It’s a sign of bravery  (Amy Chua Quotes) I saw my parents come over. They were immigrants, they had no money.

In some ways, I think the person that I am now, I think it’s good that I had that kind of tough upbringing.  (Amy Chua Quotes) I am definitely a Type A personality, always rushing around, trying to do too much, not good at just lying on the beach. But I’m so thankful for everything I have: wonderfully supportive parents and sisters, the best husband in the world, terrific students I love teaching and hanging out with, and above all, my two amazing daughters  (Amy Chua Quotes) I kind of - I like my life; I feel I have lots of opportunities. And my parents actually having had such high expectations for me - I would say it’s the greatest gift that anyone has ever given me. I complained a lot when I was little, but that’s how I feel now. And that’s why I tried to do the same with my two daughters  (Amy Chua Quotes) Parenting is the hardest thing I have ever done. I tried to find the balance between the strict, traditional Chinese way I was raised, which I think can be too harsh, and what I see as a tendency in the West to be too permissive and indulgent.

But as a parent, one of the worst things you can do for your child’s self-esteem is to let them give up. On the flip side, there’s nothing better for building confidence than learning you can do something you thought you couldn’t  (Amy Chua Quotes) You know, parenting is so personal. And we’re all afraid that we didn’t quite get it right. And it feels like the stakes are so high. By we - what if we made a mistake?  (Amy Chua Quotes) When I’m not the Tiger Mom, I’m a professor at Yale Law School, and if one thing is clear to me from years of teaching, it’s that there are many ways to produce fabulous kids. I have amazing students; some of them have strict parents, others have lenient parents, and many come from family situations that defy easy description  (Amy Chua Quotes) Westerners often laud their children as ‘talented’ or ‘gifted’, while Asian parents highlight the importance of hard work. And in fact, research performed by Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck has found that the way parents offer approval affects the way children perform, even the way they feel about themselves  (Amy Chua Quotes) Tiger parenting is all about raising independent, creative, courageous kids. In America today, there’s a dangerous tendency to romanticize creativity in a way that may undermine it  (Amy Chua Quotes) The Chinese model calls for giving your kids very little choice - and I’ve come to see that you can go too far with that. On the other hand, I also believe that Western parents sometimes give their young kids too much choice  (Amy Chua Quotes) Some parents let their kids sleep at other people’s houses, where they drink alcohol, watch TV for hours and God knows what else. But if you say you have to get all A’s and practice the violin for two hours, then they consider that abusive.

I would never do their homework for them. It’s all about: Take responsibility, don’t blame others. Be self-reliant. Never blame the teacher  (Amy Chua Quotes) For my senior prom, my father finally said I could go - as long as I was home by 9 P.M.! That was around the time that most people were heading out. When I was little I was so mad at them all the time. ‘Why can’t I do this?’ ‘Why are there so many rules?’ But looking back now, my parents gave me the foundation to have so many choices in life.  (Amy Chua Quotes) Don’t assume your child is weak. If you, the parent, assume that they can’t take anymore, what kind of signal are you sending them?  (Amy Chua Quotes) I really feel that most things are difficult at the beginning and they become fun, something you love, only after you’ve worked at them. Making children do something hard can, in the long run, be a great parental service.  (Amy Chua Quotes) Some people don’t need parental commitment, they will still come out great, but for others, parents can be critical in providing moral and academic guidance.  (Amy Chua Quotes) What the Chinese parent is conveying to the child is not that ‘you’ve got to get A’s or else I won’t like you.’ On the contrary, it’s, ‘I believe in you so much, I know that you can be excellent.’  (Amy Chua Quotes) I was raised by extremely strict - but also extremely loving - Chinese immigrant parents, and I had the most wonderful childhood!
