The Three Virtues of Effective Parenting: Lessons from Confucius on the Power of Benevolence, Wisdom, and Courage by Shirley Yuen [in AsianWeek]

Three Virtues of Effective ParentingWith all the endless shelves of parenting titles, why not tout one that champions Asian influences? One major diversion, however, from traditional discipline tactics attributed to Confucius: While the “family cane” might have worked for parents in China 5000 years ago, Yuen refers to corporal punishment as an “unwise decision” and in no way condones physical violence. For those of us who grew up with over-the-top strict Asian parents, that’s welcome progress indeed.
