No sleepovers, TV, computer games or B's

You think you're a tough parent? You've got nothing on former IdeaFestival presenter, author and Yale law professor Amy Chua. "Why Chinese Mothers are Superior," Wall Street Journal:

There are all these new books out there portraying Asian mothers as scheming, callous, overdriven people indifferent to their kids' true interests. For their part, many Chinese secretly believe that they care more about their children and are willing to sacrifice much more for them than Westerners, who seem perfectly content to let their children turn out badly. I think it's a misunderstanding on both sides. All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. The Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that.

I'd say so. Read reaction from at Wired, Huffington Post, Slate and the whole Google news cache for "Amy Chua" - guess what's on top? Finally, watch her IdeaFestival Conversations video on diversity as strategic asset.
