Spot the Difference: "Chinese Parenting Style" Edition

Which of these pieces of "parenting advice" is from a real author?

  1. Take your children to Chuck E. Cheese's and let them play any game they choose, then make them watch as you burn their tickets.

  2. When [your child] turns in a poor practice session on the piano..., [scream]: "If the next time's not perfect, I'm going to take all your stuffed animals and burn them."

Life imitating The Onion? Or, The Onion making fun of a "Tiger Mother"?
