How do you think children should be reared - by nurturing or strict training? See what the author believes and whether she was able to live up to her own standards for herself as a Chinese-American mother. Attempting to raise her children in the Chinese way while living in a Western country just might be expected to cause some friction between mom and child, so find out how she and her family survived her childrearing philosophy. The book discussion is open to the public; please feel welcome to attend if you have read the book or are interested in hearing more about it.
