essay question

How should Asian families be depicted and how are they depicted?


  1. I think how Asian families SHOULD be depicted is like any other family. Flawed, full of mistakes, but trying to reconcile and make it work. Also, every family is different so this question is kind of tricky.

    However, how Asian families ARE portrayed is as ONE kind of family. Parents = short-sighted and only caring about grades or grandchildren. Kids = nerdy. That's pretty much it. There's no variety and, even though it may play off of some truths, it doesn't show the range of different dynamics that exist in Asian families as well as all other types of families.

  2. I am not sure about eveyeone else but my family, especially my parents, are like the typical asian parents that you see. they always only focus on grades and are strict. My life is hard T.T
