I never study and I never do homework.
As long as I have high grades (Which I do), my parents are happy with that. .___________.
At least your parents care.

That's what I used to think, but it will probably be exactly the opposite when I really have kids.

I'm Asian. In fact, from SEA. I'm put in a rather competitive environment and my mom never have any issues IF I was working hard or not. I can perform exceptionally in one semester and deliberately flunk the next to kill all the advantages I have , and she wont give a damn. She's more concern on where to dine with my dad the next weekend.

Lol....well pretty much all asian parents follow gradings by these standards:

A+ : Above Average
A: Average
B: Bad (forced to study more)
C: Crap (Tuition + 98237489 hrs more of studying)
D: Doomed (*whip* I'm sure people know where that's going...[rotan anyone? lol])
E: Executed (Death by which you should probably run and hide)
F: F**ked (executed,tortured.....0% chance of survival)

Never known what it's like to have a grade lower than an A. But I know that Es and Fs don't get you killed here.

Sounds a lot like my boss .-.

It's kinda different because she's not my mom, but she's constantly yelling at me for things like not cheating people out of their money or giving them as much food as they paid for or something insane like that.

They mean well I guess, my parents were like that with me all through high school.

I guess drivers here in SG are not that bad after all, not being able to walk to the park is just...wow.

o.o I'm sure she means well- but if you feel you are in the right you should make a stand. Tell her that you do study enough and that driving through a red light would be irresponsible of you.

Course, this is coming from someone who was kicked out of their house as a teenager, sooo

This. If you want to criticize my driving then get out and get your own ride =] Also never touch the radio unless you make payments on the car.

*ahem* back on topic.. I dunno what to tell you man, I never have and probably never will understand Asian parents. I'm sure they mean well but some of their methods... yeah I just don't get it.

parents criticize because they care about your well being, even if they do go a little overboard sometimes.

Another reason could be that they're living their dreams through you. They want you to be the person they wanted to become but did not achieve.

If they're gonna do what I think they are with the coat hanger, then it should be on the bottom of the list ._.

Maybe you guys should get more specific in the A category in this situation...

lol, it reminds me of my mom constantly saying, "You have to be really good at math, all Koreans are good at math. If you're not good at math, you're not Korean."

What a way to be stereotypical to your own kind. >_>

...Actually, I do remember reading about this 12yo girl who tried to change the F on her result slip into an A. Needless to say her parents found out.....and she committed suicide.

Sounds like that was probably in England then seeing as the entire time I've lived in the UK the people in England seem to go incredibly emo and kill themselves for getting As and Bs instead of A*s. UK does A* instead of A+, don't ask me why I don't know.

Or she knew the next few years of her life were over. Maybe she knew her parents were literally gonna give her a punishment that would make the next years of her life a living hell. Can you imagine something like, no T.V, no games, no party occasions, no friend invites? I'd hang myself on the spot.

One time I forgot an exam paper had two sides and cried my eyes out all the way home. My mom made me hot cocoa and told me I'll remember next time and that she loved me =)
