    Tiger moms causing low self-esteem in children

    Demanding parents may believe that strict parenting can make their kids succeed, but a new study has claimed that "tiger moms" are actually contributing to the children's low self-esteem and high levels of depression.

    In her book 'Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother', Chinese author Amy Chua had suggested that highpressure parenting of Asians helps kids succeed both academically and in pastimes. But, the new research by Desiree Qin of Michigan State University found that the high achievers are actually frustrated with parents' demands and are more anxious and depressed than others.

    Prof Qin, who studied Chinese-American students at elite High School in New York, said that success and happiness do not have to be mutually exclusive. "Amy said Western children are not happier than Chinese ones. But at the same time, research from our study does show that when parents place a lot of pressure on their kids, the children are less happy," Qin was quoted as saying.
