Iris Chen is the author and founder of the Untigering movement. Her mission is to promote peaceful parenting, intersectional unschooling, and anti-oppression, especially among Asian communities.
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.
