An interesting response to M's Chua and her metholody, courtesy of the NYT opinion pages:

However you look at it, one must wonder if any love is involved in Chua's heart. My own Jewish mother did just fine, for the 15 years I had her, because I never felt imperfect or flawed in her eyes, no matter how flawed or imperfect she knew I was. That's mothering. Not creating a delusion for us as we find our way in the world, but allowing us our failures and mistakes and all the things that help us grow into loving adults.
