Parental Influence on Success

Have Your Parents Influenced Your Career?

By now, you've probably seen Amy Chua's Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior on the WSJ, as well as retaliating pieces, all over the web. Her harsh methods, which include not allowing her kids to go on sleepovers and to get any grade less than an A, were meant to push her children towards excellence.

Her daughters may thank or blame her later on in life depending on where they end up, but I'm wondering how much of an effect does parenting have on your adult self. Have your parents influenced your career wins and fails?
