Interesting... I'm pretty good about setting boundaries for the kids. They must wait for the grown ups to finish speaking. My kids do snack twice a day, but I think they do need it. They have a snack during school and one as soon as they get home. I think every child should learn a little self control and how to entertain themselves.
I come from a half-french canadian family (both my parents have one french parent and one english) and my husband was born quebec to a french mother so a lot of our parenting is as described in the article. We firmly believe that consistency in our routines, expectations and discipline are incredibly important. Especially with two children on the Autistic spectrum.
I definitely think there is a lot to be said about how we parent in north america compared to other countries. I know I am very guilty of not having interests outside of my children because most of my hobbies; like scrapbooking, center around them.
This was a great article. So interesting! I really want to be like a parent in France. I think it is a great idea to teach a child patience. I am finding especially lately that Michael is driving me crazy with his impatience. If he doesn't have it NOW he is upset. I need to work on this with him.
