quoi?

A new book is out, purportedly about how French parents’ parenting is, in some ways, superior to Americans’.  (Bringing Up Bebe:  One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting  by Pamela Druckerman)

controversial laced generalizations = press = sales traffic   Capice?

Here’s where parents get into trouble:  comparing & competition

Take what you want out of parenting books, trust your instincts, & pray.

My top parenting tips:

  • be consistent
  • spend toooonnnnssss of time together
  • love, hugs, love, hugs, love
  • share dinner together
  • make home a sanctuary of peace, enthusiasm, exploration, creativity & relaxation

“Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.”  ~Robert Fulghum
