    I've come to the conclusion that what the tiger mom did was wrong or non optimal. first a person does best when they pursue their own dream. the dream to attend a particular school was hers not her children's and she did this at what cost? lack of play time play is underrated how many Americans don't seem to understand this either they over scheduled her kids time with lessons with Sports. play exercises the imagination Einstein as a child had a lot of free time to dream and to imagine. this was the foundation of what he was able to accomplish when people pursue their on passions they are happier and are able to contribute more. Solar Charger attended Harvard I doubt they're going to have much accomplishment after this. they are burned out.

    I think the missing element that is not classified here is LOVE. Does the child know s/he is loved and has that loving relationship with the parent? If so, the outcome is likely to be successful, whatever "profile" it fits.

    Following this "wind beneath the wings" analogy, to flight of aircraft, one always finds considerable and sudden faltering, and loss of control when the "ground effect" zone (enhancement of lift) is left, and aircraft/child must fend with free air.
