Dragon Mother To American Dream Mom

This is why we love the interconnected world. Dragon mother Amy Chua, the Yale University law professor whose book on alpha-mom parenting, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, has whipped up such a storm of controversy and publicity in the U.S., is being published in the Chinese market under the title Being An American Mum. Gone is the simple text cover of the U.S. edition to be replaced by a picture of Chua in black jacket with a star-spangled map of America as a back drop. “The changes are aimed at…appealing to Chinese sensibilities,” Xinhua quotes Wang Feifei, the acquisition editor at CITIC Publishing House, as saying. “Many Chinese parents want their kids to excel and join the social elite,” he adds. Everyone else’s grass is greener, it seems.
