Read more...It'S Like Inside The Family, And Whether They Could Do It Too. Well, I Can Tell Them, Because I'Ve Done It...Amy Chua'S Daughters, Sophia And Louisa (Lulu) Were Polite, Interesting And Helpful, They Were Two Years Ahead Of Their Classmates In Maths And Had Exceptional Musical Abilities. But Sophia And Lulu Were Never Allowed To Attend A Sleepover, Be In A School Play, Choose Their Own Extracurricular Activities, Get Any Grade Less Than An A, And Not Be The #1 Student In Every Subject (Except Gym And Drama). And They Had To Practice Their Instruments For Hours Every Day, As Well As In School Breaks And On Family Holidays. The Chinese-Parenting Model Certainly Seemed To Produce Results.

But Instead, It'S About A Bitter Clash Of Cultures, A Fleeting Taste Of Glory, And How You Can Be Humbled By A Thirteen-Year-Old. Witty, Entertaining And Provocative, This Is A Unique And Important Book That Will Transform Your Perspective Of Parenting Forever.
