    1. I grew up with an authoritative parent life style.
    2. One example is when my mother would ask for me and my brothers opinions and try to talk to it out between us three boys.
    3. Permissive parents have difficulty with their children long term because the parents put them selves before their children. They also do not participate in their children’s daily activities.
    4. I would say strict parenting is the most effective because it has the proper parent hood qualities but they still have guidelines.
    5. My mothers up bringing was authoritative but it was also authoritarian. And because of the authoritarian style my mother listened much more to her children’s opinions and their wants. She wanted to give me and my brothers choices unlike her and her sisters had.
    6. My mother was similar to her mother because they both worried but not even close to the extreme as her mother did. My mother is extremely different from her mother. She is much more laid back, adventurous, lenient, easy to talk too. My mother is much more open to discussion on any topic with me and my brothers even my cousins. My mom is much more in style and down to earth.

  2. HEEEEYYY Mrs J this is Jeanette M.

    1. I have authoritative parents.
    2. One example is when my parents base everything off of my grades in order for me to get rewarded. They would say ” If you get a 90 or above average you will get that new iPhone that u wanted” . Another example is that if i don’t do well in school they may take away privileges.
    3. Permissive parents frequently have difficulty with their parents long term because it says on the chart that permissive parents are lenient , inconsistent and it also says they impose fewer rules and they tend to become less concerned about neatness and cleanliness. The permissive children are going to end up becoming very sloppy , inconsistent adults who don’t follow any rules. They are most likely to become unsuccessful in life.
    4. I believe the authoritative style is most effective because not only are you implying strict rules to show that there needs to be structure , but once the child follows the strict rules then they get rewarded. This shows that hard work gets rewarded.This method inspires children to work hard because they want the reward in the end.
    5. Mom is very authoritative because her parents were very affectionate but disciplined as well. Mom raises me the same exact easy because she like that way and that way was the only way she was taught in order the be successful.
    6. They are similar to their parents because they both use the same teaching methods as them , they both believe in being affectionate but applying the group rules so you know what to do and what not to do. They are different because back then i feel they were a little more strict because if you didn’t listen to your mother or father the first time they spoke , you would get whooped. Basically whatever they say GOES, which means you had no say in anything! Nowadays my parents can be a little lenient to me because they want to accommodate me and my needs , because they want to be fair sometimes.

    Hey Ms. Johnson it’s Pierce
    1. I think my parents are authoritative. At times they can be nice and positive but at the same time they have a set of rules that they expect my sister and I to obey. I feel that i am independent and my sister is getting there. For a 8 year old she is independent.
    2. I always wanted to go everywhere by myself when i was younger. I felt that by going by myself, I would seem older and more mature. I also felt that it would be the cool thing to do. My sister always wants to pick out her own clothes, even when she is running late. She won’t let my mother pick them out. She is also tries to hide her homeowrk from her when my mother tries to check it.
    3.Permissive parents have trouble with their children over a long period of time because they tend to be inconsistent when it comes to being there for the child. They may also spoil their child which will only hurt the child in the long run. In life you can not always get what you want. Your child will not know this if you spoil him or her.
    4.I believe that authoritative parenting is the most efficient. The child has support from the parents but guidlines at the same time. It is important to have support from your parents. If they are there to encourage you, you will have less difficulties. They have strictness in their life to teach them right from wrong and to hopefully be a good person who will make the right decisions in life. This will help them to become more independent which is a good thing because you can’t rely on others for your whole life.
    5.My mom has a lot of rules growing up. She was always in bed by a certain time,always clean,always had to have her hair a certain way. That is just a few. I think this is why my mother tends to be the more strict parent. When someone is in trouble, its usually with my mom. My dad didn’t many rules growing up. They were just basic like don’t get in trouble, keep the house clean, respect each other and all that. I think that is why he is more laid back when it comes to looking after my sister and I. He just wants us to keep the house clean and help him whenever we could.
    6.I don’t feel that my mother is like my grandmother. My grandmother had a lot of rules reguarding my mother that we don’t have. When she told me sone of the rules, i was kind of in shock. My Dad is like his parents because he is laid back. However, he can get mad of very little things and very quickly. That is how he is different.

    • mjsevensins says:

      I have only met your mom a few times but I know in those few brief encounters that her standards are high and that you have the ability to meet those expectations. She wants only the best for you. Your Dad sounds like mine, more relaxed and there is a nice balance of parenting styles between your parents. You are very lucky

      Please note I posted second assignment! Happy New Year!

  4. Edwin Revis Caban says:

    Hi Ms. Johnson i hope your enjoying your vacation. Here are my answers:
    1) My parents are authoritative.
    2) Ever since I can remember my parents always made school a priority and everything below an 85 really wasnt good enough. So when i was little I really pushed myself to get amazing grades so I could be able to play baseball with my dad when he got back from work. They used to always sit down with me and help me with my homework and review for tests. Most importantly, i was disciplined by getting my xbox taken away for a long time until my grades picked up.
    3) According to the chart, parents that are permissive tend to have problems with their children long term because they can tend to be neglecting and negligent which basically means that they forget about their children and let them do whatever they want. On the warm side it also says inconsistent which is one of the worst things a parent could be for a child which could confuse your children because they wont understand where you are coming from.
    4) I believe authoritative would be the best type of parenting because its the best of both worlds. You are kiind to your kids and give them some privleges but when you have to be you are strict and lay down the law. As a parent, your child should never be allowed to walk all over you and have no respect for their elders, they should have great morales and no right from wrong.
    5) I interviewed my father about his childhood and the three things he said he learned from his parents that influenced him to be the parent he is today was that as a child it was mandatory that they go to church every sunday and were involved with their church. the second thing was that his father wasnt the greatest parent but he reinforced great work ethics with them. He worked 6 days a week and as a child he realized that it was important to work hard everyday to reach a goal and enforced that with me through sports and through school eventually when i get a job. The last thing was family values that no matter what when things get rough you must always be close with your family and care for them when they need you.
    6) These values were pretty similar to my grandparents values but the only thing different was that my dad instilled athletics as a huge portion of our lives. We used sports to get away from our stress and school work, and possibly help me get into a good college.

