Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Discussing Controversial Claims for Strict Childrearing

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, offers her differing opinion on recently published memoir of motherhood methods.

NEW YORK, NY – February 14, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website about Amy Chua’s book, The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. The blog, titled “Warrior Mom Versus Tiger Mom” explores the comparison of Chua’s claims to proper child upbringing to her own personal beliefs on what young adults need to contribute value to our society’s future.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Excuse me for speaking bluntly, but I’m not one to hold back my true opinions… Yale graduate and professor, Amy Chua, is full of shit in her published memoir about Chinese mothering philosophy in her book The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. Making claims that tough love and strict parenting techniques are the best way to produce successful young adults, her views have drawn much attention and controversy.”

“I’ll give you my personal opinion, as an educated professional, who is also a mother. We need to realize that there are many ways to perform the role of Mother. There is no one right way from one culture that supersedes all others. I mean, really, so what if your kid has high SATs and is a violin virtuoso! What does that do to stop wars and end poverty? Do we want every kid to be a clone of ever other kid?” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
