This brings up another question to my pervious post on the Article and question.   The few Asian American Parents (I would also include parents that aren't Asian American either) that are strict, Do you think they are rough/strict on the child? does it make social life harder? is it better for them for the future (job wise)?  have you experienced this?


  1. I personally think that its the Asian culture that are strict and discipline. as we can see in the youtube how Asian parent teaches their kids. Its quite different with the western culture, where most of the western culture actually give more freedom to their kids. while Asian would not give so much freedom even after their kids have grew up.
    I think its their culture to be like this.

  2. I believe the 1st and 2nd generations of immigrants to the United States, no matter where they are from, have the strictness, the ambition, and the drive to succeed for them and their family. They decided to make a change or for other reasons are beginig their new lives in a new world. But, after those generations pass and you get further in time with the generations who descend from the original immigrants, these generations just become stupid americans just like the rest of us; for the majority.

  3. stupid american's?

    hmmmm interesting....
    Many asian children had talent, just like anyone else..... althought according to asian familys they must focus on SCHOOL, this is unfair to the natural development of life

    which is "the world is not fair"

    Some people are quick thinkers
    some are TALL
    some are short
    some are thick
    some are super skinny
    some are born with small lungs
    some huge
    some bigger stomachs (eat more - kobayashi)
    some aren't
    some are born like megan fox
    some are born like rosie o-donnell

    with these within the world, not everyone can be einstein

    You have to be YOU
    this kinda relates to my idea why there aren't many asian actors, cause asian familys focus on the fact that SCHOOL is 1st, nothing else......

    yet mexican/black/white/ actors pop out cause the western philosphy is to allow your child to grow the way they want, not be forced. To focus on there own indiviual talents, and not try to focus on going after dreams that can never be

    If I were pushed to be a michael phelps, it would never happen

    hes 6 foot something
    im 5'6

    hi arm spam his twice mine, his hand is twice mine

    So why train hard, when i'll never be in his ranking......

  4. strict and ruff is never good.....

    its a child, not a person who wants to be #1
    HUGE difference
    and child is curious, you must try to get him to like things cause he may want too

    Strict and ruff training is for those that are ready to do whatever it takes to be #1... (atheltes)

    I believe asian parents aren't strict, they nurture.

    I have a friend, has iq of 140 at age 13....
    he wasn't pushed to be strict, he was loved, inspired, cared for, helped.....

    to sum it up, i believe good familys follow this moto -

    If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
    If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
    If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
    If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
    If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
    If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
    If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
    If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
    If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
    If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
    If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
    If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
    If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
    If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
    If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
    If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
    If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
    If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
    If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

  5. Now i ask, asian americans within this class, if you feel you were pushed hard by your parents, see if you read the qoutes i posted, and if your parents didn't SEEMINGLY do this......

    I believe asian parents, follow alot of these quotes, yet they come off strict....when they are not....
