"Fascinating... gripping... extremely funny... A desperately needed corrective to received wisdom about child-rearing and what having children is supposed to do to a woman's sense of self. I loved it. It made me want to move to Paris" -- India Knight The Sunday Times "Self-deprecating, witty, informative... But however much she admires "the easy, calm authority" French parents seem to posess, will Druckerman manage it herself? Her efforts to do so add a compelling narrative to this fascinating study of French parenting" -- Michele Hanson Guardian "Observant, dryly entertaining... In recounting how her three children went native, Druckerman is engagingly self-deprecating... This book is worth its price for the crucial information it reveals about how to win the sleep wars" -- Amanda Craig Daily Mail "Fascinating and enlightening... Druckerman's observations struck me as Eureka discoveries that could improve interaction between adults and children here" The Lady "I couldn't put it down! Smart, funny, provocative, and genuinely eye-opening" -- Amy Chua, Author Of "Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mother" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Besides sharing interesting facts on how French parenting is different than Anglophone and let me add Latin American parenting, the author wrote it in a casual tone and with a great sense of humor.
I relaxed just by reading it and I feel reassured that seeing my daughter as the individual she is and letting her discover the world within safe limits is, first of all, respectful for her and will make the parenting experience even more enjoyable for mom and dad.
