A warm welcome to Daily Show viewers!  Some other posts you might be interested in are listed below.

For those of you who didn’t catch it, last night the Daily Show with Jon Stewart aired a response to the whole Tiger Mother hoopla.  Coincidentally, this month I’ve been blogging about ways to “manufacture” happiness when it seems to have evaporated from your life. I hope you get a good laugh out of it!

They didn’t air my favorite part of the interview, sadly. In it, Tiger-mom-raised Olivia Munn kept giving herself gold stars (literally, the actual stickers) during the interview. A terrific comedic spoof of the pitfalls of the fixed-mindset.
It isn’t every day that you get to laugh at yourself on national television. I’d love to hear what you think of the segment!
