Tiger mum's Daughter Just Got Into Harvard

Amy Chua, the Yale law professor who enraged parents and morning show viewers everywhere when she published her parenting book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, must be feeling somewhat vindicated today.

Chua’s eldest daughter was just accepted to Harvard. 

Chua, better known as Tiger mum, made headlines earlier this year for preaching the benefits of ultra strict parenting practices — rooted in her own Chinese upbringing.

The WSJ article that accompanied the release of her book was called “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior” and preached a childhood free of video games, playdates, and TV and listed all the ways in which Western parents are failures.

Some readers went so far as to call her abusive. 

Perhaps now she will respond by mailing out copies of her daughter’s Harvard acceptance letter.
