About this submission

Although it seems so obvious, parents really do shape their children. Bad parenting can create stress, fears, anxiety, revenge. Growing up with an Asian mother, I did feel a little anxious about her expectations of my success. She was nowhere near a "Tiger Mom", but she was academically strict. To me, she was my hero because she shaped me in the best ways. However, in some cases, parents are the villain in their children's lives. Watching some friends suffer under their strict parents, I could see why they detested them. I wanted to depict how parents create a resentful child.
