I strongly recommend this book for all Asian parents and their children. Never too late to learn!
He approaches the challenges Asian American's face with sensitivity and the cultural wisdom of someone who has been in the trenches himself as well as with those he has counseled. One thing I really appreciate about this book is that he doesn't make sweeping judgments of any particular group and instead acknowledges the nuance that Asian Americans (and all people, for that matter) have. And yet he is still able to impart important cultural points that are faced.
Immensely practical, he covers a wide range of topics. Here are several bits of wisdom that I've chewed on:
"Perfectionism is itself an imperfect state."
"depression is like wearing a dirty pair of glasses. It doesn't alter reality, but it does change your perception of reality"
"If you can experience a healthy sense of freedom and exercise your ability to say no to the demands of others in a healthy way, the need for sticking it to others in an unhealthy way will dissipate."
"as a parent...you need to teach your children how to put emotional language into practice- they need to have experiences putting words to feelings, to know that their feelings are valid and real and not anything to be afraid of or ashamed of."
Thanks for writing this insightful book.
