J'Adore New Parenting Perspectives

Okay, the title really should read that "we" appreciate new parenting perspectives so please forgive us for choosing a catchier introduction to today's guest posts. We're pretty sure you're familiar with Pamela Druckerman's now famous book Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting, which made ripples—er, waves—in the media and parenting community when it debuted last month. While much has been said on this thought-provoking topic, we believe our Salt & Nectar friends can offer insight on the French approach to parenting because both mothers have also lived in France (lucky them!). Because it's our opinion that there is NOT one ultimate or superior way to parent, we hope that you'll join us in continuing the conversation about what we can learn from another culture's parenting philosophy and sharing with each other any perspectives that you think have been left out of the discussion. This way we can work together to bring up happy and healthy parents and children.
