She is a prof of law at Yale, the most selective law school in the country. I heard her on NPR today. It was hard to contain my horror. She confuses success in objective things with life success. I know only too well there is a vast difference. It certainly sounded like child abuse to me. Chinese culture is different,, not superior. Most of the things she wants her daughters to accomplish have to do with her own face in the culture.
Broadly, I think we are raising brats and that the pendulum swung too far to being liberal in parenting. Concrete life skills are needed. I can't believe she is a law prof. b/c she is so extreme. A mixture of the best of Western and Eastern culture would be nice.
Don't get me started about community colleges calling themselves college. Why can't Spanish people learn English when Chinese, Russian and other immigrants learn English as soon as possible. Spanish does not mean Spanish speaking. We are probably seeing people on the bottom rungs of society who immigrate. Go to West Virginia and see all the whites who can not do simple math or read. It is chilling.
Balance is a good ideal.
