At Last, Someone Else Agrees With Me
Imagine my glee when I picked up The New York Times Sunday Styles section and saw that they also wrote a piece about it.
At first it seemed to just be an interview with the authors, but the reporter got some experts, and Asians at that, who said that maybe the tricks that Soo and Jane recommend aren't the best idea. And how would Soo and Jane know, anyway? They don't even have any kids? Who are they to dole out parenting advice.
I don't know why this book bothers me so much. I guess it's just that the idea of forcing a kid to do math problems when he'd rather be playing his saxophone disturbs me, as it should.
But I digress...
