Is Maman mean or magnifique?
My son's godmother, who is French, also believes in discipline (though she is a highly loving and supportive mother and godmother). She says, "there is something called l'heure de l'adulte". That is when they go away and leave us alone." Children, she says, have to learn boundaries. "The big difference is that the French believe strongly in creating those divisions. And it works. Look how well behaved French children are, compared to American children."
