One of the motivations of tiger moms is that kids should not waste their talents. I agree with this. Underachievement is a tragedy. Without individual human achievement, there would be no great art, literature, science, technology, discovery. No civilization. I don’t see this as debatable. The discipline to achieve may not always depend on parents, but it has to come from somewhere and innate self-discipline does not appear to be a universal trait.
