^- Mine would've yelled at me + kept that event for future arguments about 'how i'm never looking into details' and march back to the classroom where she would demand the teacher give me back the exam so I could retake it.

Default Things only mum can teach

1. My Mother taught me about ANTICIPATION..."Just wait until your father gets home."

2. My Mother taught me about RECEIVING.... "You are
going to get it when we get home!"

3. My Mother taught me to MEET A CHALLENGE... "What were you thinking? Answer me when I talk to you ...
Don't talk back to me!"

4. My Mother taught me LOGIC... "If you fall out of
that swing and break your neck, you're not going to
the store with me."

5. My Mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE... "If you
don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to
freeze that way."

6. My Mother taught me to THINK AHEAD... "If you don't pass your spelling test, you'll never get a good job."


7. My Mother taught me ESP... "Put your sweater on;
don't you think I know when you're cold?"

8. My Mother taught me HUMOR... "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."

9. My Mother taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT... "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up."

10. My Mother taught me about SEX.... "How do you
think you got here?"

11. My Mother taught me about GENETICS... "You're just like your father."

12. My Mother taught me about my ROOTS... "Do you

13. My Mother taught me about WISDOM OF AGE... "When you get to be my age, you will understand."

14. And my all time favorite... JUSTICE... "One day
you'll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like
you....Then you'll see what it's like."

Lmao so true! XD

OMG, me and my parents used to have the biggest arguments when I brought home a B and not an A (my parents didn't care for '+' and '-' unless it was a B-. I finally broke them down when I purposely decided to get bad grades (C's and D's). It took several months for them to get used to the fact that I'm not perfect and I can't accomplish their straight A's all the time "dream".

Now my parents are like, "anything that is considered passing is acceptable....an F is not acceptable! But you can have D's, as long as you pass!". When I started college I had a 4.0 average....but my grades plummeted because of depression, teacher BS, and other BS that follows me around in life. Thank goodness for college policy of not discussing anything with parents, otherwise I'd have my car & laptop taken away T~T;;

Anyways -- the reason why I quit trying my hardest was because even when I won international awards, president's educational awards, even when I took college while in high school and STILL held a part-time job....it was never enough for my parents. The day I got those prestigious awards, my mother's attention was turned to the #1 ranked high school student and went, "oh look at __________, he won $92,000 free scholarship to any college...if only you'd stop being lazy and tried harder!". Now that was a major, "Ouch!".

I was #15 in the entire school btw. There were too many people vying for valedictorian @__@;; It was a tough race!

I had to. It's a good poster to show to parents. Course, if they complain that you could be that ONE winner, you could be bold and ask them what they won in their life. Do it at your own risk? =D.

I'm not Asian, but my friend is Asian and she had to go through with her strict parents.

One time I went to his house and she parents called me a "dumb white girl". Reason why he's got better grades than me cause his parents spanked her cause he got a B one time on her English test and forced her to make A's on everything.

I even know the gradings from Asian parents compare to normal grading, same applies with her as well.

A=Average
B=Bad
C=Catastrophe
D=Disowned
F=Forever Forgotten

Also, I know this one kid got adopted by Asian parents and same thing apply to him, he have to make A's on everything or he's a disgrace to his parents.


To tell you the truth, it's not only some Asian people that are strict, it's plenty of parents (no matter what race) can be super strict and/or overprotective as well. My mom was never strict, but she's always an overprotective parent. -_-

Parents have different ways of showing love. If you are Asian and you really don't understand your parents and, deep down inside (cue music) you really don't want to be like them (Minimum level, er, I mean age, 13) when you grow up, then you'll have to think harder.
