Tiger Parenting Tells of a mothers endeavors to push her two daughters to succeed and, in the process, deny them a social life, sleepovers, and play dates. According to Chua, tiger mothers are mothers of Chinese (or other ethnic) origin who are highly controlling and authoritarian, denying their children free time, play dates, and extracurricular activities in order to drive them to high levels of success at any cost. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother By Amy Chua (2011)
Is Tiger Parenting Real? Yes and No Tiger Parenting exist but it is not common among Asian American Families. Tiger Parenting does not lead to the best academic and Socio-emotional outcomes Studies collectively show that there is much more variation. Studies suggest that Asian-heritage parents are also warm, supportive, and loving toward their children, which has not been emphasized (and perhaps even de-emphasized) in the literature.
The Role of the Father Traditional views of the Asian American father The father is the master of the family and the primary breadwinner. Strict authoritarian Un-emotional Contemporary Asian-American fathers tend to avoid this role. On the whole, Asian-American fathers desire a closer and emotional relationship with their young children. However, they still emphasize academic achievement more than European fathers do. Studies done only done within the middle class Working class fathers (authoritarian) tend to focus solely on grades whereas the middle class father (authorative) emphasized philosophies that educated the whole child (Morality & Character).
