Mine realized a year or two ago that doing the Asian thing puts huge depression and anxiety on kids. (they don't know i had it) and so they more or less put a laissez faire policy(let it be) for me.
Oh you got _____. Could use work. But whatever.
They make jokes about getting the A or an award a lot or just calling my stuff average. Kinda jokingly .But nothing big.
Quote from mom:
"Don't put to much pressure on yourself for college. Whatever college is fine" but of course obviously we always talk about the top choices and hopefully not going to the meh ones.
Mine don't do that. I remember the old "95%? Why didn't you get 100%?" or the classic, "Full marks? Nice job, keep it up."
My parents aren't quite so pushy with telling me to get a girlfriend though, for which I'm quite thankful.
