First off, the tone and tenor of Dr. Dembo just sounded pedantic to me. Also, I absolutely hated that he so easily categorized a child as "not a student". What does that mean anyways? Every child is a student - everyone is a student... we all have different learning styles. If every child went to see Dr. Dembo, they would turn out to be the VERY antithesis of the children Tiger Moms hope to raise - accepting mediocrity and lacking discipline. I detest what Tiger Mom stands for, but in Dr. Dembo's office, there is no room for those who believe that practice - sometimes grueling, difficult, undesirable, not fun kind -makes perfect.
Nothing new or that interesting.
Her stories really didn't resonate with someone who has true self-esteem and worth issues.
