preview for tomorrow's column

Amy Chua's memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, is not only raising eyebrows, but has many mothers raising their voice- including me.

Raised by Chinese immigrant parents, she chose to raise her children also by the ways of her ancestors.

Here are some things Amy Chua would never allow her daughters to do:

• have a playdate

• be in a school play

• complain about not being in a school play

• not be the #1 student in every subject except gym and drama

• play any instrument other than the piano or violin

• not play the piano or violin

The supreme goal is to produce the most successful child.
