Arab and Chinese people have god like rote memorization but their countries are shitholes they don't produce any innovations and struggle to be competitive in everyway.Rote memory has an unfair bad press, but I am utterly convinced that having a good information base is essential to innovation. The more things you store in your memory, the more connection between them will you be attuned to.
It is a good thing to build up this information base from an early age, when children think of memorizing, say, a verse or the multiplication table, as games.
You make "incels" by telling boys they deserve the world simply by being alive, and this is a very American thing.
It depends what you are rote-memorizing. The Chinese be memorizing formulas for differential equations, and the Arabs be memorizing the Koran. One is more useful addition to the modern skillset than the other.Arab and Chinese people have god like rote memorization but their countries are shitholes they don't produce any innovations and struggle to be competitive in everyway.
To add to that, the Asian Americans we perceive in society are either immigrants who recently came to this country or their children, and a lot of Americans who know Asians as peers are going to be seeing them in either an educational or professional work setting, (aka student and H1-B visas).I really don't know if they do. Asians, just like some old school jews and other educated immigrant parents, tend to raise their children with strict discipline and demand success. This can work with some kids who manage to advance far as a result, but there's also lots of kids who just burn out and crash hard. This is in part because on top of having lived in a high stress hyper competitive atmosphere, they also can't conform to the stereotype of the successful hardworking Asian. I know a lot of Asian kids who fell through the cracks, and it also explains why Japan and South Korea have so many hikikomori and other NEETs.
"Well" is pretty subjective my bro.
I think the biggest issue with the prevailing Asian attitude towards parenting is that it's apparent successes clearly come at a significant cost to the individual.It's "well" to me. How would it not be "well" to anyone else?
