HOW FRENCH MUM HELP HIM TO RELAX?

  • Time: Monday, 03 December 2018

Are French children calmer than other kids? Honestly, I have no idea. But I do hear a lot of North American Moms saying how well-behaved French kids seem to be. “How do you get them to sit still like that for an entire  family meal?” they ask. Well, childrearing in France is certainly more laid back than when I was a kid, but it’s still pretty strict about lots of things, and that includes bedtime rules. Preschoolers, for instance, are supposed to be in bed by 8pm at the latest (earlier if they’re sleepy), and too bad if Mom or Dad (or both) aren’t home from work yet.

After the meal in a parisian home...

"In Parisian tradition, being a first-class hostess is more than pouring drinks and seeing that everyone gets fed. Meticulous attention to detail is very important to us, even after the meal.  Guests must feel pampered and cocooned as they slowly digest and engage in after-dinner conversation. It’s up to the hostess to see that everyone is having a nice time and will have wonderful memories of the evening. It’s time to serve good coffee, relaxing herbal teas, or delightful liqueurs.  If smoking is allowed, it’s also the right time to pass around the cigarette box, and offer the gents hand-rolled Churchills."
