According to Bringing up Bebe, by Pamela Druckerman, published Tuesday, the French allow their children one snack a day - at 4:15. Never sooner, never later, never more.
The review I read also described in grave and gruesome detail, the stereotypical American family at a resturant. I think the author was spying on us.
I really want to read this book. But I’ve learned this stuff can be my poison. Parenting has exposed a fraility in me, previously undiscovered. The part of my temperament intent on being right, is also desperate to do it right. When I read a book claiming to provide the path, I am a danger to myself and my family.
I’m slowly learning to seek wisdom, not right-ness.
(And yes, the book cover claims Wisdom, but I’m still not sure if I’m ready…)
What “helpful” book do you wish you’d never read (on parenting or ANYTHING?)
