Beijing - The roar of America's 'Tiger Mum' was heard worldwide earlier this year. Now a 'Wolf Dad' from China is boasting about his tough child-rearing techniques.

Ms Chua ignited controversy in the US and elsewhere with the publication of her book in January describing her strict approach to raising her two daughters, to the point where she made one of them practise a piano piece right through dinner without any breaks. Mr Xiao writes about his use of a 'feather duster and cane' on his children - three of whom were admitted to the prestigious Chinese institution in 2009 and last year.
