Tiger Babies Strike Back: How I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom But Could Not be Turned to the Dark Side
Traversing the choppy seas of American and Chinese traditions, the author dives into the difficulties facing women today - Chinese-American and otherwise. At once deeply relevant and playfully honest, she attempts to dispel Chua's myth that all Chinese women are Tiger Mothers and that all parents should rule with an iron fist.

Product details

What a Tiger Mother thinks is ferocity is just control-freakiness turned rancid like frozen breast milk left in the mini Tupperware too long. Tiger Mom, I'm just not that into you - "From Tiger Babies Strike Back". After Amy Chua's controversial parenting book became fodder for every morning talk show, Kim Wong Keltner wasn't surprised to be asked, Are you a Tiger Mother? Raised by a Tiger Mom herself, Kim wasn't fazed. Instead, she's striking back. Hard. Traversing the choppy seas of American and Chinese traditions, Keltner dives into the difficulties facing women today - Chinese-American and otherwise. At once deeply relevant and playfully honest, Keltner attempts to dispel Chua's myth that all Chinese women are Tiger Mothers and that all parents should rule with an iron fist. Topics include: White Thing, I Think I Love You: East Meets West in the Board Room and the Bedroom; I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom and All I Got Was this Lousy T-Shirt: A Rebuttal to Chua, with More Anecdotes from the Wong Family Tree; My Car and Kid Are Both Hybrids; Imperial Ferocity vs. Feminine Vulnerability: Dragon Lady or Chinese Mary Magdalene? The first and only book of its kind to take Tiger Mothers on by their teeth, "Tiger Babies Strike Back" combines personal anecdotes and tough love advice for a humorous, provocative look at how our families shape-and sometimes shake-our personal foundations.

Press
"The author writes with compassion, humor, love and anger about her mother's combination of tough love and high expectations...A quirky reflection on the modern immigrant experience and hyphenated ethnicity in America." -- Kirkus Reviews "An inspiring take on mothering -- and daughtering. The book is smart, creative, and thought-provoking." -- Linda Small, author of Wimpy Parents: How Not to Raise a Brat "A sort of Asian American Sex in the City...like meeting someone who voices thoughts or experiences that you presumed were wholly yours...cynically humorous and genuinely touching...Keltner's wry sens of humor leaps off every page." -- generationrice "Full of feisty humor... Smart and sassy." -- USA Today It's awesome to find such deep truth that makes you laugh this hard. -- Beth Lisick, author of Everybody Into the Pool
