Default Re: Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior

Strictly speaking, yes, it seems that Chinese mothers are producing more productive children. Morally, on the other hand... I'm sorry, I must just be a spoiled little kid, but from my viewpoint I really find it hard to stomach that people could praise that sort of thing. I can understand increased strictness to an extent (a fine example are my own cousins, whose mother employs a similar - but not as extreme - parenting style with good results), and sidestepping certain touchy subjects is not a desirable practice, but really... would it really kill you to allow your child some slack? Oh yes, heavens forbid you make your kids breakfast on Saturday morning. It's because you genuinely love them, not because you're expecting a 105 on their next science test.
