Learning to Wait Decreases Anxiety?

In here new book, “Bringing Up Bébé: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting,” author Pamela Druckerman writes about her research and observations of French parenting.  She writes that French parents don’t coddle their children as they teach their children how to wait, to delay gratification, and to live independently within defined boundaries.

The results, Druckerman asserts, are that French children react much better to anxiety and pressure versus their American counterparts because they are stronger individuals.
