Tiger Mom’s tactics worked! Controversial author’s daughter wins place at Harvard AND Yale
虎妈战术成功了 女儿被哈佛、耶鲁双双录取

Vindication? Amy Chua was a super-strict parent who banned television and never accepted a grade lower than an A

She has been criticised for her controversial super-strict parenting style - that includes banning sleepovers and television and never accepting a grade lower than an A. But years of discipline have paid off for 'Tiger Mom' Amy Chua whose daughter Sophia was this week accepted into Harvard and Yale.
不许孩子睡在朋友家,不许看电视,甚至还不许拿到A以下的分数,她与众不同的超严格教育方式饱受争议。但“虎妈”蔡美儿多年的严格教育显然受到了成效,她的女儿Sophia本周同时拿到了哈佛跟耶鲁的录取通知。

Eighteen-year-old Sophia, the daughter of Yale law professors Chua and Jed Rubenfeld, has not decided what offer to accept. But it may be seen as vindication for Chua who described her strict parenting style in a book entitled Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother earlier this year. 
母亲是耶鲁法学教授的18岁Sophia目前还没有决定到底去哪个大学。但这显然给了她的母亲,今年早些时候出版了以严格教育为主题的《虎妈的战歌》的蔡女士的大平反。

She received death threats and was described as the 'worst mother ever' after the publication of the book.
在该书出版之后,她被称为“史上最糟母亲”,甚至还受到了死亡威胁。

In it, she described her efforts to give her two daughters a traditional strict 'Chinese' upbringing. She describes how 'Western' parents put the self-esteem of their children before academic success. But her attempts to implement a strict parenting style that values academic success above all else resulted in some uncomfortable tales. One particularly controversial moment sees Chua describe how she threatened to give her other daughter Lulu's favourite doll house to charity unless she learned a very difficult piano piece.
书中,她称自己对两个女儿的严厉教育法是传统“中国式”的。她认为“西式”父母总是过于看重孩子的自尊而不是学术上的成功。不过她切实贯彻的分数高于一切的严厉教育法催生了不少让人有些不适的情况。她描述的,有一次自己是如何威胁女儿露露不学会一首很难的钢琴曲就要把她最心爱的娃娃屋捐给慈善机构的情况就是这些饱受争议的时刻之一。

Strict rules: Amy Chua watches her daughter Sophia, now 18, practice the piano

When Lulu - who is now 15 - failed to perfect it, Chu then threatened her with no birthday parties for four years and told her to stop being 'cowardly, lazy and pathetic'. She then describes how they sat together at the piano for hours without a break until Lulu perfected the piece and the child was 'beaming'.
而当那时只有15岁露露无法弹奏得十全十美时,蔡美儿的反应则是威胁说四年都不会给她办生日宴会,并要她别再那么“懦弱、懒惰又悲哀”。然后他们一起坐在钢琴前一弹就是几个小时,直到露露的表现达到完美,那时候孩子也很“狂喜”。

Her daughters were also not allowed to have play dates, learn any instrument other than the piano or violin, appear in a school play, choose their own extra-curricular activities or fail to be the top student in any class except gym or drama.
她的两个女儿也不被允许跟伙伴一起玩,除了钢琴和小提琴不能学习别的乐器,也不能参加学校的演出,不能自己挑选课后活动,而且除了体育和戏剧,每一科目都必须是前几名。

Ivy League: Sophia Chu-Rubenfeld was accepted into Harvard university, above

Both Chua and her husband are graduates of Harvard Law school, and their daughter Sophie has also been subjected to intense media scrutiny after her mother puclished her book. She wrote to the New York Post earlier this year defending her mother, saying the approach had forced her to become more independent.  She wrote: 'To me, it’s [life] not about achievement or self-gratification. It’s about knowing that you’ve pushed yourself, body and mind, to the limits of your own potential.  You feel it when you encounter a life-changing idea, and when you do something on your own that you never thought you could. If I died tomorrow, I would die feeling I’ve lived my whole life at 110 percent.
'And for that, Tiger Mom, thank you.'
蔡美儿和她的丈夫都毕业于哈佛法学院。在母亲的书出版之后,他们的女儿索菲亚也同样成了媒体的焦点。之前她曾致信纽约邮报捍卫自己的母亲,说其教育法迫使她变得更为独立。她写道:“对我来说,升高或不仅是功成名就或者自我满足,而是最大程度地挑战自己,无论是体能还是智力方面,直到发挥出自己的最大潜能。当你有了一个能改变自己一生的信念,或者是独立完成了一件你从没想过自己能做到的事情时,这种感觉尤其强烈。即便我明天死去,我也敢说我已经将我的人生活出了百分之一百一十的精彩。”
