I have seen it
I dunno if its called good parenting though
he wanted 2 boys
but got 2 girls
his whole goal was to raise two boys who were good at tennis, instead he rasied two girls who were
he didnt give them a choice, it was more "tennis or death"
of course they are good at tennis, but they were brought up playing it in the same way communists train their circus performers
but I guess if you agree with communism then it aint no thang
plus he did put all his money into their training, he got it back 100 fold though
more of a smart business man than good father
the movie is very good
it shows what good parenting and love can do in extreme situations
people hate it when we do good
but they don't see themselves
