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 Bébé is deeply wise, charmingly told, and destined to become a classic resource for American parents.
Sin embargo, la autora observa que los niños franceses se comportan educadamente en los restaurantes y comen de todo, duermen toda la noche desde los cuatro meses, no gritan ni piden cosas constantemente y saben jugar solos mientras sus padres los observan a distancia o charlan con sus amistades... ¿Cómo es posible? ¿Cuál es el secreto?
Decidida a desentrañar el misterio y con una libreta escondida en la bolsa de los pañales, la periodista emprende una investigación sobre las claves de una sociedad integrada por pequeños gastrónomos dormilones y progenitores razonablemente relajados. Con una narración literaria a medio camino entre la carcajada y la desesperación, nos brinda toda una investigación sobre la educación del bebé, la imposición de reglas y sobre cómo inculcar la virtud de la paciencia.
