Headed Out

The boarding pass has been printed, bag has been packed, Tiger Mom book in tow, and in a few short hours this little lady is going to take her seat by the window and let the wind carry her to Chi-town. So long warm NC weather and hello cold & wet Midwest. Now where is my pink umbrella?!

  1. Lovely skirt Dea, and safe travels to you. Enjoy your trip! Interesting reading choice. I have not read the book, but everything I have heard about it causes me to be really concerned. I am a counselor for young children, have been for 9 years, and I see the children of too many "tigers mothers" – children who are stressed, overscheduled and pressured beyond belief – some to the point of considering drastic measures to end their life.I saw the interview with Amy Chua and I guess I'm a bit concerned about any mother that would reject a card her child made because it wasn't good enough. Striving for excellence is great, but I see firsthand every day the results of parents pushing children to get top grades. I also counsel many children who feel they only have value if they get excellent grades, because their parents put such an emphasis on grades. So I am a little concerned by what I hear about the book and the impact it may have – let us know what you think.

  2. You are looking as great as ever Dea. Enjoy your trip. I heard an interview with the author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom. Amazing what her daughter had to say. As a child she hated her Mother. As a grown woman she came to have deep love and respect for the difficult choices her Mother made. Please tell us what you think.
