Learn that every human is just the same as any ther human in most aspects So it was GREAT to see those principles being talked about and mentioned I also loved how she shared little snippets Le silence dans la nuit 1 2 of her kids how they struggled with the culture differences and how her daughter ask her if it was allowed for the kids to wait for their mom in a cafe until she had gone to the toilet Forne because that entire concept i a bit strange for me as someone having grown up with it being completely normal that as soon as you can go to the toilet La maruise des ombres ou La vie de Marie Madeleine d'Aubray maruise de Brinvilliers on yourwn you go do that even in a cafe when you know Les Tuniques Bleues, tome 52: Des Bleus dans le brouillard or can find itn your Mr Vertigo ownr when its just normal your parent can leave you in a place that like that for a few minutes until they return So reading that it is NOT something completely normal and typical was a bit La chambre noire ou Derb Moulay Chérif of an eyepener Mr Vertigo on just how different growing up in different areasf the world really are And now lets get into the negative The Urban Ideal Conversations with Paolo Soleri or should i say the things a German finds a bit annoying and strange because i never heardf it in that way and shouldn t i have as a German its really really extremely Le Cri de l'engoulevent over simplifies and generalises Germany as a whole Berlin is a huge city its also a world city with a huge mixturef different cultures believes and school systems all mixed together I am not saying its a whole different world than the rest The Fly Boys of Germany but it is uiet different to a lotf The Seven Daughters of Eve The Science That Reveals Our Genetic Ancestry other areas in Germany Especially since as the book itself states Berlin was split into two very different Germany s for a long time So it mixes a lotf very different German believes together What i mean by that is For example i am not listing EVERY SINGLE thing here because that would be about the size the actual book had but just you know some examples to showcase what i noticed right away and found bit annoying German kids go From Notting Hill with Love... Actually or ride their bikes to school alone at the latest from second yearnWhich is NOExcuse me What are you talking about Lets start Love Actually out with the bikingNot all german parents let their kids ride their bikes to school basically from second graden For example its actually not allowed in Bavaria where i live until the kid is in fourth grade Verso Cosmopolis or inther words at least eight most La frontire invisible of the time nine yearsld and actually have to complete something that i can most easy translate into a bike license meaning you have to take a test that shows that you can successfully navigate your bike through traffic without problem and The Great Gambler only after you pass that test and get your license you are allowed to drive your bike to school And while it is true that a lotf kids walk to school alone from second grade n they don t walk ALONE they go into groups f For the Love of a God (Greek God, other kids that meet up at the latest two streets from their home German public schools short their kids from specific districts the houses are marked under So specific neighbour groupsf houses all go to the same school and with that a good amount f children go to and from the same school at the same times There are at least always in the morning specific adults present n busy streets to assure that kids don t get hurt And that is how i personally as a German know that it goes down with letting kids go to school in the whole Cadavres chinois Houston (ROUERGUE LITTER) of GermanySo yes sure in a way in Germany Kids from a very young age go to school without their parents But they do not go alone They go with at least three to fourther kids either their age Asperger et fire de l'tre: Voyage au coeur d'un autisme pas comme les autres orlder and The Unfortunates on the way there are a few adults placed that lookut for them Did I Mention I Love You? on streets that might be dangerous I don t know if that is something uniuer strange Sapiens. Une brève histoire de l& or different to america Who knows Apparently if the book got the American side right since we aren topic The Guns of the South of schools shall we talk about thatBecause that hippy dippy lets all play and have a great time mojo Thats waldorf schools Which are basically special education places where its a lot easy going and slower paced learning with lotsf breaks i am not in any way saying those are bad schools They are actually good schools but sadly hard to get places in for most kids and also a lot The Expanse, Tome 6 : Les cendres de Babylone of them are not public but privater you have to have a special needs child to ualify for them in many areas in Germany maybe thats different in Berlin Could be PossiblyBut they are NOT the norm in germany The school that the author description in America teacher talking and talking and talking and handing Eldorado out lines and punishments if you are not doing what they want THAT sounds like a typical german school Also the after school hort the author mentioned Not something that most schools actuallyffer its a special program that a kid has to go to after school most f the time not even in school but for example housed in Kinderg rten and are not for doing homework but rather to keep the kid busy until the parent can come get them after work I am not saying that They Don T Exist In don t exist in way the author described them But they are not the norm at all in germany and not typical in the way that she described them as And than there is the entire section n parenting time the book basically states that every La face cache de la robe one that has a child is allowed up to three years without problem either momr dad during which they will get paid and than get their job back if they take those years without problems Sure theoretically n paper that might even be mostly true In actualitySorry NOMost people are lucky if they get six months and the payment they get after two r three months is no where near what six months and the payment they get after two The Man Behind the Iron Mask or three months is no where near what normally make so that most people have no choice but to go back to work as soon as possible to be actually able to continue to make the money they need to you know buy stuff For example for the kid they just hadAlso i will not even touch the subjectf that that entire deal with the fathers being able to take that time to make it easier Le grand Larousse de l'Histoire de France on not discriminating against specific women in jobs The characters i have for this review would not be enough to clearly prove that so completely wrong Lets just say that in theory yes sure in germany there is such a thing as parent time and you even earn a little money and either parent can take it even the father but yeah just because something theoretically exists does not mean that it actually works and leave it at that so there are some things in this book that as a German born and raised and still living there as an adult are a bitf head scratchers still this book was not a bad book And f course its hard to put an entire country and all its different states customs and ideas into ne book And she could have hardly named the book the Berlin way Star Crossed Shadow Thane of rising a child so i get it And for the most part Sara Zaske did a great job with

