This article discusses the parenting aspirations of Chinese immigrants,
looking in detail at a study in New Zealand. My discussion
of the topic centers on the aspirations of educated Chinese immigrants
for their preschool children, and their ways of parenting.
The “Tiger Mother” practice described in Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and other research on immigrant parenting, directed my attention to this subject. It is argued that in times of change from one context to another, parenting style is an attempt by Chinese immigrants to realize their immigration aspirations for a better life for themselves and their children.
