Segment A: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
On the first half of our program, Cathy’s joined by Yale law professor and author Amy Chua, whose parenting memoir, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” was described by the Washington Post as “the single cultural moment of 2011.” We’ll talk with Chua about her parenting philosophy and how to survive a media maelstrom.

Segment B: Taking Back Childhood
The average American child spends 66% more time watching television than attending school – and the images that they are digesting are often age-inappropriate. On the second half of our program, we’ll talk with the author of “Taking Back Childhood” about how parents can best navigate the social currents of our media-saturated environment.