As a mom f 3 and as an elementary teacher I m always up for a read relating to children and parenting I enjoyed the tiger mom book comparing Asian parenting with its US version When I heard that Achtung Baby was Moon Palace out a book comparing German parenting with US I was thrilled I am German what a perfect book for me to readThe book s author is Sara Zaske She heads to Germany with her husband who gets a job there and their toddler aged daughter They live in Germany for several years during which time she has a son They move back to America when her kids are about first and fourth grade age This book is basedn her Moon Palace observations during her time in Germany They lived in BerlinSara begins I wanted to raise my children to be strong independent free individuals all very American values Yet I tended to use paradoxical parenting practices constantly correcting my childrenveremphasizing their academic achievement and closely supervising them to ensure their safety Moving to Germany made me realize how American these practices were and how misguidedBasically Zaske अब यस्तो कहिल्यै नहोस् observes that Germans give their children much freedom than Americans do She discusses how Germans let babies fall asleepn their Ix-xhud li ma deherx own rather than the American practicef rocking the baby to sleep In short there s not a lot The Adventures of Barry Joe of attachment parenting in Germany Children in Germany are in preschool earlier andften than US kids and German parents tend to think this is a good thing with little mommy guilt that we expect here in the states German children walk The Innocent or bike to school regularly Eight yearlds walking to school traversing busy intersections is not an unusual thing Zaske mentions that in America parents have been arrested for things like this that are everyday Mthodes de design UX: 30 mthodes fondamentales pour concevoir des expriences optimales occurrences in GermanyAchtung Baby is bound to raise the uestion which method is better Zaske clearly favors the German method freuently touting its successes while speaking negatively about US parenting As a experienced mom I can understand somef this I think all Le Livre des vrais surdous of us as parents tend to idealize the situation we re in whenur Mthodes de design UX: 30 mthodes fondamentales pour concevoir des expriences optimales own children are little I can see advantages to the German parenting methods and I am a proponentf giving children freedom I ll always remember Le guide de la transformation digitale: La mthode en 6

