On this episode of Up Close, how culture affects kids and how kids affect parents.
First, New York Magazine writer Jennifer Senior talks with TJC’s Steven I. Weiss about her book All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood, and why studies show that parents describe lives that are less happy but more meaningful than those who don’t have children.
Then, self-described “Tiger mother” Amy Chua and her husband, Jed Rubenfeld, both professors at Yale Law School, discuss their controversial book The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America. Do statistics back up their claims? Weiss gets down to the details.
