Tiger Parenting (or Chinese Parenting)

This term came to light when Amy Chua's book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, was published in 2011. In the book she describes herself as a tough, disciplinarian mother, and tiger parents follow suit. These parents are known for being being strict and for putting their children's academic careers before anything else.
