For children of Chinese elite, balancing the books is all about etiquette and manners

Danielle Liu stared straight ahead, a book balanced precariously on her head, and carefully walked along a red line on the floor.

The 10-year-old’s mother hoped the exercise would help to make Danielle “a little lady” and allow her to shine among the children of China’s ultra-competitive rich.

Danielle was with seven other young children who spent their Saturday on the top floor of a five-star hotel in central Shanghai for a class in etiquette, manners and deportment.
