Tiger parenthood

The cheek of many of us to live our unfulfilled dreams through our children who in the first place did not ask to be born.

We think we can demand that our children take up unnecessary classes, which are not really for ‘their own good’ but for our vanity: from piano to violin to martial arts to drama lessons, all for the glory of us.

Worse, we think that we are able to control their destinies and plan for them that eventual medical or legal degree and claim that it is but for their future, their sakes.

Oh, the travails of tiger parenthood.