Little Annie Fanny, tome 3 on my kids throughout the night to ensure they were still breathingr hover Ses yeux bleus over them as they played Then again there were definitely partsf the German parenting model as presented that I didn t care forFor instance I never put my kids in preschool and was honestly sad when the time came for them to begin kindergarten I cherished my time with them at home Germans seem to feel that kids benefit from the company L& of their peers thanf their parents even at a young age Homeschooling is not just discouraged in Germany it s illegal This is just speculation Les Yeux bleus cheveux noirs (Double t. 96) (French Edition) on my part but I wonder if partf this stems from the communist background that at least half Histoire de la dcouverte de l'inconscient of Berlin was under until fairly recently Children belong to the state not their parents is a very Communist linef thoughtZaske freuently added disclaimers to statements in Achtung Baby When I finished I concluded that while there are probably a few broad differences in parenting between Germans and Americans the differences may not be all that great I don t feel for instance that the divide here would be nearly as large as that between US and Asian parents Shortly after I began this book I was sitting at Disney s Animal Kingdom waiting for a show when I heard two people conversing in German behind me I turned around and asked them in German if they were from Germany Thankfully they switched Essai d'exploration de l'inconscient over to flawless English and I learned that they had moved to Florida a few years ago from Stuttgart along with their then infant daughter They both teach at the university here I told them I d begun reading a book comparing German and American parenting and asked them what differences they saw They both looked a little perplexed and said that they felt that things probably dependedn the individual parent They didn t really notice any differences Stuttgart is in southern Germany so I m wondering again whether what Zaske L'homme De Kaboul observed was a Berlin specific East German phenomenaWhat I gathered from the book is that we in the US can helpur kids with a few tips from German parents don t be afraid to give your kids responsibility Let them play Le vertige de Gabrielle (Oseras-tu?, outdoors Let them play creatively rather than always in a planned academic media focused wayZaske finishes Achtung Baby The biggest lesson I learned in Germany is that my children are not really mine They belong first and foremost to themselves I already knew this intellectually but when I saw parents in Germany put this value into practice I saw how differently I was acting I think that this book is a riftn the Europeans do it so much better ala fika and hygge and everything Scandinavian Finnish schools being better and Danish Parenting etc etc Did I learn anything from the book Not really I was raised to be self reliant and not to turn to an anxious mummy who is wondering if her friends are judging her for how she raised her kids This book feeds into the horrifying aspect Amandine Malabul, sorcire maladroite of MOMMY SHAMING that is so evidenced in social media even celebrities get Mommy ShamedWill you learn something from this book Maybe but I would not really in my honestpinion recommend this book as you won t really learn anything new and usable until YOU turn Le loup dans la bergerie off your anxiety and not worry about feeling bad about how you raise YOUR kid Workn that and then maybe read this book It s been a while since I ve read And Reviewed A Parenting Book Therefore When reviewed a parenting book therefore when brother s wife recommended a parenting book with therefore when my brother s wife recommended a parenting book with catchy and interesting title I took note Un empoisonnement universel: Comment les produits chimiques ont envahi la plante. of it I decided to read Achtung Baby An

La Sombra del Lobo optionn Germany Because honestly most Martin protiv CIA e i KGB a of the time Its HORRIBLE and wrong and just in which year are you living because we are no longer in world war 2 So yeskay I KGB The Inside Story of Its Foreign Operations from Lenin to Gorbachev only reuested this book because it has a german title and the subtitlef an american mom learning the german art was just enough to make me click reuest Les prdateurs au pouvoir : Main basse sur notre avenir on NetGalley and read this book But honestly Its pretty GOODI think its a nice book if you simply want a view into a different culturer like me are just curious to see your The Sixth Winter own culture compared to a differentne and actually see the differences I would defiantly recommend giving this book a read If nothing else it is uiet entertaining to read the author struggle through german s bureaucracy and all the paper work because yes she got that PERFECTLYLets start with me saying thatI LOVE her for actually saying that America did not save Le guide complet du langage C or ended the second World war that America is not the sole saverf everyone and that they did not influence Germany and make it into the country it is today Because THANK YOU Its nice to read that from an American that actually summaries the European history and America s part in it as it most likely was and does show that Germany is not this huge anti everything country That Germans are not the devil evil Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 et CC pour les Nuls grand format, 2e dition or against any and all people that are not blond and blue eyed I also appreciated that she actually said she expected germany and its people to be completely different to how they actually are Because that is just how is We all have specific stereo typical notions we grow up in from different countries around the world I grew up with the believe that Americans allnly ever eat McDonalds and eat it in from UN AUTRE MONDE (French Edition) of their TV I am just guessing here but i don t think thats really what allf America is like Moving I'll Catch You If You Fall on the to actual Parenting aspectsf this bookI think that her entire attitude towards letting kids explore learn and decide for themselves what to be scared Profil - Baudelaire : Les Fleurs du mal : Analyse littraire de l'oeuvre (Profil d'une Oeuvre t. 21) (French Edition) of what to do and when is great And yes in some way resembling some aspectsf how kids in Germany do grow up And she is defiantly right that in germany most kids spend a good amount f time utside especially when they are still in the ages between toddler years and 10 years Pulsions et destins des pulsions (PR.PA.PF.PSYCHA t. 880) (French Edition) old Not as much in the last 10 years as

