Tiger Parenting, Asian-Heritage Families, and Child/Adolescent Well-Being
About the special issue
Amy Chua's memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (2011, New York, NY, Penguin Books) drew a tremendous amount of media attention that thrust Asian American parents into the limelight.
In this special issue, leading scholars studying parenting in Asian-heritage families use Chua's notion of the tiger mother as a launching pad to examine aspects of parenting that may be unique to Asian-heritage (encompassing both Asian American and native Asian) families.
The goals of this special issue are to examine the prevalence and impact of tiger parenting and to unpack the complexity of Asian-heritage parenting and its relation to child and adolescent well-being.
