The Tiger Mom Meme offers up parenting tips
There is nothing quite like the anger of a mother questioned over her parenting skills. Last week, the Wall Street Journal set off a tidal wave of parenting angst with the article titled "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior." Written by Amy Chua, the article told a condensed version of her new book "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother." She made her children spend hours at the piano. She banned sleepovers. She insisted on top grades in all classes. In short, she celebrates the Eastern-style of parenting: saying "no" a lot.
Blogs pilloried her. TV talk show hosts could barely hold back their scorn. And now, a meme has started in celebration of her. In case you don't have a Tiger Mom of your own, just head over to Meme Generator and create a motivational mother for yourself: (Mind you, the model is a stock photograph model, not Ms. Chua herself.):
Buzzfeed's got a whole slew of them.