In the traditionf Bringing Up Bebe and Battle Hymn f the Tiger Mother a clarion call and practical guide for a return to rational parenting from an American woman who learned how to raise strong self reliant children by following the common sense approach f German parenting When Sara Zaske moved from Oregon to Berlin with her husband and toddler she knew the transition would be multi layered adding parenting and then the birth Persepolis of another child into the mix She was surprised to discover that German parents give their children a great dealf freedom much than Americans In Berlin kids walk to school by themselves ride R ensuring the child s development never mind the financial and logistical barriers In her chapter Tristesse de la terreUne histoire de Buffalo Bill Cody on limitingr eliminating homework Zaske points ut that for children in low income families where the care giving adults also have limited education homework nly accelerates frustration and confusion If kids didn t understand in the classroom homework basically prescribes a tutorial with the parents which reuires that the parents have the time the knowledge etcGiven my feelings CSS3 pour les web designers of pessimism about the US educational system trajectory I was encouraged that even though Zaske does pitch her book to the individual parent who might want to change hisr her attitude about parenting which is the classic neoliberal solution to a structural problem fix your attitude she also recognizes that the problems run deeper and can Dentelles et tchador only have political and collective solutions so she recommendsrganizations you can join and also speaking up Tout ce qui nous rpare on the local level When she returns to the US and her daughter Sophia is hopelessly bored in school Zaske startsn this path and though she admits that a good bit Le dernier jur of that PTA advocacy fallsn deaf ears this recourse to rganizations and governance avoids indulging the fantasy that ne parent could embrace this German art without broader cultural change I am not a parent so you wouldn t think I am the audience for this book but it was utterly fascinating Sara and her husband moved to Germany for his work along with their baby It takes them a while to get settled in but Mauvaise Base once they do everyone starts asking Sara when they re going to enroll their toddler in preschooldaycare Sara is confused as she s not working so she had assumed that she was taking caref their daughter especially since a mother is the best and most important person in her world and in the best position to provide her with everything she needs right Right Well that s certainly not the assumption in Berlin Instead it is assumed that the child will learn from her peers and learn how to navigate social settings along with a lot Le Mystrieux Cercle Benedict, Tome 3 : Le mysterieux cercle Benedict et le dilemme du prisonnier ofther benefits and it s kind J'apprends l'anglais

anything during the day she was in part creating the situation where he screamed all night It s not Ferberizing but it also isn t attachment parenting at all Which makes sense in a country where people park their strollers with kids in themutside a restaurant Le Régime de la Thyroïde: Comment booster votre énergie, perdre du poids et activer votre métabolisme tout en maintenant l'équilibre

where Americans score abysmally so we add testing and Neanderthal Man our scores get worse they do pretty well A big partf this mentality comes from the understandable very strong anti totalitarianism mentality in Germany And there are still some residual differences in the former East Germany where for example the rates Neandertal: Die Geschichte geht weiter of day care use are highest as under communism all women workedWhile the book is pitched as a parenting guide for parenting the German way I instead read it as a memoirf moving to Germany with a young family with a side La conspiration des scorpions of sociology about the educational field And as someone childless by choice I thoroughly enjoyed it I read it in justver ne day Couldn t put it down And couldn t stop talking about it for weeks afterwards thoroughly annoying all my friends and family This was a fascinating look at both the German family dynamic and Germany as a country There are definitely things I agree with and

L't o je suis n only is shepen minded to German parenting methods but she is completely honest with her thought process the surprises she encountered and honest when she disagrees with some Etre sans destin of it What Zaske shares is that German culture and German schooling expects parents to give their children certain freedoms and rights Basically that kids will be responsible for themselves from an young age this includes going to the park alone walking to school alone travel etc Zaske is honest that she doesn t readily give her children the complete freedom that somef the L’Élégance des veuves other parents do but basically that she eventually gives her children freedoms as the get used to their routines German schools also value free play and lotsf it during school This is something beyond what Americans can imagine Germans have found children are focused when they need to be the free time and play they are given I really loved hearing this although it makes it hard for me to imagine that happening here in America German early schooling also incorporates decision making For example the teachers ask students for ideas How to Master Facebook Marketing in 10 Days on what they should learn next and then everyone participates Zaske talks about how in Germany the parentsften band together to make changes in their schools for the benefit Management Consulting Today and

decisionsn what to do with their time I feel that is a much natural approach Zaske does give a brief explanation n how her children had to adjust when moving back to America and the expectations here
