I submitted a post a few weeks ago regarding Chinese versus American mothers and how parenting styles were different. Since that time–the media, psychologists, sociologists, and other professionals have weighed in on a number of factors related to how the style of parenting may have detrimental or beneficial effects. I think passing judgment is inappropriate given we are not currently living in China nor can we say what works for one family may not be beneficial for another. However, this article posted below highlights how this particular type of childrearing left “scars” for one Chinese man.

Enjoy the reading and again always consider how YOU can make the right choices for YOUR family.
