An American Mom On The German Art Of Raising Self-Reliant Children

Book Cover - Achtung Baby

  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. 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?

In her book, "Achtung Baby," Zaske shares the many unexpected parenting lessons she learned from living in Germany.
