IT’S CHOCOLATE, IF BROWN BEARS SWEAT
Which nationality has the most ingenious parents? Is it the Germans? The Italians? Or perhaps the Australians? One of the leaders in this parenting World Cup is surely Linda from Canada who tells her son with the sweet tooth that chocolate is made from the sweat of brown bears.
Another contender is Emilio from Spain, who convinces his five-year-old daughter that wolves live not in the forest but in the local disco in an early effort to discourage her from showing too much interest in Valencia’s nightlife. A fiendishly funny book replete with parenting tricks from around the world.
