A Post By: Darren Rowse Today while sorting through some old boxes I found a photo album filled with the first ever photos that I took as a young budding photographer.

High Expectations Asian Father plays on the stereotype of demanding, perfection-seeking Asian parents, as they push their children past the limits of endurance in matters of education and overall performance. The meme was developed and became popular in 2010. While being a stereotype, the meme is still popular with all people who have ever had someone push them to do better, though much of the humor lies in the perception of Asian parents, particularly of the first generation, pressuring their children to work harder and do better or suffer their wrath in the form of grave disappointment. There exists also a site called AsianDad.com, which similarly plays on the notion that an Asian dad is demanding top notch performance, and users can actually sign up to get text messages sent to them from their “Asian Dad”, in order to help them work harder.

If you read it, please feel free to offer comments and suggestions. Introduction Some language educators are turning to Web-based social networks in an effort to motivate their students beyond the carrot-and-stick methods of the traditional classroom.
