby will have a hard time learning to connect the cycles on his own. That is, hell need an adult to come in and soothe him back to sleep at the end of each cycle. &quote;

making kids face up to limitations and deal with frustration turns them into happier, more resilient people. And one of the main ways to gently induce frustration, on a daily basis, is to make children wait a bit. &quote;
