Summary: Chinese parents are stricter than western parents. They don't allow their child to do things that doesn't benefit in studies or other talented based activity to their child. In a study, 70% of the 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." but roughly none of the Chinese mothers felt the same way. They believe their children can be "the best" students, that "academic achievement reflects successful parenting," and that if children did not excel at school then there was "a problem" and parents "were not doing their job." if a Chinese child in the mother opinion is bad they would then get dozens, maybe hundreds of practice tests and work through them with her child for as long as it takes to get the grade up to an A.
Opinion: Chinese mother should let their child have some choices in what they want to do, everybody is born differently so if the child was to keep following what they had no interest in they won't end up being the best of everyone which mothers hope in. For western parent, their child was given too much of freedom so they can't be the best of what their parent want them to be. So to me I think the best way is to have a mix of western and Chinese parent concept so their child can be the best.
