  • To an extent. Yes I was a "tiger mom" in some areas/way.. I was raised by a supreme "tiger mom".. lol.. I'm way more lax on somethings than she was.

    My mom was a "tiger mom" about everything and anything. Me. I was a tiger mom in some areas and not others. Mostly academic areas. I knew what my son was capable of, and below his capability level was unacceptable.

    If it matters. Yes, I am of Asian descent. I am of Indian descent. I know this whole "Tiger mom" thing has sprung from the book that has been recently released.

  • In some ways, yes I guess I am. I am strict with him when it comes to academics. He spends at least an hour everyday doing his workbook activities. This is after school and he is in pre-K. I expect him to do well and work with him on those things he is struggling with. I do give him free time, but academics comes first with me and always will. In sports he can choose if he wants to play or not but if he says he wants to he has to give his all for the entire season. He is not allowed to quit and he has to actually try.

  • No...........that's terrible about the card. How mean was that! I would never do that to my daughter and break her poor little heart! When she is older, we will be strict about her school work, but I still want her to have a childhood.
