I find it interesting that so many Asian American parents (both born here and overseas) do not consider themeselves tiger parents, but I think their children beg to differ.
I am doing research on this subject and really want to hear your thoughts, Asian youth about your tiger mom and/or dad. You can set up an anonymous email using gmail.com or yahoo.com or hotmail.com and enter your honest thoughts. No profanity please.
Please share how your parents treated you growing up — the good, the bad, and the ugly — too much academic pressure, plastic covers on chairs and lampshades, name calling, comparison to other smart or accomplished siblings or friends’ children, etc.
Thanks for sharing!
