"This is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs.

This was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising their kids than Western ones.

But instead, it's about a bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how I was humbled by a thirteen-year-old."

ooooh, love me some Asian/American 2nd generation immigrant family stories.  Plus, she is a smart mother/writer and is outlining the difference between Western & Asian mothering/parenting.  Yep.  I am hooked.