    1) The parents from the West are laxed with school and dont stress on the importance of high grades as much as the chinese mothers. Another difference is that chinese mothers dont allow the kids to have a freedom in choice of activities. Also chinese mothers dont stress sports only playing instruments. Also they have no freedom to hang out only school and instruments lastly is no tv.
    2) Chinese parents stress repition and continue practice because they feel that eventually all the hardwork and practice will pay off.
    3) The daughter felt this way maybe because she isnt used to hearing compliments like that and usually they are put down by their parents which makes them feel good becuase they know they are highly thought of by their parents.
    4) Western mothers feel that you must cradle the kid and not put them down because it could ruin their self esteem and havae issues. But tiger mothers feel like the truth is key and that feelings dont matter, stressing what needs to get done to be successful has to be done if not your a dissapointment.
    5) In my opinion i agree with some methods of the tiger mothers because i feel like the way they stress school is very important but i disagree 100% with how cruel they could treat their kids and not have their kids play sports. In my opinion playing sports are the most important thing in life and being good at a sport can help with stress.

    • M johnson says:

      I believe you are very lucky to have such great role models!
      Please proof read your work when you post because the grammar does reflect on your grade as well
      I agree with you that Tiger Moms are much stricter and more demanding – Do you believe they create better students?

  5. kirstenmendieta says:

    Hello Ms. Johnson, I hope you had a wonderful holiday and a nice vacation off.
    1. I have authoritative parents.
    2. My parents are categorized under “authoritative” because they are very supportive and they have limitations but they aren’t super strict. I find myself to be independent and shown a great deal of affection by my parents.
    3. Based on the pie chart on page 237, permissive parents frequently have difficulty with their children long term because they detach themselves from their children. They neglect them and could careless about what their children do. When a child realizes their parents are neglecting them, they probably feel that if the parent doesn’t care, why should they.
    4. Authoritative parents are the most effective because they ‘combine warmth with positive kinds of strictness.’ With a strict and warm parent you will have support and tolerance but also regulations. Every child needs a sense of regulation of knowing right from wrong and limitations.
    5. A single mother raised my mother. Her mom was strict when it came to freedom but not strict when it came to her education. My mom said this made her want to be a better mother and make education a very important aspect in her children’s life.
    My father was raised by his grandma since his parents weren’t around and she was strict when it came to rules around the house, but she wasn’t very stern when it came to him going out or his education. He as well wanted to make education important for my brother and me.
    6. I feel as if my parents are not similar to their parents at all. My parents are very supportive and to me the most wonderful parents ever. My parents are always there for me, unlike their parents. My parents make education very important and they also let me have my freedom, with limitations. Even though I have freedom to go out I also have a curfew, which I admire because they are only want the best for me.

    1. -Chinese mothers will say things “unimaginable”, such as calling their child “garbage”, where as Westerners, have to “tiptoe” around their children and what they say.
    -Chinese parents can order their children to get straight A’s, where as Westerner parents can only “ask their kids to ‘try’ their best.”
    – Western parents are very anxious regarding their children’s self-esteem, and worry about fragility. However Chinese parents aren’t, the assume strength.
    – Chinese parents believe that their kids owe them everything, but Western parents don’t seem to feel that their children are “permanently indebted” to them.
    – Chinese parents know what is ¨best¨ for their children, and on the other hand Western parents try to respect their children’s “individuality”, inspiring them to chase their dreams and own passions.
    2. Tiger Moms emphasize so much more drill and practice in learning new skills because a Chinese parent believes that their child will be strong enough to take the same and improve themselves. Tiger Moms believe that they know what is best for their children, and that they know what their children are capable of doing.
    3. The daughter felt this way maybe because she felt as if the appraisal and the compliment had been sarcasm. I couldn’t quite understand why she would feel like garbage because if my parent had praised me in that manor I would have appreciated it.
    4. Tiger Moms are very straightforward and are not afraid to hurt their children’s feelings, so that they can improve themselves. Where as Western parents are not as straightforward with their children and are to worried about being the reason why their children are insecure or doing poorly in school or socially.
    5. I do believe that it is important to push your children to do well and be the best that they can be. I also do believe that every parent wants the best for their children and know that their children can reach the highest achievements. But I disagree that Tiger Moms should make their children miss out on opportunities of plays, sleepovers, etc. I agree with Western parents respecting their children’s individuality, and inspiring them to PURSUE their OWN passions, and supporting their choices and decisions, and most importantly being positive and nurturing.

  6. Kai Smith says:

    Hello, Ms. Johnson this is Kai, hope your having a wonderful vacation and holiday.
    1) I think my parents are authoritative.
    2) My parents would have a serious conversation with me if my grades were low and they would most likely not let me get on xbox or hangout with my friends unless my grades got higher. If I needed help on a subject they would try and find a tutor for me. My parents just want me to do well in school so that I get into a good college and be successful in life without relying on other people. That is why they are very strict on me.
    3) Permissive parents have difficulty with their parents long term because they are careless about their child and try to detach themselves of having a loving relationship with their child. From this the child wouldn’t care what he/ she does because there parents neglected them.
    4) Authoritative parenting is most affective because it combines warmth with positive kinds of strictness. The children of authoritative parents are often more independent and achievement oriented than other children. This parenting will help out in the future because now they won’t be lazy, they will be more hardworking and reach for their goals in life.
    5) My parents experiences as child were not easy growing up they really didn’t have things that other kids their age had. They had to get jobs at an early age in order to support their family. They had to work hard for whatever they wanted.This is how they became more responsible adults. This is how they try and raise me growing up not letting me get everything I want, they make me work hard by just having high grades in school.
    6) My parents are very similar to my grandparents on raising me, but instead maybe a little less strict. They both showed there loving for us in a way.

