Life’s not fair: Tiger Mom has kids;Marilyn Monroe never did.

I found this one on Good Reads. It’s attributed to Marilyn Monroe. She was a smart woman.

“All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren’t.”

I doubt that Monroe would’ve wanted parents to brainwash plain Jane kids into thinking they were destined to be America’s next cover girl. She wouldn’t have wished for hearts to be broken. But, a reasonable amount of positive reinforcemnet is important.

I do wish, however, that the childless Marilyn Monroe were here to give some pointers in mothering to Amy Chua.
