My two cousins both moved across the country for school and never came back. They are not on speaking terms with their Dad. The Dad and I suprisingly have a pretty good relationship and he tells me he regrets not letting them pursue their own interests and forced what he thinks will do them good down their throat. He is super lonely now....holidays, birthdays, Chinese NY they are alone in their huge house because their kids will not come home. One's an engineer with a failing marrage because of daddy issues the other is a career student that doesn't know how to make a cup of tea.

    I am going to let my kids try a lot differents sports and music but they will have to pick at least one of each on their own to pursue further.
    I disagree about being the exception but it's difficult since different people can take different levels of pressure. I also know a family who put intense pressure on the kids with extremely strict rules and expectations. Of the 3 children only one really rebelled to any extent.

    Otherwise, of all the asian families I know of none resent their parent's to the point of your example. They all have examples of one thing or another. Maybe something they didn't particularly like but I would expect every kid has some examples of not liking their parent's choice for them. Overall though most still have relationships with their parent's to some extent.

    All I know is that my two daughters need lots of formal activities, because holy fuck they have a lot of energy.

    Yeah it's basically the opposite of Montessori.

    I like to call it "old-school". Popular with immigrants. I think it's horrible.

    Man it's weird coming on beyond and looking for child advice, but now I'm posting about my son...that being said my wife is all about the Montessori based learning.

    He's only 7 months, but we're looking at bright paths that has the montessori program for his daycare.

    Anyone have any recent experience with this?

    Pros/cons?

    All Montessori schools are different. You really have to visit them and see for yourself.
