battle hymn of the tiger mother Archive
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.
