OVERVIEW

Recently, there has been much discussion on the best way to raise children. Amy Chua’s book The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother has brought this topic to national, and indeed, global attention. On the one hand, there is the permissive, self-esteem focused approach that is often practiced in modern day America. On the other, there is the discipline, respect and order based approach that is found in many Asian cultures such as China and Korea.

While the debate is often seen as one between the rise of Asia versus the decline of the U.S., in fact, this battle arises from two fundamentally different philosophical views. Indeed, this book is designed to help bridge this gap and to introduce to American readers the thoughts of China’s greatest philosopher, Confucius.

It was Confucius who first wrote down the intellectual foundations of this philosophical view. And yet, strangely enough, his writing are still not very well known in the U.S. Very few, even educated American have actually read Confucius even once. This is unlike the case in China, where Confucius is read and reread with the utmost reverence. By reading Confucius, we too can gain an appreciation for how to create disciplined, respectful and happy children as well as a disciplined, respectful and happy society.

The Confucian Sayings must be read by all who wish to understand the Asian approach to raising children and to building a respectful society. Should it be taken wholesale and simply grafted onto our own families as is? Of course not. Instead, it should be read, reread, understood and adapted, so that we can create the best of both worlds for our families and for our country ... one that combines the discipline of the East with the creativity and freedoms of the West.
