Affordances and Constraints of Immigrant Chinese Parental Expectations on Children's School Perfomance.
Li, Jun
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v49 n2 p198-200 Sum 2003
Interviews with seven recent-immigrant Chinese families in Canada examined parental expectations of their children's school performance. Parents' expectations motivated their children to pursue goals with hard work, which enhanced self-efficacy and nurtured good study habits. However, high parental expectations and unwillingness to accommodate alternatives could result in counterproductive anxiety in their children. (TD)
