Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother sparks parenting row


battle-hymnExcellent, our first bookish controversy of 2011. The Barney Rubble is all about Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, an autobiographical study of why western parents are crap at bringing up kids, written by Yale law professor Amy Chua.

Sadly, Amy Chua called one of her two daughters Lulu so she is obviously off her rocker. I wouldn’t call a poodle Lulu, let alone a human being. The book reveals how Chua used the strict Chinese-style child-rearing model she inherited from her parents. The Guardian has story.
