    Some years ago, I read, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and was like many readers fascinated by the confrontational book Even at the time, I felt that some of what that book said was useful, even if that parenting style would never be for me However, some years on, we are given this book by author, Maya Thiagarajan Thiagarajan was born in India, before moving to the United States, where she lived and taught, before relocating, with her young family, to Singapore She is perfectly placed to write [...]

    Some years ago, I read, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and was like many readers fascinated by the confrontational book Even at the time, I felt that some of what that book said was useful, even if that parenting style would never be for me However, some years on, we are given this book by author, Maya Thiagarajan Thiagarajan was born in India, before moving to the United States, where she lived and taught, before relocating, with her young family, to Singapore She is perfectly placed to write [...]

    When was the last time you read a book about education and parenting that really had you thinking and making changes to the way you do things in your home Beyond The Tiger Mom East West Parenting for the Global Age has had this affect on me A lot of this book compares the East and the West Not in a negative way, but ways in which parents and schools raise their children and their beliefs in how to create a successful child and society She then gathers the best ideas from both cultures and gives [...]

    I ve always seen myself as a Tiger dad I know saying that has a lot of negative connotations But I have big dreams for my toddler First, he s going to get into Harvard, then either make the NBA or play Major League Baseball, whichever pays him After a hall of fame career, he ll transition into politics where he ll be the first Asian American president.That s why when the book Beyond the Tiger Mom by Maya Thiagarajan was up for review, I jumped at the chance I figured it d be good for me to lear [...]

    This book really made me think about how I want to educate my daughter I like how the author includes ideas at the end of each chapter for supplementing the style of education you naturally lean towards Eastern or Western.

    I loved this well written, well researched Gave me lots of good ideas for parenting I bought a Japanese abacus after reading this.

    The Chinese tv series Tiger Mom 2015 tries to answer the question why Chinese mothers are superior to others In Beyond the Tiger Mom East West Parenting for the Global Age, Maya Thiagarajan, a born and breed Indian, landed 5 years ago in Singapore after years of education and teaching in the U.S looks at differences between Western and Asian parenting and education styles Interviews, literature, personal experiences as parent and teacher, and tips is packed in this rich and inspiring book.Why is [...]

    Basically this book can be summarised as English education Western style is goodMaths education Asian style is goodFamily values Asian style is goodThere is a lot of personal opinions so it s not for everyone but still an interesting perspective from an educator mum who lived in a couple of different countries.

    Must Read Great book It had wonderful stories about culture and education A must read for parents especially if you have young children.

    Maya Thiagarajan writes about both the overt and subtle differences between Asian and Western parenting today, and offers her rich perspectives on how best to educate and nurture our children for the coming age.What hit me first was her well researched journey into the inner psyche of a spectrum of Asian parents Maya makes it clear from the start that she does not mean to make sweeping generalisations, tarring all Indian parents, for instance, with the same brush Rather, her observations are der [...]

    Best Book Ever.This educator and South Asian educated author compares and contrast education methodology and goals in an Eastern versus Western handbook for parents and educators She handles the touchy areas with grace and aplomb with a great deal of rigorous data to support her evaluations of the cultural and social paradigms for various educational systems Are the stereotypes real or imagined Are Western children going to miss the science and maths boat due to our educational patterns in the U [...]

    This is such a good read and one that causes a parent to reflect on her parenting, education and family beliefs The author accurately described the mentality of the Asian moms and I couldn t help but agree with what she wrote Being an Asian mom myself, I find myself feeling anxious about getting my children to start reading at an early age and therefore find ways to create a math rich home so that they could understand concepts early and find math in their daily lives She also provided an honest [...]

    This is a wonderful book comparing the ways parents parent in Asia versus the way they parent in America on such topics as education math focus vs language focus, memorization or not , extracurricular activities, how to treat their elders and even the language used when talking to children Maya Thiagarajan as an Indian who spent 15 years in America before moving to Singapore has a wonderful and unique perspective on straddling the divide between east and west but she also acknowledges, clearly a [...]

    I wish I had read it 10 years earlier when my children were at the age this book would have been even relevant to us Still, I am happy I read it now As parents we have deeply pondered many of these issues Maya not just flags them but presents different points of view, helps the reader weigh pros and cons of each perspective and even references relevant studies and articles to substantiate her arguments Without alienating some readers with overly academic language, Maya s simple and anecdotal ap [...]

    I simply disagree with the author when it comes to extra homework administered by parents, I strongly believe that there are ways to live than just STEM, and I do not think that children should be made to obey elderly no matter what I am glad that the author is able to write how important the balance is and how crucial reading for fun is However, I do not want to run my family like a business and treat children as products The author s attitude is too strict for my western background Too much p [...]

    I found this book eye opening It would be easy to fall into broad stereotypes when approaching these subjects, and I would say most popular literature makes no attempt to avoid this but this book is thoughtful and even handed and a very readable balance of human anecdotes and interviews poised beside research and data I read it hoping for some tips on parenting and instead I found that it changed the way I view my own experience growing up and my role as a parent now I can t recommend it highly [...]

    Although I am neither a parent nor an educator, I found this book to be a thought provoking read Offering perspectives from both North American and Asian educational and child rearing styles, it helped me gain insight into some of the patterns I ve come across living in a multicultural society It is well written, and helpful in making suggestions for bringing out the best from both systems.

    An intelligent, thought provoking and balanced examination of the collisions and opportunities that can occur when East meets West in the world of parenting and education The author draws upon personal experience and research to offer some eye opening observations for parents and educators alike An engaging readrongly recommended.

    Beyond the Tiger Mom is very intelligently presented and written with much empathy for mums like you and me The author speaks with such a warm and re assuring voice, presenting you facts and anecdotes I highly recommend it for mothers who believe in teaching children grit but also in allowing them to find their own unique place under the sun.

    True information gathered first handAs an American teacher in America, I have had a similar experiences with parents and students from Pakistan, China, and India mostly and have learned what was discussed in this book A blending of the best ideas from East to West would benefit children, education, and society.

    A very well written book As a parent of young kids aged 8 to 12 we always interested to know ways to help our kids do better with their work This book has loads of suggestions ideas Worth reading again and again.
