I heard some news about the book for Tiger Moms who discipline their children by a hard punishment this book is controversy and the debate was not done. Many people are is dis agree for the mother who discipline their children with a hard punishment for example piano lesson she would not gave their a chance to drink water or to go their children to the rest room until their lesson wasn't perfect and she hurt her children if aren't listen to her. This kind of punishment is a culture for a Chinese community that's why they said their community has good development and all of people their country has a disciple to their homes. Are you this agree for a Tiger Moms? what is you're comment? have a great day...

I have read an article about it in the Times magazine. Well I agree that her methods are quite unconventional and hurtful, but her intentions are quite decent. According to her she's preparing her child for the harshness of the world, or for real life. According to her she is being strict because she believes that her children can do far better. Her methods also yield good results as her children are doing great and excelling well. The side of the child was also said in the article. And according to her when she grows up she's going to be just like her mother, though she's going to modify some of her mother's methods. Her methods actually has a lot of psychological significance. And it does really improve the mind of a person. According to the magazine, Tiger mom's are probably the reason why China's economy is rising to the top these days. My side on these though is that sometimes tiger mom's also need to show some soft side to their kids and lesser verbal abuse as it may ruin their self esteem.

I've heard about this already. Some of the disciplines mentioned sound very abusive. Not allowing a child to eat or drink? That just sounds wrong to me. I don't think children need to have that kind of abusive push in order to succeed. And I have to wonder if the children are happy and living their dreams or just the parent's dreams.
