Asian American Teen Says Enough With the Tiger Parenting

posted by Randall

studyingPerfect SAT scores, 5’s on the advance placement test, concertmaster and president of the science club– all paths that can get you into Harvard.

It’s the path many Asian American tiger parents want to see their children take. But in a blog for Teen Ink, Susansh1996 wonders when enough is enough.

She argues this narrow focused push for academic success is driving kids not only to sleepless nights, but unhappiness.

“Parents, you are killing your kids. Please, for the sake of our health and happiness, tone down the tiger,” Susansh1996 writes.

Are you a tiger parent? What has your experience been with your child? Are you a tiger kid? What is your reaction to this? Read Susan’s blog in Teen Ink and share your thoughts.
