An American Mom's Experiment in Parisian ParentingeBook - 2013
Short of shipping her daughters off to Paris for these--and many other--invaluable early-life lessons, Crawford did the next best thing: She brought Old World--style parenting to Brooklyn. In the process, she discovered that her kids could actually hold a thought silently for two minutes without interrupting adult conversation, and that she didn't, in fact, need to buy out half the toy store to make their birthdays special. She even found out how much her kids like lamb chops! While combining the best attributes of the approach franc̦ais with what she saw as American qualities worth preserving, Crawford found a way to save her household and her sanity. Hilarious and insightful, French twist reveals how Crawford and her family survived le grand experiment--and why they aren't ever going back to the way things were.