    Part 2:
    1) Western mothers are more relaxed and less stressed about their child’s school or high grades, while as the Tiger moms they would be more strict about their high grades and school. Western mothers would give their child more freedom to participate in different activities, but the Tiger moms they would just limit their child’s activities to just playing instruments. Western moms would allow their children to hangout with their friends and be on the computer or watching television.
    2) Chinese mother believe if you make your child focus on academics instead sports and other things like that, they think you will be more successful in future and will work hard for everything that you do. They want you to become the best and most successful person that you can be, so you don’t have to struggle later in life.
    3) The daughter might have felt that way because she isn’t used to a father giving his daughter compliment like that. They are usually used to hearing compliments that would put them down and would be thought highly by their parents.
    4) Tiger moms are just more strict about their child’s academics and future. They believe that all parents should push their kids in order for them to be successful. Western moms would not stress there children so mush on academics but would encourage them more to join sport teams and also join extracurricular activities.
    5)Tiger moms: This a weakness, by being very strict on children and limiting their activities you are not letting them socialize with other people, not letting them explore the world and themselves. This is a strength, by being very strict on children to focus on their academics so they can stride for their goals in life and work hard for it. Making them become responsible and independent people.
    Western moms: Its a weakness for children when the parents don’t make them focus on school and their academics, instead these moms would let them play sport, hangout with their friends, and be on social media a lot which can distract them from learning. But by letting kids socialize and exploring the world, and them having their own experiences this would be a strength because you are opening the world up to them.

  7. pierce hili says:

    Hey Ms. Johnson its Pierce again thanks for the email this is the second part.
    Part 2
    1. Western Parents are different than “Tiger Moms” in a few ways. Tiger mom demand their children to be the top of the class while western parents want their child to try their best. Tiger mom make their children practice an instrument for several hours a day, while most Western parents usually make them practice for an hour at the most. Tiger mom usually complete academic activities 10 times more than Western parents. Tiger moms want their child to practice over and over until their child excels at whatever they are doing reguardless of how the child feels. Western parents would usually give up if the child does not enjoy what they are doing. Tiger moms feel that they know what is best for their child and will act on that without discussing with their child. Western parents give their children more freedom to make their own decisions.
    2. Tiger moms emphasize more drill and practice when learning new things because they think that something is fun only if you are good at it. The better they are at it, the more fun it will be. It also makes them seem like a better parent when their child excels at something.
    3. I think the daughter felt like garbage when her father called her “beautiful and incredibly competent” because competent is the ability to do something successfully. The father said she has the ability to do something successfully but has not actually done anything.
    4. Tiger moms and Western parents differ in mindset. Tiger moms feel that their child has the ability to get the best grades. If they don’t recieve those grades then they did not work hard enough. Tiger moms feel as if their children owe them for everything they do. Western parents feel that since it was not the childs decision to be brought into this world, they don’t owe their parents anything. Tiger moms also do what they think is right for their child reguardless of how their child feels.
    5. A strength in Tiger moms is that their child will be very successfull and will have a good life. However, they may be an outcast with others, have a bad relationship with their parents, and may become extremly unhappy because success is only one of few things that can make you happy. A strength in western parenting is that the child may have a good relationship with their parents and have a good social life. Those two things can have a great impact on an indvidual. However one may not use their full potential which would be a waste.

  8. lizdrizzle says:

    Hi ms. Johnson its lisette,
    1. I have authoritative parents.
    2. For example if i do something wrong my parents will give me a punishment and there will be consequences, showing how my parents are strict but they wont make me feel bad about my self they’ll just give me advice and say i can do better and want the best for me, showing warmth.
    3. Permissive parents frequently have difficulty with their children long term because they are neglecting and carless of their children they also are detached which will effect there children because then they can do whatever they want because of careless parents and it can lead to their children getting in the wrong path because there is no one to guide them.
    4. I think authoritative style of parenting is the most affective because it combines warmth with strictness, so if i child does something wrong there parents will be their to guide them but they wont be mean and make the child feel bad. They show affection but aren’t push overs and now their children have limits and know where to draw the line.
    5. My parents both said that their parent were very strict when they were kids and that they were not allowed to go out all the time, and that they had many responsibilities as a kid for example, cooking, cleaning and helping around the house. My parents say that this influenced them to not give there children to many responsibilities so they can just focus in school and that they don’t want to be as strict as their parents where because they want their kids to be open with them and be able to talk about anything.
    6. My parents are very different from their parents because their parents weren’t always there for them and weren’t supportive to give them everything they needed and didn’t push them to do the best they could in school, they also are not as close to strict as there parents were and they give me and my sister encouragement,warmth,support and are always here for us whenever we need them.

    PART 2
    1. Chinese parents want there kids to only get straight A’s and western parents just ask for the best from their children.If a chinese child does bad in school there will be screaming and chinese parents will be cruel but with western children their parents do not want to make them feel insecure or be cruel and will just express feelings of disapproval. Chinese parents believe that their kids owe them everything but western parents believe its their responsibility to provide for them.Chinese parents believe they know what is best for their children thats why they down consider their childrens own desires, but western parents believe their childrens idividuality is important.
    2. Tiger moms emphasize and drill their children so much more on their skills because they believe the worst thing they could do as a parent is give up on their children and thats theres nothing better for there confidence that learning to do something that you thought you couldn’t.
    3. I think the daughter felt this way because she knew that her dad was not being honest with her and he was just lying in order to make her feel better.
    4. Tiger moms want there children to get straight A’s and drill them and make them practice for hours and are cruel and mean just to make there child do the best that they can but western moms are more considerate of their childerns desires and feelings and just expect the best that they can do from them.
    5. With tiger moms i think the weakness is that they might damage their childrens self esteem by being mean and cruel even if they believe there just doing it to make them work harder, they also are too strict and this can lead children to be sneaky and do things behind their back, the positive is that they don’t give up on their children.
    With western moms they let their children have there own desires, find themsleves and express their individuality, they also are considerate of their emotions. Something negative is that they may let there children’s grades not be the best that they could be in order not to hurt their feelings.

