My Tiger Mom


My Tiger Mom - We’ve already posted twice about Amy Chua’s essay “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior”, so is it any wonder that a new image meme has grown up around the backlash? Note: the image used in the generator is not Amy Chua; it’s a stock photo.
Amy Chua's memoir of "raising two daughters in the Chinese way, with threats, taunts and unrelenting discipline." The Yale Law School professor has been slammed ever since she outlined strict child-rearing tactics that included rejecting a hamdmade birthday card for lack of effort, and calling her daughter "garbage." It comes off as a cross between "The Great Santini" and "Mommie Dearest." But Chua defends her style, and says her lessons, which reflect American values of hard work, were always set against a background of love.
