Now FRENCH Parents Are Superior

Anyone remember when we were urged to call French fries “liberty fries”?

How quickly things change; now it seems everything French is superior. French women don’t get fat and they’re better parents, according to a new book, Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting (Penguin, Feb.7).

An article in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, “Why French Parents Are Superior” sent the book up to #11 on Amazon’s sales rankings (yes; the same publication that launched Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother with the similarly titled, “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior“).
