I’ve never been much of a one for parenting books, but as a mother of an increasingly cheeky four-year-old boy (I swear, he was perfect before he went to nursery school!), I found myself intrigued by the title, and being something of a Francophile, I thought in for a cent, in for a Euro, as it were!I was pleased to discover a very common sense approach presented on the pages! It really is all just straight forward advice on setting boundaries for your children in a way they will understand, wh [...]

this book boered me. gave up in second chapter. it may be beacause im not American, or because I err to the attachement parenting philosophy. im sure it has good points for some types of people though. wish shed just get to the point though.

This book was so annoying, it ended up being a proper hate read because basically it is just common sense and the author shows by example exactly what happens if you spoil your children and let them rule the roost.Her two children sound horrible, just horrible little brats with a huge sense of entitlement.! It's a good job she went on a quest to be a better parent, she might just rescue them from a life of confusion, wondering why the whole world doesn't revolve around them!Also she says she lov [...]

A quick read, well worth the time if you are interested in parenting and modern kids' behaviour. It's anecdotal and observational and great reading, especially if like me you were squashed into the confines of an aircraft seat while reading it. My favourite quote from the book was one that Catherine Crawford gleaned from a French parent at the children's playground: 'don't get up unless there is blood'. In other words, let the kids sort out their differences with other kids themselves. Only get [...]

If you are going to raise children this is a must read. If you work with children and wonder what the heck went wrong - this book will make sense and perhaps help you teach good manners in the classroom since their parents did not think it was necessary. The author is not only open and honest about her own parenting but wonderfully vulnerable and understanding of the importance of being aware of how we parent and raise our children to be pleasant people to be around.

A slightly annoyingly written book but with plenty of sense it. My mother was French and I recognise much here from my up bringing. It also chimes with much that i am trying to do with my family. We should expect more from our children.

I'm obviously French mother of a 6 year old without knowing it!A lot of UK parents could benefit from this book, as there is a serious lack of respect and discipline in our society now. Felt the French practices were correct.

One major thing I like (prolly the only thing I like in this book): The French's appreciation over good food.Other than that, the author's obsession towards all this Frenchification lunacy sometimes irate me.

The author had enough material for one good feature article. She didn't do anyone a favourite by fluffing this out into a book.

Really? Do we honestly need to do this to ourselves? Thank goodness my kids are older than the target demographic for this book.

It's more chitty chatty & observation based.

I don't agree with all the info in this book, but for the most part I think that every parent needs to apply part of it to their lives.
