Indeed...I know it's a stereotype (and an exaggeration although sadly there are really people like that) but it just cracks me up every time! lol...at least my mother who was from Singapore was not like that.

Main reason why China, South Korea and Japan are in the top 10 countries with the highest suicide rate in the world...
Conservative upper (middle) class Asian parents who raise their kids as robots.

It's not so much about parents. The ambiance in school is like that.

My parents did not care about my studying too much. They never checked my homework or asked me what I learned in details; but the teachers and peer pressure were sufficient.
