Amy Chua, bestselling author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, nursed her two daughters in a strict Chinese upbringing. This cost her a few pounces and wrestling matches in her den while demanding success from her rebellious 13-year-old cub. A tigress is responsible for the protection and care of her young, but even mature tigers can learn a thing or two from their young. Chua’s book speaks to parents feeling both defeated and humbled as they travel down an unbeaten path of parenting transformation. Join the author at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Highland Park United Methodist Church, 3300 Mockingbird Lane. See what the culture clash parenting debate is all about as she shares her comic memoir at Authors Live!, a free event open to the public.
