Mean Variance writes: "The Wall Street Journal has a story about growing up from and being a "Chinese Mother." Also, there are many comments from The Atlantic. It describes the rigid upbringing of the writer and how she chooses to raise her kids the same way. She efforts to point out that her term "Chinese Mother" is not meant to broadly define all Chinese, likewise, she posits some non-Chinese raise their kids this way. Being a software engineer, I work with many Chinese (including Hong Kong and Taiwan born) colleagues (along with Russian, Indian, and American). I see the trait in some colleagues and former neighbors in the Chinese dense town of Cupertino, CA, but don't think it warrants such a broad sterotype."
