Inhaltsangabe

This audiobook provides an entertaining, enlightening look at the art of raising self-reliant, independent children based on one American mom's experiences in Germany

When Sara Zaske moved from Oregon to Berlin with her husband and toddler, she knew the transition would be challenging, especially when she became pregnant with her second child. She was surprised to discover that German parents give their children a great deal of freedom - much more than Americans. In Berlin, kids walk to school by themselves, ride the subway alone, cut food with sharp knives, and even play with fire. German parents did not share her fears, and their children were thriving. Was she doing the opposite of what she intended, which was to raise capable children? Why was parenting culture so different in the States?

Through her own family's often funny experiences as well as interviews with other parents, teachers, and experts, Zaske shares the many unexpected parenting lessons she learned from living in Germany. Achtung Baby reveals that today's Germans know something that American parents don't (or have perhaps forgotten) about raising kids with selbstandigkeit (self-reliance) and provides practical examples American parents can use to give their own children the freedom they need to grow into responsible, independent adults.

This instructive audiobook is perfect for new parents and anyone else interested in how different cultures approach child-rearing.

interesting views and observations

Within this book, Sara Zaske offers her opinion, her thoughts, observations and experiences being a mother and parent in Germany when originally being from Amerika.

For me being german having a son in Berlin too it was fun and entertaining reading about a positive american view on current german culture raising children. And on the difderence there is to american culture, thoughts and fears.

I recommend reading the book to most german parents since it's always healthy to take other people's points of view into account.

An amazing and reassuring read

As an Englishman living in Berlin sometimes I find the German way (including my wife) of parenting to be too loose. However having listened to this book it made me realise just how wonderful it is to give your kids freedom and let them discover themselves who are there to be. I hope more parents around the world pay heed to this book and embrace a more German approach!
