內容簡介

  這是一個媽媽、兩個女兒、兩隻狗的故事。這個故事原本要說的是中國父母教養小孩比西方父母高明之處。


  然而後來說的卻是激烈的文化衝突、一閃而逝的光榮滋味,以及一個十三歲孩子是如何挫掉虎媽的銳氣的。看完蔡美兒教授的經驗,你將對東西方教育方式的差異有更深的體悟,也將重新思考,什麼才是真正適合孩子的教養之道。


  所有的父母都想做對兒女最有利的事。西方父母盡可能尊重子女的個體性,鼓勵他們追求自己真正感興趣的事,提供正面的支持與培育的環境;反之,中國人認為,保護子女的上上之策,就是讓他們為未來做好準備,讓他們看清楚自己能做什麼,讓他們具備技能、好習慣,以及自信,因為這些是別人拿不走的。


  虎媽認為,童年就是訓練期。對蘇菲亞和露露來說,這表示要上中文課、練習數學,每天還要練兩、三小時樂器(連出門度假也不間斷,周末時練習時間還要加倍)。然而得到的成果說明了一切:這兩個女孩子都是非常優秀的學生:有禮貌、樂於助人、成績優異;露露贏得康乃狄克州小提琴神童獎,蘇菲亞則十四歲就在卡內基音樂廳登台演奏。


  然而在這些成就的背後,卻要付出極大的代價。虎媽在一次練習中,威脅要燒掉蘇菲亞的填充動物玩偶;從露露三歲起,虎媽就對這個任性的小女孩毫不留情,自此兩人的戰況愈演愈烈。然而虎媽對自己的要求和對女兒的要求一樣高,她的犧牲──付出大量時間和精力、甘心忍受傷心痛苦,在在表現出她對女兒深深的愛。


  《虎媽的戰歌》顯露出東、西方教養世界觀的衝突,然而歸根究柢,這個故事說的其實是一個母親對兩個女兒所懷抱的希望,以及她心甘情願為投資她們的未來所做的冒險。

" E]ntertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking."--The New York Times Book Review

At once provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother ignited a global parenting debate with its story of one mother's journey in strict parenting. Amy Chua argues that Western parenting tries to respect and nurture children's individuality, while Chinese parents typically believe that arming children with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence prepares them best for the future. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother chronicles Chua's iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, the Chinese way - and the remarkable, sometimes heartbreaking results her choice inspires. Achingly honest and profoundly challenging, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is one of the most talked-about books of our times.

"Few have the guts to parent in public. Amy Chua]'s memoir is brutally honest, and her willingness to share her struggles is a gift. Whether or not you agree with her priorities and approach, she should be applauded for raising these issues with a thoughtful, humorous and authentic voice." --Time Magazine

" A] riveting read... Chua's story is far more complicated and interesting than what you've heard to date -- and well worth picking up... I guarantee that if you read the book, there'll undoubtedly be places where you'll cringe in recognition, and others where you'll tear up in empathy." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother hit the parenting hot button, but also a lot more, including people's complicated feelings about ambition, intellectualism, high culture, the Ivy League, strong women and America's standing in a world where China is ascendant. Chua's conviction that hard work leads to inner confidence is a resonant one."--Chicago Tribune

"Readers will alternately gasp at and empathize with Chua's struggles and aspirations, all the while enjoying her writing, which, like her kid-rearing philosophy, is brisk, lively and no-holds-barred. This memoir raises intriguing, sometimes uncomfortable questions about love, pride, ambition, achievement and self-worth that will resonate among success-obsessed parents... Readers of all stripes will respond to Battle Hymn of the] Tiger Mother."--The Washington Post
