Parent and Child Face-to-Face: On the Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother


by Celia Genishi & Mariana Souto-Manning — April 05, 2011

This is a commentary on the best seller, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, by Amy Chua. The authors make the contents of the book more complex than the media have by emphasizing the author's actual message, the pressure on parents to have model children, and the agency and capacity for resistance of children who have their own ideas about how their lives should be lived.