  11. nickbotero says:

    Hi Ms.Johnson its Nick Happy New Years hope your enjoying your vacation ..
    1)Do you have authoritative, authoritarian, or permissive ?
    I only live with my mom and i’d say that shes an authoritarian parent.
    2)Explain by citing examples to illustrate
    For example if i start to slack in school and i get bad grades my mom sometimes would take away my xbox , my phone , or sometimes she would tell me i cant go to basketball practice because school comes first and same goes if i dont do no chores around the house.
    3)Using the pie chart on page 237, discuss why permissive parents frequently have difficulty with their children long term?
    According to the chart permissive parents have difficulty with their children long term because their children would feel they could do whatever they want . Most parents would careless about their child and try to detach themselves of having a relationship with their child.
    4)What type of parenting do you believe is most effective? Explain.
    I think the strict parent is the most effective because it can set the child straight even at a young age . Strict parents impose many rules & keep a close eye on their child. I feel this type of parent is more effective but to be honest i wasnt raised by a strict mom . i was raised with a warm strict permissive mom. She gives me a lot of freedom but when it comes to school shes very strict about it and sometimes cleaning my room not very much .
    5)Interview your parents and ask them what their experiences were as a child and how this shaped their parenting style raising you.
    Well i interviewed my mom & she said it was a very different parenting style mostly because she was raise in Greece with her mom. My mom she exactly had a perfect life but she was always disciplined and was always very good in school in fact that she skipped 9th grade because she was ahead and very smart. But when she was home she always done her hw first , her chores such as cleaning the whole house , laundry , doing the dishes , etc , & then she would go out with her friends . Her mom’s parenting style shaped her paretning style in ways that she always had me do chores , do my homework before i could go out , always clean my room & most important always have a good attitude in school by doing all my work . At 13 ,14 yrs old my mom was already working earning her money because her mom wanted to teach her responsiblities and it made her mature .
    6)How are they similar to their parents? How are they different?
    There are similiar because they all kept it real and never had their children or me on a leash . My grandmother taught my mom to be disciplined and how to take responsiblity . That carried on to my mom and that what she has taught me . There different because when my mom was younger she would get hit here and there even when she got a little older . But my mom she never really hit me cause she always told me that hitting wouldnt really solve anything it would just make the situation even worse. But now as i compare there parenting style its very different cause my grandmother was very strict with my mom about everything & now my mom isnt strict she’s just very calm laid back and just tells me to work hard if i want to succeed in anything .

    1)Identify five ways Western parents are different from Tiger Moms.
    Chinese parents want there kids to get nothing below an A and western parents just ask for the best from their children they dont ask much . Chinease parents also want there kids to play an intrument either a violin or paino. Western parents make their children practice their instruments 30 minutes a day , an hour at most .
    2)Why do Tiger Moms emphasize so much more drill and practice in learning new skills?
    Tiger moms emphasize so much on drill and practice in learning new skills because they want want you to become the most successful person that you can be, so you don’t have to struggle later on in life.
    3)In the article Amy Chua remarks, “I also once heard a Western father toast his adult daughter by calling her “beautiful and incredibly competent.” She later told me that made her feel like garbage. ” Why do you think the daughter felt this way?
    The daughter felt this way because she probably isnt used to hearing compliments like that.

    Parenting 101—
    1. I have Authoritative parents
    2. Some exampled would be all they want is the best for me so they show me the way by challenging myself. Meaning, if school work is not to where its supposed to be they will get upset and lecture me on the class and so on. Also, if i did something bad they either scream or just send me to my room.
    3. Permissive parents have trouble with their children because they neglect their kids and when kids are neglected or not cared for they tend to have the mindset that they can do whatever they want because if they get into trouble they will know their parents won’t care. So if their mom or dad tells them to stop what they are doing, they won’t.
    4. The best type of parenting would be strict. Its not too much nor too little for both the parent and the son/daughter. You show care but at the same time who is the boss.
    5. My parent’s experience were almost the same. They both had really strict parents and were taught their manners well. If they didnt do good in school, they were punished or spanked .
    6. They are similar when teaching manners and strict but just when school work wasn’t what they expected me and my sister did not get spanked or punished.

    Tiger Moms—-
    1. Parents from the West are relaxed with school and dont have as much high standards for high grades as much as the chinese mothers. Also, chinese kids dont have much privileges to go out or choose what they want to do. Finally, the instruments they have to play are chosen by their parents and barely no TV.
    2. Chinese parents stress repetition because they feel that all the hard work and practice will pay off at the end.
    3. She felt this way because she knew her father was not telling the truth and knows they are lying because they are never like that and never compliment her.
    4. Tiger moms care but not to an extent where they show it. They want to challenge their kids and make decisions for them. Western parents differ because they care and show it and let their kids do their own choices when it comes to life making decisions and school.
    5. Tiger moms
    + Wants the best for their kids.
    -Dont give them space.
    Western Parents
    + Show love and care.
    – Sometimes give their kids too much space and they flunk.
    – D. Urena

    Hi Ms. Johnson its me Armando.

