French Children might not throw food but they do put their feet on tube seats

I’m re-reading French Children Don’t Throw Food (or, Bringing up Bebe to my American readers). I’m really enjoying it and when I’ve finished it properly will be back to discuss. It was with some amusement therefore that I observed a French mother and her three children on the tube the other day. All three children were messing around, alternately sitting on the tube seats flashing their knickers because their knees and feet were up and tormenting each other and their mother, who sat un-chicly and wearily in the midst of their scrimmaging and every so often shouted “arrêtes‎”.
