Author and Professor Amy Chua garnered a lot of attention following the release of her book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Wall Street Journal article "Why Chinese Mothers are Superior". The article in particular struck a chord with the American public–it has been read over a million times– as Chua seemed to take a jab at American parenting.
As she told Kiran Chetry last week on American Morning, Chua claims traditional Chinese parenting, which stresses discipline, hard work and perseverance, leads to successful and competitive children. TIME magazine's latest issue out today puts the effectiveness of Chua's strict parenting methods to the test. However, though the merit of such methods is still up for debate as many take issue with Chua's somewhat harsh approach.
Kiran Chetry sits down with Annie Murphy Paul, Contributor for TIME Magazine and author of "Origins", to discuss TIME's take on topic of parenting.
