Chinese Parents vs Western Parents

Chinese parents can order their kids to get straight As. Western parents can only ask their kids to try their best.

Chinese parents can say, “You’re lazy. All your classmates are getting ahead of you.” By contrast, Western parents have to struggle with their own conflicted feelings about achievement, and try to persuade themselves that they’re not disappointed about how their kids turned out.
