    Why are some asian (pakistani) parents so dam strict? My parents are always trying to control my every move bt now that i applying to university and stuff they want me to do everything their way! They are so backward and they want me to live the way that they did and it is soooo frustrating. Imagine having to come home to lectures everyday i swear down i have had enough of them!!

    Lol. I thought i had it bad with mine, but a pakistani muslim female probably has it a lot worse :p:

    Ultimately there's little you can do to seriously escape their chokehold, other than disappear one day, because their culture and beliefs will make them attempt to dominate your life one way or another.

    With Hindus there tends to be some middle ground, but i imagine this is not really present for Muslims.

    Best of luck to you breaking out :yy:

    It's because you are going to get a good education and you are going to become a doctor and then you are going to be married to a wealthy and upstanding man and you will have many children.

    Mine are cool.

    They raised me with quite liberal attitudes (for an Asian family that is!) but I grew up cherishing my culture and its relatively conservative values in comparison with those of my British friends.

    I suppose the more parents force an illiberal attitude down their kids' throats, the more they'll try to "break free" from it and therefore reject much else of their heritage with it.
