BTW - and if you think American parents have less expectation of their kids and put less pressure on their kids, hmmm, no. They are just more PC about it. They say they do not care as long as their kids are happy, there is world peace, and all colleges are the same, it doesn't matter what college you go to it is what you of it, and they are just blowing happy sunshine up you know what. But they still feel the same as Asian parents and their kids still feel the same pressure.
This is not an Asian issue--it is an "immigrant striver" issue. The same thing was observable in Jewish immigrant families in the past, and it's observable in immigrants from non-Asian countries (such as many Africans) as well.
