NAIS

Tiger Mothers and Helicopter Parents

Much conversation last week at the NAIS conference about the role of parenting.  Two books that were compelling were Amy Chua’s, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.  You can see an interview with Amy on Charlie Rose. Wendy Mogel was a presenter and offered an interesting perspective in her books, The Blessing of a B Minus and The Blessing of a Skinned Knee.
