Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting (now with Bébé Day by Day: 100 Keys to French Parenting)
The runaway New York Times bestseller that shows American parents the secrets behind France's amazingly well-behaved children, from the author of There Are No Grown-ups. 



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.

There Are No Grown-ups: A Midlife Coming-of-Age Story

The best-selling author of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face.

When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her "Madame," and she detects a disturbing new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever.

Yet forty isn't even technically middle-aged anymore. And after a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life.

What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway? And why didn't anyone warn us that we'd get cellulite on our arms? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups diagnoses the in-between decade when... 

   • Everyone you meet looks a little bit familiar. 
   • You're matter-of-fact about chin hair. 
   • You can no longer wear anything ironically. 
   • There's at least one sport your doctor forbids you to play. 
   • You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth. 
   • Your parents have stopped trying to change you. 
   • You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people. 
   • You realize that everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently. 
   • You know that it's ok if you don't like jazz.

Internationally best-selling author and New York Times contributor Pamela Druckerman leads us on a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. A witty dispatch from the front lines of the forties, There Are No Grown-ups is a (midlife) coming-of-age story, and a book for anyone trying to find their place in the world.

Lust in Translation: Infidelity from Tokyo to Tennessee

  • Russian spouses don't count beach resort flings as infidelity
  • South Africans consider drunkenness an adequate excuse for extramarital sex

Criancas Francesas Nao Fazem Manha (Em Portugues do Brasil)
A jornalista americana se muda para Paris logo apos se casar. La, alem das diferencas culturais mais conhecidas, comeca a observar que as criancas se comportam de forma muito mais educada do que jamais viu. Estarrecida, ela percebe que os jantares nas casas dos franceses nao sao eventos caoticos em que criancas interrompem os adultos, brigam com os irmaos ou reclamam dos legumes.

Esse e apenas um dos exemplos que a fazem querer descobrir qual e a mistura de autoridade e relaxamento dos pais que faz com que as criancas francesas sejam tao comportadas, sem ficarem reprimidas ou sem personalidade. Afinal, qual e o segredo para que durmam a noite toda? Para que nao tenham ataques de birra em publico? Para que sentem-se de maneira educada a mesa e experimentem muito mais do que nuggets e batatas? Para que desenvolvam a autoestima e se tornem articuladas?

Os pais que ela observou em Paris parecem ter encontrado o equilibrio perfeito entre ouvir os filhos e deixar claro que sao os adultos que mandam. Dentro de um limite conhecido como cadre, essas criancas tem total liberdade e autonomia, mas fora dele, quem exerce autoridade sao os pais.

Pamela nota que os franceses conseguem balancear admiravelmente suas necessidades e as das criancas, nao se acorrentam a um falso conceito de pais perfeitos e, ainda assim, sao atentos, carinhosos e criam filhos educados e felizes. A autora empreende uma surpreendente jornada pela cultura francesa e passa a rever alguns conceitos da criacao de filhos.

Por anos, ela investiga as respostas a essas e outras questoes, alem de viver muitas experiencias no proprio cotidiano, ja que se torna mae em Paris. O resultado e um relato inteligente, bem-humorado e ao mesmo tempo bem-fundamentado dos segredos dos franceses para ter filhos criativos e educados e tambem um manual para os pais nao se tornarem escravos de pequenos tiranos.