    1. I have authoritative parents.
    2. Examples of me having authoritative parents would be that they never want me to get less then an 85 in any class, and they are supportive of me in anything like sports or what i want to be when I’m older.
    3. Permissive parents have difficulty with their children long term because in the book it says that they are inconsistent, which means that they are not really concerned with what their child does. Permissive parents also forget about their child and they would show little or no interest in anything the child tries to do.
    4. To me, the most effective form of parenting is to be authoritative because this would mean the parent would always be interested in what the child does, and they would show affection and never let the kid feel neglected.
    5. My parents were raised authoritative because they were both raised with the fact that they always had to be good in school, follow rules, and help out in any way possible if they wanted to hang out with their friends or when they needed money. My parents believed this was a good method and they use it on me by making me work with my dad if i want something or if i want to do something.
    6. They are similar to their parents because they set rules and regalations to me if i want to do something. But they are different because my grandparents are strict and made them work harder and they were rewarded less. My parents also give me more freedom then what they were given before.

    1. Five ways western parents are different to tiger moms is that the tiger moms only expect high grades for their children, while the western parents settle for any passing grade. Second, the tiger moms want their child to only play instruments for hours while western parents let their child do what they like. Third, the tiger moms dont allow their child to play or watch tv while the western parents allow their child to do that everyday. Forth, the tiger moms dont want their kids choosing their own extracurricular activity. Lastly the tiger moms only want their child to be the best student in every class.
    2. Tiger moms emphasize practice in learning a new skill so that the child will eventually believe the new skill is fun and will want to do it more. (Like school or playing an instrument)
    3. I think the daughter felt that way because maybe she sees something wrong in her whether it’s physical or internally and she migh feel her father is lying to her.
    4. Tiger moms and western parents have different mind sets in that tiger moms will say what’s wrong with what you are doing and being the best is a must, while western parents believe that as long as a child tried their best its good enough.
    5. To be like a tiger mom is strong because you are setting your child to believe that they must be the best, but it is weak because you might hurt your child with what you say or do to them. To be like a western parent is also strong bacause you make the child not feel downgraded or not smart enough, but it is weak because you might not be able to see the full potential of the child.

  14. Hi Mrs. Johnson it’s Sabrina.
    1. My parents are authoritative.
    2. The example that I could show that my parents are authoritative is when I don’t do chores around the house they will take out the privilege of me going out on the weekends with friends.
    3. Permissive parents have trouble with their children in the long term because they don’t teach their children what is right from wrong. They won’t have a “backbone” to rely on. They won’t really have a successful life because they lack in neatness and cleanliness which their parents were never strict about.
    4. The type of parenting that I believe is more effective is a strict parent but not that strict. A parent must have trust in their kid. If they’re strict on them and don’t allow them to do stuff they like they’ll feel neglected and would do it anyways. I believe parents should be strict when necessary.
    5. When my parents were young their parents were super strict. Didnt allow them to hang out alot or be out on the streets. Their parents just wanted them to focus on family and school. This shaped their way of parenting now because they learned that there was no reason for their parents to be super strict.
    6. They are similar to their parents because my mom is a bit strict when i go out. She has to know who I’m hanging out with, where, and what am i going to do. They are different than their parents because they learned that its good to have trust in your child and have that friendly bond but still act like a parent.

    Tiger moms
    1. 5 ways western moms are different from tiger moms is:
    Western parents would allow their children to have sleepovers because that’s a way of being friendly, while Chinese parents don’t approve sleepovers.
    Western parents allow their children to chose what instrument they would like to play and Chinese parents chose a specific one.
    Western parents tell their child to do their best in school.
    Western parents let them choose what extracurricular activities they can play.
    Western parents are way more chilled out than Chinese parents.
    2. Chinese parents emphasize much more drill and practice because they believe they can be better than what they already are.
    3. They daughter reacted that way because she probably isn’t use to hearing that.
    4. Tiger moms push their kids to the limit until they succeed so much that they can’t succeed anymore. Western parents push their kids as well but they understand that they can only push them to a certain extent.
    5. The strength in this point of view is that western parents keep their children satisfied and the tiger moms make their children successful. The negative strength in this point of view is that western parents could be seen as more laid back and not parenting right and tiger moms might make their children stressed out or frustrated.

  15. krs95 says:

    Hi Ms. Johnson its Christian Inga

    1) I have authoritative parents.
    2) the reason that my parents are authoritative parents is that they only want the best for me. one example is when i do something wrong like come home late, don’t do good in school i get my xbox taken away until i prove that i deserve it. They also talk to me and tell me i could be anything i want to be but that’s all up to me, they also support my ideas but only if they are reasonable.
    3) permissive parents frequently have difficulty with their children long term because they neglect their children they never spend time with them they also are careless with their children they let them do whatever they want.
    4) I believe that authoritative is the type of parenting that is more effective because it shows warmth with positive kind of strictness. It shows that the parents will punish their child but in away that they show them that they still loves them and that they cant get away with anything.
    5) My parents both lived different lives. My mo grew up with both her parents . she was the oldest of 5 kids and she had many responsibility. she had to cook, clean, and take care of all of them. Her father was very strict. My father had a very different childhood he didn’t grow up with either of his parents. he grew up with his uncle and by 16 he moved out and lived on his own. this is the reason my mom is very strict with me and my dad isn’t as much.
    6) my moms parents were similar with her parents because they grew up working.

