"It was lovely seeing you and your family, Jenny. Let's catch up again soon. And remember, 'All work and no play makes Jack ... an International Human Rights Lawyer!"

Jenny is a busy mum, who gets a visit from her friend, the Tiger Mum, which makes Jenny feel she's not doing enough for her own children. If they haven't mastered at least two instruments, three languages or read all of the classics before university, how will they ever succeed in life?!

With some help from her family, Jenny realises how easy it is to get caught up in the anxiety of parenting and the important thing is that her children are growing up in a warm, loving environment.

A humorous look at overanxious parenting that helps put everyday stresses about children's achievements into perspective.


'A very funny and insightful book, which should be read by both parents and children.'
- Brian Luff, THINK FUNNY

'While I found this book hilarious, maybe laughter reflects the preferred coping mechanism to tears for children of Tiger Mums who know that we have to work much harder to succeed in this world!'
- Krystal Kavita Jagoo, MSW, RSW
