I actually enjoyed that book as did my Dd1 then age 11-we know lots of parents with different approaches and we sometimes say "tiger mom over there", And discuss the controversies and stereotyping of ethnic groups, which we reject-tiger moms and dads are common in all groups, and classes. We laugh more at the new age types who let their kids be themselves, without regard for the fact that they are utterly horrid to be around! I found other books in the "genre" from the POV of other parents and students in response to the book-shall I look for the titles? Plus like Amy we do Suzuki music so ample opportunity to parent-watch there! A mixture of approaches, but it is supposed to be based on love- I think Amy Chua lost sight of that sometimes. As many of us do.
I don't have the energy to tiger, but I do insist on some efforts and home tuition in weak areas, which never occurred to my parents. Hence my lifelong label of "can't do maths" because I got Bs instead of As like other topics. So did my DDs until I took them to Kumon, Explore Learning, private tuition and DIY by me and DH. 11+ prep was a great boost, also better teaching and attitude at school. Now their maths skill and enjoyment is on par with their more early interest in literacy. Even I like doing sums with them! Tiger by my parents standards, woos by Daogroupie standards!
