As a child, first generation Chinese American, Iris Chen, author of Untigering: Peaceful Parenting for the Deconstructing Tiger Parent, was raised in a strict, high expectation house. As her own children began to rebel against her authoritarian parenting, Iris began to question what it truly means to be a “good” parent. In this episode, Hunter talks to Iris about her experience of “untigering” and her journey to change generational patterns.

  2. Children are like plants, having individual needs that must be met in order to thrive
