Dr. Annie Abram and Leslie Bennetts, a former NYT foreign correspondent, Vanity Fair contributor, and author of "The Feminine Mistake," will talk about the controversial parenting style Amy Chua presented in a recent Wall Street Journal article summarizing her book “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother." Columnist David Brooks commented: "In her book, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” Chua delivers a broadside against American parenting even as she mocks herself for her own extreme “Chinese” style. She says American parents lack authority and produce entitled children who aren’t forced to live up to their abilities." This Wall Street Journal article produced such a vitriolic response that the WSJ published a follow-up article allowing Amy Chua to respond to her critics.