    PART2
    1) One way that Western parents are different from Tiger Moms is that
    – Chinese parents want there kids to get straight A’s while Western parents just wanted their kids to try their best and never give up.
    -the second difference is that Chinese moms don’t let their kids pick any activity’s they want to do. but western parents give their children a little more freedom.
    -Chinese parents don’t listen to what the child has to say but western parents do listen.
    -Western parents are extremely anxious about their children’s self-esteem. but Chinese parents never ask whats wrong.
    -Chinese parents say that they know what is best for their children, but Western parents try to respect their children, and inspiring them in anything they want to do.
    2) Tiger Moms emphasize so much more drill and practice in learning new skills because they will get better and it will be useful in the future.
    3) I think that the daughter fells that way because she felt that her father didn’t mean it and the she doesn’t get complements so she doesn’t no how to think of it.
    4) Tiger Moms and Western parents differ in mind set is that tigers moms want their children to be there best at everything because they fell that they own them. but western mom don’t fell that why they just want their kids to try hard and never give up
    5) three strength are
    – Chinese kid will be successful in life because they were away had to be the best at everything especial in school.
    -western kids will never give up and they will try their best.
    -western kids will have successful because they were treed with respect and to work very hard
    Three weakness are
    – Chinese kids have very little self-esteem because their parents pick and make their kids do what they want them to do.
    _Chinese kids will be very quite and not as out going because all they do is go to school and practice they where never able to go to sleepover.
    -Chinese kids will be less friendly because they never had a much friends to talk.

    Armani M.

    1.Tiger moms and western parents are different because:-tiger moms don’t allow their children to chose their clubs
    – Tiger moms don’t allow T.V.
    – Anything less than an A is unacceptable for a tiger mom
    – The article says that tiger moms won’t allow their children to play any instruments other than the violin or piano
    – Spending time with friends seems to be taboo according to the article for tiger moms

    2.Why do Tiger Moms emphasize so much more drill and practice in learning new skills?
    They want their children to enjoy certain activities so they have them practice so that they will be skilled at theses things since it’s easier to like something you’re good at.

    3.In the article Amy Chua remarks, “I also once heard a Western father toast his adult daughter by calling her “beautiful and incredibly competent.” She later told me that made her feel like garbage. ” Why do you think the daughter felt this way
    the daughter probably felt that her father was only saying it to make her feel better

    4.How do Tiger Moms and Western parents differ in mind set?
    Tiger moms assume their children are strong enough to handle their teaching style while western parents worry if their child is strong enough to keep up with their peers.

    5.Identify and explain what you believe is both a strength and a weakness in these point of views.
    Tiger Moms: Makes sure children have a strong work ethic and are used to hardship, but restrains individuality
    Western parents: Treated like they’re weak which can cause problems with their self esteem and doesn’t prepare them for life as well, but is more understanding of difficulties and allows for more social interaction

  17. jasonjeansjp says:

    Hello Mrs.Johnson Part 1
    1.I have an athoratative parent.
    2. For example mother is my rock and vice versa, my mother would work, talk, and explain to me what i would do wrong and would give me two blunt options, either do what i have to do to better myself correctly and make her and myself proud or live a miserable unsocial and “dictation syled life”
    3. Permissive parents usually have a problem with their children because they would give into to their childs wants at such an early age with out establishing a proper disciplanary, reward system therefore in laymans terms raising “brats”.
    4. I think athorative style is the best to raise with your children.I believe this because I believe that if a parent establishes a proper work/reward system thier child will grow up to understand the conaequences of her or his actions latter in life.
    5.I do not know much about my father(if he deserves thath title). But Mrs Johnson my loving mother was the 5th out of 7 daughters.My mother along with her sisters had many responsibilites especially since she grew up in Brasil and Haiti. My mother had a strict lifestyle (athtarian) different from mine.
    6.My mother was a bit of a “hybrid” of her parents because she had a certain amount of strictness near my grandfather, but the humor and compassion of my grandmother.

  18. Michael Drobenko says:

    1. Five ways Western parents are different from Tiger moms are that Tiger parents do not let their children choose their after school activities when Western mothers give their children choices on what they want to do, Tiger moms do not accept anything less than an “A” in school when Western moms want their children to try and do their best, Tiger moms do not listen to what their children have to say unlike Western moms who do, Western moms let their children go out with friends, have fun, and be a child unlike Tiger moms, and Western parents are more concerned about their children and their problems unlike Tiger moms who do not.
    2. Tiger moms emphasize more drill and practice to their children’s new skills because they want them to become masters at what they do, be more than the best they can be.
    3. The daughter probably felt like garbage because she might have thought her father was sarcastic and or she just never had a complement from him like that.
    4. Tiger mom and Western parents differ in mind set because Tiger moms are much more strict, harsh, demanding, unlike Western moms who just want the best for their children and give them choices.
    5. I believe that the Tiger moms being so demanding and strict is a good thing because their kids are going to become ridiculous and one of the best at what they do. All the practice they got will make life much easier. But it is a bad thing because those kids will have no social skills and be very awkward. And Western moms ways of raising kids are mostly a good thing. Their kids will most likely be more socially active and not awkward. They can also be the best at what they do with the amount of practice they had. These kids will also more choices and enjoy their childhood much more.

  19. karinadowdd says:

    HI Johnson ,its Karina Dowd
    Part 1
    1.Authoritative
    2.My parents always make rules and except me to follow them but their very flexible when it need to be changed. Like if i want to hang out on a school night and i promise my parents ill do all my homework before i go out.
    3.Permissive parents have to many types of personalities that give mix signals.
    4.I believe Authoritative parenting is more effect because your being strict with kindness.
    5. Her mother was very strict , she based her parenting on education not on looks. My mom is flexible but wants me to put my education first instead of looks as well.
    6. My mom isn’t very strict but wants me to use my full potential. They both have the same idea about brains over brawn’s .

