The editor of New York Family asked a few people to weigh in on this wacky Wall Street Journal article by the author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. My reaction was basically "duh" and "ew" and "eh." Here's the whole discussion, which includes far more sophisticated participants.
But really the whole "catfight," as it's being called, feels pretty contrived. I take the author's cheery follow-up as proof that she was just trying to do to militant attachment parents what peanut butter does to the allergic.
