(Usually, but not always) Strict, nosey, and controlling. They make you go to summer school if you get a B+ in an honors math class, even if you had the best grade out of all the Asians who took that class, and replace your grade all because 'if you get 4.0, you get sit on stage when graduate!'. To Asian parents, summer is not a 'break' as it is to other children in America, but 'a time to catch up'. Summer for Asian kids include SAT/ACT/PSAT prep (whether its doing books or taking classes), summer school, piles of math books, etc. while others are hanging out with friends and making s'mores. Asian Parents control their kids' lives because they want them to get into a good college, so that 1) They can brag to their asian friends about what college you go to <---MAIN REASON 2) You can be a doctor and make lots of money and 3) They can brag about how much money you make as a doctor
Asian parents often put on a facade to others that they are nice, normal American parents. Then, when your friends leave (if they ever get the OK to come over), your parents start yelling at you, pressuring you to do math, and/or beating you for something you did that 'embarassed' them (i.e. having a messy room). They also severely disapprove of technology (computers, ipods, tvs). If you get an A- its CLEARLY your ipods fault, so its going to be taken away until you get above a 98. If you watch an hour of TV, they begin yelling at you to stop and give you a lecture about how TV is like crack.
Asian summer: 8am-1:30pm summer school, 1:30pm-3:00pm math, 3:00pm-6:00pm tennis, 6:00pm-10:30pm math, FML

Asian parents:"Ooo since good deal I signed you up for ACT class too!"
Me:"...WHAT?!!!!!!!!!!!! But according to these pretests Ill either get a 35 or a 36!!!"

Asian mom:"WHAT?! I told you no ipod! NO MORE IPOD till you get 98!!"

Me: -watching friends-

Asian Americans born to a traditional Asian family have it difficult. Although they are exposed to freedom of speech, freedom to choose and well freedom to everything, they cannot exercise their freedom to their full extent.
It is difficult for Asian American children to see their peers having the liberty to choose a college fit for their personality, or fit for their own career goals and at the same time having their parents supporting them.
Restrictions are not only placed on academics but also on their child's personal life. Asian parents wish to control every aspect of their child's life. The reasoning behind this maybe because they want their child to do better than everyone else. However, they do not realise that to do better than everyone else does not mean that they will be happy. To asian parents, happiness can only be achieved by satisfying conditions like a to-do list. *check examples below*. One can understand that they have more experience than a child has, but that does not mean they can push the children through a "short cut" in life and not allow the child to experience the same mistakes and the same problems their parents went through.
To-do list for happiness according to asian parents.
1) Go to a good college
2) Get married
3) Good self image
etc.

of course these to-do lists have sub-to-do lists.

1) Go to a good college
---------------------------
a) go to a good high school

b) get good grades

c) do an insane amount of extra curricular activities
etc.
2) Get married
-----------------
a) conditions for a perfect partner
-has to be asian
-has to have good job
-has to have parents who have respectable jobs

etc.

b) parents approve this person (or preferably, pick this person)

c) no dating basically - since you only date for a reason - which is to get married - therefore people who do not fit the asian parents' requirements are a waste of time.
etc.
3) Good image
--------------------
a) no back-chatting parents

b) over look personal problems instead of working them out.

c) don't do things that do not benefit this list. ie. going on the computer for non-work-related things or watch tv.

etc.

utterly obsessive in one's life and you'll always be the kid no matter how old you are. 40? Still a kid.
Farked asian parent: Your study no good enough!

You: But I have got all high grades and soon off to exchange through scholarship which is really hard to get!

F.A.P: WA? You go by yourself? NO you CANT go anywhere, until you get married.

You: I have a LIFE of MY OWN you KNOW?

F.A.P: NO! You CAN'T GO BY URSELF, your mother go with you, or I go with you, you choose.

You: Hell NO! I can take care of myself for christ sake! I'm AN ADULT!

F.A.P: NO, your a KID, you don't know how to do anything, you don't know how to cook, how to clean, how to wash, how to take care of yourself!!!

You: WTF?!??!!! DID U EVER LET ME LEARN IN THE FIRST PLACE? BLOODY HELL, NO ONE WAS BORN TO KNOW HOW TO DO EVERYTHING, I WILL LEARN MYSELF WITHOUT YOUR DARN HELP!!!

POINT BEING:
obsessive asian parents will first control your life by doing everything for you, and make you study and work day and night, so you dont have time to learn the everyday skills. And then when your old enough, got some success in ur studies and career, and want to live on your own, they throw you the line: YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF...WTF... just to keep you with them FOREVER...
SO FARKED I SWEAR!!!

Asian parents consume themselves with getting their child into an Ivy League, compare their child to other children, and/or act strictly toward their children. For example, asian parents typically sign their children up for summer school without their child's knowledge or consent, only to tell their children the day before that they must attend the summer school that they were signed up for. They are characterized but not limited to parents of asian descent.
Scott: "Sorry I could not see that movie yesterday. My parents made me stay home because they were scared I was going to party too much. Instead, they made me stay home and work on my Harvard application for eight hours."
Jeff: "Wow. Too bad you have asian parents. We had a great time yesterday."

You non asians think that all asians are awesome? Nope, you're wrong especially when it comes to OLD G(Generation) Asian Parents. Old G Asian Parents only let their kids marry people of their same nationality. Asian boys can't grow hair pass their ears. Getting a C isn't bad, but for OLD G Asian Parents, you're screwed. They don't let their daughters go out because they think their daughter is going to get rape or take naughty pictures. The food is rice all the time. They want their kids to be a doctor or a pharmacist.
Asian Dad: Hey boy you have the girlfriend yet?
Asian Boy: Yeah
Asian Dad: She the white, the black, or the spanish?

Asian Dad: You like getting the back door huh.
Asian Boy: What?

Asian Dad: A.....A......A.......C..........let me get my whip k boy. Can't find it but I got two steel chopsticks though.

Asian Girl: Hey mom I'm gonna go hang out with my girlfriends.
Asian Mom: HUH!?!? any boys?
Asian Girl: One guy and that's it.
Asian Mom: YOUR FRIENDS WILL RAPE YOU!
Asian Girl: How? They're all girls except for one guy.

Probably the #1 source of why Asian teens commit suicide.
Asian parents will always be hyopcrites, and you can't do anything about it. Reasoning with them will result in an one-hour lecture about how tough THEIR life was. If you get below an A or B you will recieve a beating, confiscation of your things, a beating, and an insane amount of work on that subject. They will also yell at you in public and embrass you in AN INFINITE amount of ways.
