Original ‘Tiger Mom’ says she feels ‘regret’ about being too hard on her kids, still believes in excellence

Amy Chua She, famous for writing the book “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” said that while she still believes in pushing for excellence, she regrets how harshly she treated her two daughters. 

“I still believe achieving excellence can bring a lot of benefits, and I’m glad I instilled a sense of grit in my kids,” she said, according to a recent feature from the Daily Mail. “But the things I regret more are the harsh things I said to them and losing my temper.”

More than 10 years after the original book was published, She, a professor at Yale Law School, has reflected on her life and her parenting style, for which she was dubbed a “Tiger Mom.”
