No need to turn into a Tiger Mother -- writer Pamela Druckerman says it's the French model American parents should be watching. While raising her own children in Paris, Druckerman observed a nation of hands-off, no-nonsense mothers and fathers raising well tempered children who eat their food and sleep through the night. Should American parents raise their Jacks and Marys more like Jacques and Madelines? We revisit a portion of our interview with Pamela Druckerman as part of our special holiday programming.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Pamela Druckerman, former staff writer for the Wall Street Journal and author of "Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting"
