Here’s news to Amy Chua (author of the hotly debated book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother): Chinese parenting style sucks too.
How do I know? What right do I have to make comments regarding children when I don’t have any? I am Asian and I too was a child once – not too long ago mind you – so I know what tactics my mother used that worked or didn’t. My mother’s parenting style changed when we migrated to Australia. I have witnessed firsthand the two apparent “Western” style and “Eastern” style parenting used in my family.
Now there are exceptions to the apparent “styles” that Amy tries to define. But race isn’t necessarily one of them.
I get asked this question quite often “How do you start a blog?”
For this post, I’m going to show you how to start a blog (a professional one) in easy steps. If you know how to click a mouse and use the internet, you’ll be able to do this.
Don’t be scared if you’ve never done this or feel you’re too technologically challenged to manage it – because you can do it. How do I know? Because I am pretty technologically challenged myself, yet I still did it. But you have the advantage of not having to make the same mistakes that I made by learning what I did correctly.
I’m going to split the quick lessons into different posts to make it easier and faster to digest.
They could be in a neighborhood near you.
They could be your friends.
Or friends of someone you know.
They look wealthy, live in lavish homes and neighborhoods, drive nice cars, wear designer clothes and dine in exclusive restaurants.
And they’re broke.
These people are… the Pretend Millionaires
Some of these people may make $40,000 a year or even $2 million dollars a year – but it makes no difference, because they spend more than they can make. So despite the fact that they’re spending left, right and center, they are actually broke.
