b>888 775-3773 p>The guest, Dr. Lac Su, is rebutting the author of "Tiger Mom" who said that a tough mom was responsible for the success of Asian children in school
He wrote..."I love you's are for white people". HE says asians don't say "i love you". They show they love them through action...."his dad beat him up". His dad told him once when he told his dad he loved him, "I love yous are for white people".
He HAD to bring A's home. He was allowed to play with other kids (most Asian kids aren't)...but he had to work really hard to do that. He was called 'stupid', retarded, etc. all the time. They played a lot of mind games and reverse psychology.
Jesse asked how did it make him feel. Guest thought his father was right. He resented him. It was in his mind, but not his heart. He just wished he had a white dad.
“So are you saying you had a tiger mom and you approve?”
I had a tiger mother and I strongly DISAPPROVE. There’s a reason so many asian kids attempt suicide. Constant verbal abuse will do that to a kid.
