You might be enlightened to learn how the French look at conditions like ADD/HD.  I find this as fascinating as those sights and smells you brag about, Lol.

Yea, It was on a resource page I subscribe to last night spring. Very interesting and a nice reminder even if it is "old" news (dated 2012).

A nice reminder? Of what?

Nobody said it was bad, retrack the assumption.  Jams stated passive agressively that those with worldy views would be enlightened by the blog post, it was simply pointed out that it was old news and not exactly note worthy, lol.

Of course, because parenting styles automatically change when one crosses the border into France.

Perhpas Americans need to stop dancing around the school systems and either ship themselves there or fix themselves. Your worldly experiences really are not.

I'm trying to figure out what the school system has to do with your topic here, the blog talked about parenting, not the school system.  Did you even read the blog or spend a moment looking at who wrote the blog before posting?

When Americans do move to France with kids, the kids usually go to the American school, ACS, in Paris. My half-siblings went to school in France, but that was just because my dad wanted to live there and happened to have school-aged kids.

Ah, nothing like coming to iv in the morning to not only find an entire thread trying to be passive agressive, but many of the posts within!   LoL, oh so funny by you two.

I know and I agree that when most American move oversees, their children tend to attend American schools, based on those I know who have lived overseas.  I just thought it was funny because the irony was a bit misplaced since the blog talked about parenting styles not the education system in France.

What is the reason that Americans move to France to educate their children?

Oh, were you not previously aware that people in other countries often think differently about all kinds of things?  Well, bless your heart.....

Not to be critical, but you're not really good at apostrophes after noon, either.
