A great new parenting book has been released and it’s called “The French Parent.” The author, Pamela Druckerman, is an American living in France. Her book shares the ups and downs of being a foreign mom and offers practical advice on how to raise well-behaved children from other countries. Pamela’s husband, John, is a U.S. citizen who also lives in France.
The premise of the French parenting book is that all parents in both countries practice the same parenting styles and have the same goals for their children. However, there are subtle differences that make each family unique. It also follows the life of John and Pamela as they plan their families in America. The story shows how being a single mom can be challenging, but it also has its rewards because this is a book that has sold over a million copies worldwide.
Pages Of Rich Stories
The book contains several hundred pages of rich stories about John and Pamela’s experiences raising their children and putting them under the care of their grandparents. Some of the chapters include a look at different parenting styles in France and their positive and negative impacts on children. There are also useful tips on how to approach work and home issues and how to stay motivated while working away from home.
Some of the situations set forth in the book are: a reading marathon with the kids, the death of a beloved pet, and a day at the zoo with the kids. Other helpful tips are on how to create meaningful time together as a family and advice on getting your child to use language appropriately so that they won’t be punished. Many of these scenarios have actually happened to Pamela and John and have helped to create some of the best stories in the book. This is not your typical parenting book and it certainly isn’t just for moms.
Excellent Advice For Single Moms
The author, Martha Stewart, provides excellent advice for single moms and dads who want to raise their children in a way that works best for them. Her experience as a single parent brought her many insights about raising children and she uses those in the French Parenting Book.
She addresses many of the same issues that divorced mothers face and provides valuable advice on how to rebuild trust and respect with your child. The book has been praised by many people who read it and are now parents themselves. It is guaranteed to bring you the much-needed perspective on ways to successfully raise your children.
Experience Of Author
What makes the French Parenting Books such an interesting read is that it is not overly focused on parenting in France. It is instead, more of an international journey by which the author shares experiences from her own vantage point of living in France. That makes it even more relatable and valuable for those of us who do not have kids who are still having the challenges that French parents face. It is no doubt a great read and if you have never thought about trying to raise your kids in a different culture, I would highly recommend it.
The book has many practical tips and advice about dealing with difficult situations like divorce, especially if it involves children. It talks about how to deal with the social ramifications of separating a husband and wife in a French manner.

You will also discover that there are certain customs that you must incorporate in your daily life in order to fully enjoy being a parent. These practical tips for parenting and dealing with the social aspects of France will help you succeed as a parent and have greater success with your children.
Many of the most successful and richest families in the world are actually French or German. In the past several decades we have begun to see a growing number of our European ancestry in the United States, and we also see this trend becoming more prevalent internationally.
