Pamela Druckerman, Author, “Bringing up Bébé”

For anyone unfortunate enough to need the heads up, in a matter of minutes or hours depending on where you are, it is Mothers Day. Let’s be clear, if you haven’t written your card, turn off the radio and start writing immediately. But if you have, you may want to listen to our next guest. Because while there is not — and this has been proven imperically — a better mother than whichever one you’re about to wish a Happy Mothers Day to, according to Pamela Druckerman there is a place with the greatest skills on how to raise a child. And that place is France. The book is “Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting,” and Pamela is with us now. (Originally broadcast 12-16-12 on The John Batchelor Show)
