Since Casper, who is now nearly seven and a half, was born, we've had: Attachment Parenting, Helicopter Parents, Slacker Moms, Free-Range Kids, Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety (i.e. ADD Kids), Indigo Children ... and I'm sure I've forgotten some.

So I can barely raise an eyebrow at the Tiger Mom.

But I did get Casper to rewrite her homework more neatly, with spelling corrections, tonight.  (Report card came home yesterday, and she's doing better in her problem areas but neatness and spelling remain the big issues.  Still an A+ art student.)

Okay, really? The indigo children thing? That wasn't some extended joke or something? (That was the only one I'd never heard of.)

There was a book. I read about a third of it one day in B & N, while Chuckles played with trains. It was... like bad sci-fi that had been mis-shelved in the parenting section.

Tiger mom is setting us back decades in racial issues. I roll my eyes.
