Chinese Mothers: Eastern and Western Parenting

Posted on 14th January 2011 in Tampa English Tutor

Today, I was bouncing back and forth between sport talk radio and Rush Limbaugh on 970 WFLA when I heard Rush talking about an article in the Wall Street Journal on Chinese Mothers and whether they are superior to mothers in the West.

The WSJ article has elicited a few thousand comments, partially driven by Rush’s mention of it.

As someone who is mostly hired by parents who are recent immigrants, I believe the article is accurate when it notes the difference in how important academic success is in the households of people who parent the Chinese way.

For those interested in the subject, here is the article: Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior.
