...I just finished reading that article on Chinese mothers, and colour me horrified. I alternated between telling myself "My way is not the only way" with increasingly less conviction and going "This is a parody, right?" Oh my god.

I can assure you it's not parody, considering the hell Aileen's parents put me through... and her as well, when she doesn't toe the company line. As a matter of fact, their insistence that she break up with me is justified by just the sort of "I'm your parents, I know better" overriding that this woman describes in her article. I've seen it first hand, as well as the hell they put Aileen through when they don't approve of whatever it is she does. By the way, she turns 25 in two months.

I was also somewhat suspicious it was a parody before I saw the woman was writing a book on the subject. Not that it couldn't still be a parody, or an exaggeration.

I agree that some parents are too lenient with their kids, and that, for example, if a kid is fat, something should be done about it, but the extreme Azn parenting of that woman is nuts.
And why does her husband let her do it if he disagrees? He sounds like a pussy.
