Top definition
A mother in Asian culture. She often will have a timetable made for her children for when they can study which is often most of their time. They're ruthless and want their children to be the smartest as the high population in China and other Asian countries cause a very large amount of competition for university entry and other such things alike. They may be ruthless but they're mostly doing it for your own sake.
