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.
