While a shirt that says “Not My Problem” may indicate a hint of implied indifference of its wearer, nothing could be further from the truth in the case of a Vietnamese mom who was seen sporting such tee while doing charity work.

Shopping for your parents is no easy task. You probably know them better than anyone else in the world, but somehow it’s intrinsically difficult to find them something that they’d actually like.

Here are some crowd-pleasers that even the strictest of Asian parents would like!
It’s no shock that many households will avoid turning on the heating or AC at literally all costs.
The typical parent response would be “PUT ON SOCKS,” “PUT ON MORE LAYERS,” and “WHY AREN’T YOU WEARING A JACKET?”
You probably begged your parents for a pet when you were growing up. Your classmates had a dog, a cat or even a hamster, but you were left to your own devices. Your strict Asian parents vehemently told you “absolutely no animals” in the house. You cried. It didn’t make a difference. And so, you resigned to Neopets or Club Penguin for another day.
You’re a bit older now and have finally gotten that pet you wanted so much for yourself. Well, guess what? Your parents love that pet to pieces! Sometimes you think even more than they love you.

A father who continually leaned forward at a 90 degree angle in order to create a comfortable “bed” for his sleeping daughter has warmed hearts online.

A father from Kitakyushu city, Japan was recently arrested after it was discovered he was using a shock collar for dogs to discipline his three children.

I rarely spoke to my parents about my mental health growing up because I feared that I would be scolded.
For many Asian Americans, talking about mental health issues, especially to their parents or family, is like pulling teeth.
It seems like every Asian child has at least one memorable ass whooping story they like to share on repeat.
