French children don't throw food

Throw away all those other books on child rearing and get back to basics, the French way! So refreshing

Excellent book!!

This is such a good book on parenting, I wish I had had this 30-odd years ago!!!
It seems very Montessori-based. I was very impressed with the book and the author, especially that she researched it by herself!!! Excellent journalism.
Excellent book !! All parents should read and benefit by this book..
Well done!!

French Children Don't Throw Food

I read this in one day, couldn't get enough! My baby is 13 months - taking his first steps and so becoming a toddler. The dreaded tantrums are starting as he asserts his will. I have been looking for a book which offers some advice on good old-fashioned parenting, where the children turn out well behaved and I stay sane. This book delivers and more. It's a parenting book, self-help manual and at times, laugh out loud in it's observations on parenting dilemmas. I recommend to all parents - essential reading!
