Chinese kids are famous for being obedient, with their days full of homework and endless activities. Much planning and preparation goes into a child even before they are born.

Chinese Tiger Parenting Talk

What is “tiger” parenting? How does it affect children?

As far as we know, the term “tiger parenting” did not exist until the publication of Amy Chua's (2011) book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother . Amy Chua, a Yale law professor with two daughters, writes about her Chinese heritage and the way in which it has influenced her parenting choices. Her daughters are not allowed to watch TV or play computer games, have sleepovers or play dates, or get any grade less than an A. Chua claims that these strict policies are the reason why her children have been so successful in school and in their music studies and argues that this type of parenting is common in Asian families.

Chinese kids are famous for being obedient, with their days full of homework and endless activities. Much planning and preparation goes into a child even before they are born. So why do Chinese parents push their children so hard? What subjects do the children study and what activities occupy their time? How does the Chinese education system work?

 

During this program, we will show you Chinese curriculum books, homework, and exam papers. We will learn about China’s education system from kindergarten through university. If you’re curious about the lives of “tiger kids” join us for this engaging talk.
