Daughter of the 'Tiger Mom' Gets Into Harvard and Yale
Filed under: In The News
Seems all that time spent not hanging out with pals, going to sleepovers and watching TV has landed Sophia Chua-Robenfeld spots at Harvard and Yale, NPR reports.
Chua, you may recall, is the Yale professor and author of "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother," chronicling her Confucian child-rearing techniques.
But Chua-Robenfeld hasn't made her decision just yet, according to the Yale Daily News.
"Having you as a mother was no tea party," Chua-Robenfeld previously wrote in a letter to the New York Post defending her mother. "There were some play dates I wish I'd gone to and some piano camps I wish I'd skipped. But now that I'm 18 and about to leave the tiger den, I'm glad you and Daddy raised me the way you did."
The Chicago Tribune blog "Raising Coconuts" calls the news "vindication."
