Your généralisations about the behaviour of French children are in general true but that does not mean that they have perfect, patient and faultless parents.
Plenty of French schoolchildren come from very lacking households, luckily the French schools have the tools to do the job and they are not hampered from using them, the word "education" in France means upbringing and applies equally to the home as the school, its the responsability of the education system to make up for any lacking in the latter.
Thanks to his schooling your son will very quickly comply and learn to understand and respect boundaries like his peers.
After about 2 weeks into the school holidays you start to hear some French children screaming and making tantrums in public, in most cases looking at the parent or parents more often its the grandparents and you realise the value of the childs schooling.