    Part 2
    1.Western’s make their children practice their instruments 30 minutes every day. For a Chinese mother, it can be 1-3 hours.
    -Chinese parents can get away with calling their children “garbage” when western parents are usually sensitive towards their child’s feelings.
    -Chinese parents can order their kids to get straight As. Western parents can only ask their kids to try their best.
    -Western parents are concerned about their children’s self-esteem. Chinese parents aren’t. They assume strength, not fragility.
    -If a child of a Chinese parent came with a grade lower than an A , it wouldn’t be acceptable . But if a western parent did , they’d either reward the child or have a sit down and figure things out.
    2. Western mothers said either that “stressing academic success is not good for children” or that “parents need to foster the idea that learning is fun.” Also they believe that their child is doing the best they can.
    3. Maybe she thought her father was joking and felt like he had to lie to make her happy .
    4.Tiger moms belive if the child is filling their expiation they haven’t done their job and western parents are sensitive to their child and how they feel and will tell them their doing the best they can.
    5. A tiger mom can be to strict and stress the child out , but it can also push the child forward to success because failure isn’t an option, Western parents can be too soft , making excuses for their faults but it also protect their selfish-steam.

  20. daniaidette says:

    1. Both of my parents have different parenting styles, my mom is more Authoritative my father is Authoritarian.
    2. I say my mom is more Authoritative because she’s strict but warm with me. My father on the other hand is an Authoritarian because he’s cold and what he says goes point blank.
    3. Permissive parents frequently have trouble with their children long term because they aren’t attached, as caring, and protective but they are the opposite and have more of a loose parenting style.
    4. I think Authoritative is a more effective parenting style because not only is the parent strict but also rewarding and warm. This then shows the child that their are times to take things serious and time to be a little leaniant.
    5. My moms parents were pretty strict on her. Because the way her parents were to her and she didn’t like it much she changed her parenting style.
    6. My mom is simliar with the strictness but different because she is warm and loving with me.
    Part 2.
    1. Five ways Western parents and different from Tiger moms is they wouldnt allow their children to attend sleepovers, have a play date, get a grade less than an A, be in a school play, and to not complain about not being in a school play.
    2. Tiger moms emphasize so much on drill and practice in learning new skills because they believe their children can be “the best.”
    3.I think the daughter felt that way because she probably thought he was being sarcastic.
    4.Tiger moms and Western moms differ in mind set is that Tiger moms don’t worry about hurting their child self esteem but to push then to strive thier best unlike Western parents that let their kids give up if they feel they can not do it.
    5. Tiger moms strength is the pursuative they are about bringing the best in their children but weakness is the way they talk to their children without care. Western mom strengths is that they still give their kids admiration when bringing home A- or Bs. Weakeness if that if their child doesn’t want to do something then they wont push them to.

  21. Jake King says:

    PART 1:
    1. My parents are authoritative i also think that it is a good thing because it shows they care about me.
    2. I think that my parents are authoritative because they let me get away with somethings but not everything.
    3. prmissive parents have trouble raising there kids because there kids dont listen them because they show there kids that they dont care about them.
    4. I think that authoritative parenting is the most effective because shows your kids that you care but you also give them some space to grow up.
    5.My mom said that her mom was very strict and demanding and that this made her more strict as a parent but not as strict because she knows that kids also need so space to experience life and learn things on there own.
    6. Similarities she has is when it comes to school she is very strict, but when it comes to going out she is less strict.

  22. michivas12 says:

    hey ms. johnson =)
    1.My mom used to be Authoritarian but recently they turned Authoritative, however my dad is still an authoritarian.
    2.Some example of my parents being authoritarians are: when i was younger they used to yell, scream, or even hit me just to get me to do what they felt was “right.” Even though my father is still like that, since my mom lives out of state she trust me to do what i feel is right for me but their always advising me and telling me what they feel is right.
    3.Permissive parents are frequently having trouble with their children, long term because they tend to be spoiled and are used to getting their way which could hurt them in the future.
    4.I think that Authoritative is the most effected way of parenting because of the i got to experience both. I get a long way better with my mom and have a much better relationship, as opposed to my father who i honestly don’t really care if i have a relationship with.
    5.My mom said that her experience s a child was very strict because of her parents, but still had a nice childhood and enjoyed life. Her parenting stills are much different because even though she tries to install disciplent in me she still always tries to fair with me.

    1.5 ways that Western parents are different from Tigers moms are: they never allowed their kids 1)to attend sleepovers 2)be in school plays 3)watch tv or play computer games 4)choose their own extracurricular activities 5)not play the piano or violin.
    2.Tigers moms emphasize so much on drill and practice in learning new skills because they believe if they do so their children could be “the best.”
    3.I think the daughter felt bad because she probably felt like she deserved a better compliment.
    4.Tigers moms and Western moms differ in minds set because Western mom care more for their children emotionally, Tigers moms who don’t care about anything but success from their children.
    5.I think that the strengths of these points of views are that it indeed does get them prepared and it makes kids see that they actually are capable of doing things they didn’t think they could do. But the weaknesses is that they don’t let kid be kids. How is a 7 year old going to live without ever playing, or watching tv. Those kids might be book smart when they grow up but they will never be street smart which is also very important.

  23. jenabbi96 says:

    Hey Ms J, Jeanette here, this is Part 2 of the assignment ! 🙂

    1. Western Parents are different from Tiger Moms because

    – Western parents make their children practice their instruments 30 minutes everyday while the Chinese mothers make their children practice their instruments for almost three hours.
    – Western mothers feel stressing academic success is not good for children while Chinese mothers felt that the best students are created through successful parenting , and if children did not excel in school then there was a problem and the parents felt that they weren’t doing their job.
    – Chinese parents spend approximately 10 times as long every day drilling academic activities with their children while the Western kids are more likely to participate in sports teams.
    – Chinese Parents wouldn’t allow their child to go and sleepover their friends house while a western parent wouldn’t mind.
    -chinese mothers get away with more than the western parents would.

