I’ve Heard of Helicoptor Moms, but Tiger Mom?

Amy Chua the author of a book titled “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom” and she’s causing quite a stir among American parents.  Time Magazine references many of the “incidents” outlined in her book including one during which she forced her then seven year old daughter to practice a piano piece until she learned to play it.  Right through dinner, with no water or bathroom breaks.    I haven’t read the book, but there is certainly a lot of buzz about it on the internet as well as television.  It was even featured on Nightline, check out the video after the jump:

According to Time Magazine:

Chua, a petite 48-year-old who carries off a short-skirted wardrobe that could easily be worn by her daughters (now 15 and 18), gave as good as she got. “To be perfectly honest, I know that a lot of Asian parents are secretly shocked and horrified by many aspects of Western parenting,” including “how much time Westerners allow their kids to waste — hours on Facebook and computer games — and in some ways, how poorly they prepare them for the future,” she told Vieira with a toss of her long hair. “It’s a tough world out there.”
