Education pushed too much? After going reviewing this piece, "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior" I have come to a conclusion; of complete admiration towards these "tiger moms" they truly have a unique way of raising their child. A child that succeeds in each level of academic education. Children raised this seem to sound, and extremely successful in life, and ultimately that is what a parent wants for their child. As a parent myself, the modes of instruction and discipline that these parents require from their child is just not the way that I want to raise a child, don't get wrong my child succeeds in school and other areas. As a parent I don't push my child or deprive them from being a child. In the sense that, they go outside, play with others, they are able to play on the computer, or even watch television once in awhile. the method that these "tiger moms'' use may be a little excessive for my life and children if they believe that this works for them, then more power to them. In the long run, my child will be the best they are going to be, no matter what area that may be. Being raised as a Roman Catholic Ecuadorian was extremely hard for me being raised here in the United States, it may of have been a little easier if I would have been raised in Ecuador. Growing up was hard, and not allowing the girls in the family not to wear jeans, always having my hair in a pony tail, and going to church almost every afternoon after school among many miscellaneous things, about the home environment. In the U.S. many parents are extremely cautious on how their children are being raised. Which will also state that we are free to raise our children the best way we see fit.

In my life growing up my mother was very involved in everything that I had chosen to do. Her opinion and expectations of me were very important and close in my mind. My mother was hard on me to a point, however she always knew when something was just too much, or when to let me have my time to be a kid. I feel the way the tiger mom treats her children is somewhat run like…

I thought that her parenting methods were incredulous and things such as calling a kid garbage it should never be done. Then I started to see Amy Chua’s point.

    Inferior by Hanna Rosin contains an excellent anecdote that puts Rosin in a position of defence for her parenting style against Amy Chua’s Chinese-style parenting. The anecdote, which her 2-year-old son calls her a “kitty kat” when she was acting out “tiger,” reveals her position amongst other parents in the standards set by Amy Chua. However, this does not break her as a parent, nor does it cause her to rethink what she does for her kids. Instead, Rosin defends herself by to criticizing “Ms. Chua’s parenting…

    the Tiger Mom” by Amy Chua, I was surprised how Chua shared in detail about her life journey as a parent and raising two children. This is a book about Amy Chua’s experiences in raising her two daughters, Sophia and Luisa (Lulu), in what she believes is the “Chinese mother” style of parenting. She is quick to point out in the first chapter, entitled “The Chinese Mother,” that she uses the term “loosely” as it would be ridiculous to try to assume that every mother from China is a like a tiger mom…
