I read about this book in one of the polish newspapers and almost immediately┬á ordered “Battle Hymn…” in my library. I got number 92 and finally after several months I got a book for three weeks. “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” had a tremendous impression on me. I’m far from being a Chinese mother (representing the Chinese model of parenting, not nationality), I do not approve educational methods of Amy Chua, but on the other hand, many parents to not have any control over their kids which is not good either.

I recommend this book even if I have different views on raising children.

Time goes too fast

I can not believe it’s already July 14. I had no time to write here. I had doctors appointments. Last sunday we had an international potluck. We met with our neighbors in our home. We ate brazilian, indian and polish food. I love garbanzo bean dish made by my neighbor and friend. I love guava paste too (J.thanks again).
Today I had a busy day too. I woke up a 5.30 a.m. and went for a bike ride. When I came back I took a nap.
I went shopping in the afternoon. I bought some gifts for my nephews and a doll for my daughter. She has a favorite doll “Baby born”, but the doll is broken. Today I found in Ross “My little baby born” ( is smaller).
I plan to give gift for my daughter during our the trip to Poland. I can not wait to see her happiness.
