The Secrets of French Parents

6 of 9

Guidance

Watch a French mom and you'll notice that she talks to her child as one would to an adult. The French view children as little people, capable of following directions from infancy. “A French mother teaches a child how to listen, how to be responsible, and does not give in,” Blanc says. “We explain to our children what our expectations are and we follow through. A French parent is not scared of their children and acts in control."
