Influenced by "Tiger mother"? Apr 29, 2011

从今年 Bakers Kawai Piano Competition 的获奖名单看来,其中华裔占很大比例。不知这些华裔孩子的家长是否也是在实施‘虎妈式教育’?

(虽然,这次大学生组的获奖者中没有华裔,但可能是因为那些获奖者实在太强了。他们是钢琴系的学生,甚至在全国性比赛中都得过奖。)

80年代我第一次来美出差时,美国公司里一些来自台湾的华裔工程师及其家属盛情为我们组织了一次联欢会。会上,他们的一些只有七、八岁的小孩轮流给我们表演弹钢琴,都弹得很好,令我们印象极其深刻。看来,‘虎妈式教育’由来已久。

Excerpt: 'Battle Hymn of The Tiger Mother' by Amy Chua

Here are some things my daughters, Sophia and Louisa, were never allowed to do:
...
...
- play any instrument other than the piano or violin
- not play the piano or violin.

"望子成龙" Apr 29, 2011

“虎妈式教育” 我以前倒没听说过,几个月前乍看到新闻报导标题中 "Tiger Mothers" 一词时, 我还以为是在谈“母老虎”呢。 My initial thought was, what Chinese woman in her right mind would like to be compared to a female tiger?

A couple of months ago, I accidentally tuned into the program of this woman professor being interviewed by Charlie Rose. My impression of her wasn't that favorable, 'cause I felt she was feeding into an old stereotype about Chinese Americans that wasn't necessarily true. She was very proud of the strict parenting she prescribed for her kids, since it may have worked for her. But IMO, her methods were suffocating, and in general unhealthy for a child's growth and upbringing.

要严格但不能过分 Apr 29, 2011

在美国的华裔家长普遍对孩子的教育要求比较严格。不过,我也觉得这个‘虎妈’有点过分。

她的女儿 Sophia 能同时被哈佛大学和耶鲁大学录取并不完全是她的功劳。主要还是因为她女儿自己的努力以及从小学到高中学校老师的关怀和培养。

Yueyin,

I agree. Of course parents play an important role in a child's education. But a good amount of credit should be given to society as a whole and the individual's own effort.

昨晚看 ABC 电视节目 "What Would You Do?" May 14, 2011

It's a show that comes up with different scenarios of mock situations, and uses hidden cameras to capture the public reaction.


See the strong disapproval of an Oriental woman who publicly berates her child for getting an A- on a school assignment ...

http://abc.go.com/watch/what-would-you-do/SH5555951/VD55126936/what-would-you-do--513

The funny thing is the only person who says it's okay is an old Asian man.

That's why I completely disagree with Amy Chua's generalization, or stereotype of the so-called "Tiger Mother". According to her Wikipedia page, her parents were ethnic Chinese from the Philippines. While I'm not familiar with that part of the world, this kind of parenting was definitely not the norm in Mainland China, at least while I was living there. It really borders on child abuse, as one of the bystander women aptly put.

Just one step away May 14, 2011

I remember the news that a Chinese immigrant slapped his little daughter on her face in a park just because she lost her necklace, not expensive though. Someone nearby immediately called the police and the man was arrested as soon as a police officer arrived. His daughter was put in custody of a social worker. In the end, the man agreed to be deported back to China with his entire family to avoid child abuse charges that could be pressed against him, and to reunite with his daughter.

"A Surprise in Texas" May 15, 2011

Your clips reminded me of a documentary I saw on PBS a while ago about the 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Excellent program! ...

I just checked; the DVD is now available ...

Steve,

"A Surprise in Texas" is also a surprise in Colorado! I bought the DVD, A Surprise in Texas - The 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, for Helen, but just got a chance to watch it. It is really a big surprise to me that Nobuyuki Tsujii, the First Prize co-winner, was born blind! He is really a talented pianist and composer! I was deeply moved by his performance. It is so true: where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Nobuyuki Tsujii (born September 13, 1988) is a Japanese pianist and composer who shared the First Prize at the Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009 in a tie with co-winner Haochen Zhang of China.

Nobuyuki Tsujii was born blind but was gifted with a talent for music. At the age of two, he began to play Jingle Bells on a toy piano after his mother had been humming the tune. He began his formal study of piano at the age of four.

Talent May 15, 2011

Yueyin,

Indeed. All the contestants featured in the program were impressive. But the young Japanese man was particularly so.

A neighbor boy we had in China was also born blind. The kid played a mean harmonica. He had extremely keen hearing that compensated for his blindness.

当看到 Nobuyuki Tsujii 表演结束,台下观众全体起立,全场响起经久不息的热烈掌声和欢呼声时,当 Nobuyuki 的母亲和钢琴老师一次又一次地分别扶他出来谢幕时,我就想,他获得这样的荣誉完全当之无愧。据报道,评判委员会主席特地关照全体评判委员,不要考虑他是盲人的因素而完全根据他的表演水平来评分;Nobuyuki 自己也表示不希望在评分时考虑他是盲人的因素。不难想象,与并列第一的张昊辰相比,Nobuyuki 达到今天这样的成就,必须付出数倍甚至更多的艰苦努力。

张昊辰与另一位进入前六名的中国选手吳迪(女)的表演也很出色。如今的中国与当年八亿人民只有八台样板戏的中国相比,真是不可同日而语!

Steve,

你这话让我想起了阿炳创作的《二泉映月》。

第二天,小泽征尔来到中央音乐学院专门聆听了该院17岁女生姜建华用二胡演奏的原曲《二泉映月》,他感动得热泪盈眶,呢喃地说:“如果我听了这次演奏,我昨天绝对不敢指挥这个曲目,因为我并没有理解这首音乐,因此,我没有资格指挥这个曲目……这种音乐只应跪下来听。”说着说着,真的要跪下来。他还说:“断肠之感这句话太合适了”。

他老先生坐在乐团当中静听演奏,挺有意思的。
