Explain asian children to me

I specifically mean asian-American little boys. Their moms don't discipline them one bit. I'm sitting next to these two little shits right now at my daughter's volleyball practice. They're 6 years old and they are writhing on the ground, throwing their toys, and being really loud. Mom just sits there not giving a fuck. Situation wouldn't be any different if they were any other race, except for one thing. At some point these asian kids become super conformist and polite. How does this magically happen when their mothers give them no discipline? And when?

Re: Explain asian children to me

Sounds like just about every kid these days.

I swear, every time I go somewhere, be it the grocery store, Walmart, Target, fast food places, or casual dining places, there are kids running wild and screaming their heads off while their parents do nothing.

The only places I go where kids are always well-behaved are Whole Foods and Barnes & Noble.

Re: Explain asian children to me

We really should implement some type of test for parenthood.

? Have you been around teenagers, Asian or otherwise?

The stereotype is that Asian parents are very strict, especially when it comes to schooling and grades, so in this case maybe the Asian American parent doesn't fall into that stereotype? I'm pretty sure there are even some Asian Americans who aren't good at math.

I am curious what you expect out of the parent. Wail on them right there? Take them outside and wail on them outside? Scream at them in the middle of volleyball practice? Never go outside (if she had to take her kid to practice, that may not have been an option)? Go on their smartphone and post on a forum dedicated to outdated media that the racist guy sitting next to her is eyeing her kids?

Re: Explain asian children to me

If I have to explain Asian children to you, we'll need to start here:



You should have gone off on them and then screamed "I'm having flashbacks to 'Nam!"

But like I said, most shitty kids continue to be shit kids and grow up to be shitty adults, asian kids hit some moment in their life where they become quiet and reserved and conformist. How does this occur when mom does nothing for years and years?

Do all Asian kids and Asian moms do the exact same thing? If not, maybe you should bump this thread in 10 years and tell us if these particular kids turned out quiet and reserved and conformist like every other Asian kid. If so, then we can further discuss.

After what that son of a whore affluenza kid did no one should be talking about the children of any other race.

I'm generalizing and there are exceptions, but mostly yes, they're pretty similar. It's a phenomenon I've seen over and over and over: Little kids wild and mom tolerates it all, and then grown folks (say college age) completely quiet and conformist. Like polar opposites.

Okay, maybe better, simpler question: Why do asian moms tolerate bad behavior from their kids and not discipline? Is it only sons?

Currently, it's when people use any kind of semi-specific description of any type of group of people and raise a question about them.

However, peoples who have roots tracing back to Europeans of white color are excluded from this definition, and are shit out of luck.

If the kids turn out fine, why are you questioning their parenting? According to your outcome observations they are doing it right.

But yeah, time for you to latch on to this family and follow them for the next 10 years and report back.

Re: Explain asian children to me

I live in a predominantly Asian area of So cal and my (Asian) daughter goes to a mostly Asian school. After being around the school for 5 years I've found Asian kids are almost all well behaved and good students. Not sure what planet the OP lives on. Then again it's not the first time I've seen him base a stereotype of an entire race on anecdotal incidents.

Re: Explain asian children to me

I think these children should be applauded. They're throwing off the shackles of their ancestral culture, and are fully assimilating. Sounds like they're well on their way to becoming obnoxious, poorly informed, lard-assed Americans with a sense of entitlement and superiority.

When we get to the point of the conversation where it goes, "All Asians are this..." that's when I check out.

Re: Explain asian children to me

I'm so jealous of kids these days. If I got loud and obnoxious in a store I got a boot in the ass, repeat as often as dad felt necessary.
