just a quick rant here:
I cannot stand the tiger mother craze that swepped the nation a week back. It seemed like everything from school, to the Colbert Report was covering this shit.
I think what gets me most agitated is the instant memedom this woman has obtained for simply being strict.
I was raised in a strict household. Was I ever beaten? no, my mother enjoyed emotional abuse rather than physical. I can honestly say i would have rather been beaten. The emotional scars these children will be left with will haunt them for the rest of their lives. And I'm sure, these tactics could have worked in China, but here in A-Murika, where even the fattest of workers can be happy, they are just going to wind up dissapointed. All-in-all fuck the media, and fuck the establishment