    2.Tiger moms emphasize so much drill and practice in learning new skills because they want their children to be the best at everything and it may be beneficial to them later on in life.
    3. The daughter felt this was because she probably felt he was only trying to cheer her up and he didn’t mean it.
    4. Tiger Moms feel that “putting their child down” really isn’t putting their child down , its encouraging them to do better because they know that their child can do so much better. Western Parents are concerned about the child and feel that putting the child down will only make them fell worse and their self esteem will go down the drain.
    5. In the “Tiger Moms” point of view , the strength for them is that they work their child unit they do it correctly and then the child feels gratitude and won’t ever make many mistakes . The weakness in this parenting style is that putting the child down amounts to arguing and diminishes the childs self esteem and makes them feel worthless. In the Western Parents , the weakness in this parenting style is that the child isn’t dedicated to putting the amount of work thats needed to complete the piece because its challenging. The strength is that they use their words wisely because they are concerned about the child’s well being.

  24. Hello its Celeste DeNisco
    Part 1
    1. authoritarian parents.
    2. My parents only let me go out with my friends if my grades are well. If not im not able to go outside, im basically punished.
    3. Permissive parents frequently have problems with there child because there child becomes spoiled and is used to the fact of getting everything. The parents are inconsistent with there child.
    4. i think that an authoritarian parenting style is more affective because your not giving in to the child or letting the child get away with anything that can repeat it self.
    Example: when you tell you child to go do his/her chores and they continue not to do them, since they didn’t do it you take away there video games ect.
    5. My Father & Mother are both very strict individuals. My father always wants me to do better and do great. He pushes me and if i were to do bad i wouldn’t get what ever i wanted or the ability to hang out that weekend. My mother she also does the same.
    6. My mother & father are nothing like my grandmother or grandfather. Both my grandmothers were strict if you didn’t do what you were told to do you got a beating. They both used force. They were more rules back then when it came to parenting i believe. This generation isn’t as strict thats why i believe they are all different from one another.
    Part 2
    1.five ways Western parents are different from Tiger Moms.
    -Chinese mothers will call there children names like fat or garbage & westerners usually beat around the bush
    -chinese mothers make there children get high grades “A’s” & western parent just allow thier children to try there best.
    – Western parents don’t like to bring down there children’s self-esteem level they rather boost it. Chinese mothers push u and make u stronger.
    -Chinese mothers feel as if all there hard work should grant them a reward in return and western feel as parents they are obligated to do this for there child for nothing in return .
    – chinese mother basically force you to do what they want because what they want is best for you. Western parents want you to do your best and chase your dreams
    2.Tiger mothers believe they know whats best for there children and to get what they want there children to do is by drilling in everything and making them practice on hours of a time.
    3. She felt this way because her own father was basically lying to her face. She felt like that cause she knew it wasn’t the truth
    4.tiger mothers are more about be successful and doing what you have to do to achieve greatness with no flaws or mistakes. Western mothers they believe that you have to chase what you want and not what she has planned out for you like a tight mother.
    5. Tiger mother strength i believe is the demanding and the ability to push there child to greatness. the weakness is the unaffectionate: bring there children’s self-esteem low.
    Western mothers strength i believe is caring to be able to love the child and not expect anything from them weakness is that they are to flexible and allow anything to happen.

  25. jasonjeansjp says:

    Tiger Moms
    1. Tiger moms are different because they dont allow children to have social options (clubs,sleepovers,playdates etc).
    Tiger moms dont settle for anything less than A.
    Tiger Moms are very strict with their children
    Tigermoms are very blunt and cement thier dominance with their children at an early age.
    Tiger moms dont allow their children to play any instruments beside classical ones.
    2. Tiger moms do this because they believe without a doubt that its their way or the highway with their children.
    3.I think the girl felt that way because she proably felt superior and needed a better compliment.
    4. I beleieve tiger moms and western ones differ because tiger moms are incredibly strict,to the point of being a bit like dictators. while not all but most western moms are alitttle more relaxed and “democratic” with their children.
    5.The tiger mothers strength is that she pours all of her love and passion for her children into “blind fury”, while western mothers are more relaxed and compassionate.

  26. tyrellcosten says:

    1) Authoritative
    2) If my grades drop in school, I would be disciplined by not being able to do thing that I like such as, playing basketball or watching T.V. It would be seen as a distraction according to my parents. Once I raised my grades back up, my restrictions would be lifted and I would be rewarded.
    3) Permissive parents have difficulties because they are not as consistent or as involved as they should be. They don’t take enough necessary action to make sure their children are on point.
    4) I think Authoritative is the most effective because it disciplines unacceptable behavior and lackadaisical effort, and reinforces good rewards success.
    5) My mother’s parents displayed both affection and discipline which she does now with me
    6) They are similar because the display the same parenting that were instilled in them by their parents
    Part 2
    1) Tiger moms demand their children to be the top of the class while western parents want their child to try their best. Tiger moms make their children practice an instrument for more hours than Western parents. usually make them practice for an hour at the most. Tiger mom usually complete more academic activities while Western parents complete more sports activities. Tiger moms demand their children to practice to excel regardless of how the child feels while Western parents would not force their child to do something they don’t enjoy. Tiger moms feel that they know what is best for their child and will act on that without discussing with their child
    2) Tiger moms emphasize this to instill a good work ethic and determination. They also do it to help them be more successful in dealing with the challenges of the future
    3) I think the daughter felt like this because she feels that in her father’s eyes, she not at her true or doesn’t complete meet his expectations because she is only competent.
    4) Tiger moms focus much more on the future of their children so the set strict rules and hard work ethic while Western moms focus more on the growth on their children and make sure that they can enjoy their childhood before becoming adults
    5) The strengths of having a very strict work ethic and rules early on is that it helps the child focus and be less distracted by social life. It also help their determination and face any challenge head on until they complete instead of giving up. The weakness of this is that they may not be able to enjoy their childhood or have a decent social life. Also it may cause the child to be very dependent on their parents since their parents controlled most of their actions. The strengths of a Western parent mind set is that they will be able to grow and expand socially and can become much more independent. The weakness is that they may lose focus of what is important between a social life and an academic life
