Asian Parents: Tiger Moms and Lion Dads

I had a short conversation with a friend of mine which made me realize something about typical Asian parents. It went something like this:

Friend: Psshhh, I’m Asian. It’s hard to mentally intimidate me.
Me: Yeah. We grow up with tiger moms and lion dads haha.
Friend: Exactly! Lions are a good way to describe dads. ‘Cause male lions usually just sit around. And eat. Haha and cast other males out. Like how our dads get rid of us through higher education.
Me: Yep. Tiger moms are fierce and stern but also encouraging. Lion dads look like they don’t care, but in reality are very protective.
