Catherine Crawford, a mother of two young daughters, is tired of the indulgent brand of parenting so popular in her trendy Brooklyn neighbourhood. All of the negotiating and bargaining has done scant more than to create a generation of little tyrants. After being exposed to the well-behaved, respectful children of her French friends, une lumiere went on - French children don't talk back!

Why French Children Don't Talk Back is a witty and insightful look at how the French manage to bring up obedient, well-adjusted kids. It occupies a pragmatic place on the book shelf and in life - an anti-Tiger Mother approach to parenting.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Drawing on the example of her French friends, her book highlights the mad intensity of some Anglo/American child-rearing techniques, reveals some gems of French wisdom, and tries to tread a path between the two' * Mslexia *
'Wittily written and peppered with amusing anecdotes gleaned from her own social circle...it never dictates, but merely suggests, and provides a persuasive alternative to the increasingly child-centric British way of raising kids' * Press Association *
Compelling * Evening Standard *
