Tiger Mother

I just finished the book "Battle Hymn of a Tiger Mother" and wanted to recommend that parents read it.  Amy Chua spends much of the book discussing her relationship with her younger daughter and her violin lessons.  While her parenting style is definitely harsh by Western Standards, she does bring up an interesting philosophical question about happiness.  Should we be concerned about how "happy" a child is while practicing the violin or focus on future state of happiness that is attained through a successful outcome as the result of the practicing?
