Tiger mother
    2016-10-26  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    She is an immigrant tiger who roars rather than purrs.

    The roar is from the distant China, like monsoon water.

    There is an intelligent, weird war between her and her girls, old country and new.

    Instead of sugar-coating, she loves eating bitterness.

    She roars with her prehensile lip on her waxen yellow face, pacing up and down along the bamboo colonnade, “Don’t creep if you can run. Don’t run if you can fly. Fly to the tower of ivory in air. Sniff the ranking and seek an A.”

    A-minus, for her girls, is not merely unacceptable but unthinkable.

    Laziness is definitely something they cannot afford either psychologically or emotionally.

    Bells of disappointment ring in her voice

    like empty socks at Christmas.

    Gleams of never-ending guilt track them down like detectives.

    But when she sees her girls stepping into the jungle of Harvard, she calms down and lies out in the sun with a badge of honor.
