Have a smartphone handy to play our interactive game! Get ready to learn about real French holiday feasts: le foie gras, la dinde aux marrons, la bûche while playing an interactive game that will unlock loads of French holiday fun.
Sunday 12/13 : FRENCH PARENTING
2 to 4pm EST – 11am to 1pm PST
Many American parents are curious about certain aspects of the French parenting style – a style that emphasizes good manners and respect for adult time.
Led by Julie Molas, a Coucou teacher and French mother living in New York, this workshop will examine the French approach to raising children and demystify the French mother trope. Since there is no one “right way” to parent, attendees will be encouraged to share personal experiences. The workshop is open to all, parents or not!
