Full Episode Summary

Yale law professor Amy Chua discusses the differences between Eastern and Western parenting techniques and her new memoir, emBattle Hymn of the Tiger Motherem. All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. What Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother reveals is that the Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect your children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence. emBattle Hymn of the Tiger Motherem chronicles Chua's iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, her way—the Chinese way.moreless
