Yale Law Prof., Amy Chua has created a storm in the US and Canada with her book about a very directive style of parenting she calls Tiger Mom Parenting. I've been thinking a lot about how much I want to direct my kids" activities.. things like music lessons and sports.. How much is too much? Is a very hand on style of mothering actually good for kids as they get older?
I wrote a bit about Amy Chua's approach here..

I'd love to hear what you think.

Perhaps as our kids get older we favour a more laid back approach to child rearing. I call it benign neglect!
