When American journalist Pamela Druckerman 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. They ate braised leeks. They played by themselves while their parents sipped coffee. And yet French kids were still boisterous, curious, and creative. Why? How?
With a notebook stashed in her diaper bag, Druckerman set out to investigate--and wound up sparking a national debate on parenting. Researched over three years and written in her warm, funny voice, Bringing Up B b is deeply wise, charmingly told, and destined to become a classic resource for American parents.

The author writes well, and doesn't ramble, or write excessive pats on the back, or self pitying paragraphs. I definitely learned some parenting strategies with this book. Especially not being a helicopter mom and letting them “live their life.”
Through this book, i can understand how parisian raise their children. So paris its not only an ultimate tourism destination but their parenting style is also interesting to know.
This book is a great reading for new parents or expecting parents. The languange used is easy and straightforward, it got recipe and meal plan for your kids as well.
for anyone who are expecting baby, or want to change the way of their parenting; or tired of being baby's slave, have to read this book, it gives you understanding on how parenting are supposed to be done. world are not revolves around your baby, educate them to be independent instead of caging them their own world and be selfish towards other. i love this book and the way they think ( the parisian think)
