French parenting has no international reputation, such as French cheese or French wine. French parents say that they do nothing special. And yet their children sleep for a month or two, three all night long. They do not shout in restaurants. And when you visit somewhere, the children play quietly while the adults talk.

They are only much better educated and have more self-control. They do not have to be entertained 24 hours a day and discover the world at their own pace. What are the secrets of this country full of good sleepers, gourmet eateries and their relaxed parents?
With a notebook in her diaper bag, Pamela Druckerman, former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, was investigating.
