I made another interesting discovery regarding the performance of Asian Americans in school. The stereo type is that of the High Expectations Asian Father. Anything less than an A++ is unacceptable. But studies discussed in this article reveal that in fact Asian parents are much more nurturing and easy going than we may realize.

Asians are using more of the latter, and so their children are performing well.
