SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BabyCenter®, the #1 pregnancy and parenting mobile and web destination worldwide, is always offering moms intelligent and personal real-mom insights about the trends, issues, and joys of parenting through its award-winning Momformation blog.

The latest Momformation blog post from contributor Laurie Gelman has parents buzzing once again about the now-infamous "Tiger Mom," Amy Chua. Gelman reflects on the past year and takes a hard look at the "Tiger Mom" phenomenon and how it has influenced her own parenting style. While she may not agree with all of Chua's parenting philosophies, Gelman found herself unexpectedly relating to her over the holidays when her kids were writing sub-par thank-you cards and Gelman decided not to settle for less than their best efforts.

So, does "Tiger Mom" really have a point? And will she influence your parenting style?
