Remember Her?

Amy Chua really got part of the world in an uproar with her article and book.  Yesterday, I finally read her book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. Laying in a hammock in my mother's yard, made for the perfect afternoon to begin and finish the book.

It was a good read and I recommend it to you. Ms. Chua definitely learned that Chinese parenting doesn't work for all children and I applaud her for loving her daughter more than loving being a Chinese mother. I could learn to be more of a Chinese mother.  But Ms. Chua could definitely benefit from knowing Jesus Christ who loves her, died for her, and who gives the meaning to "living life to its fullest."
