    ZYWICKI: Roar of the lion father

    Among the chattering classes, Yale law profes- sor Amy Chua has sparked recent debate for her controversial new memoir on the virtues of her Chinese parenting style, "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother." Released to less acclaim, but one hopes greater readership, is another essay on parenting, by Anthony Esolen: "Ten Ways To Destroy the Imagination of Your Child." If Ms. Chua's book stands as an indictment of modern American parenting from the perspective of a Chinese mother, Mr. Esolen's book is also an indictment of modern American parenting - but, ironically, for being insufficiently American.
