Recalibrate & Redefine to Live Free from Asian Parenting


Tiger parenting draws influence from the authoritarian parenting style, but it also has some aspects of helicopter parenting. The style of tiger parenting is seen as rigid, demanding, and oftentimes emotionally unsupportive. Children in this environment are conditioned to believe that high levels of success, primarily academic, come at any cost, which usually means no free time, playdates, sleepovers, or other youth activities.  Success is the first and foremost goal in the tiger parenting style. Children often comply with their parent’s demands out of fear of punishment, acceptance and yielding to the philosophy of filial piety.


Poised is a collection of helpful resources, articles, and advice on a multitude of topics that have helped us along our narrow way. In creating this space, our mission is to eliminate trauma bonding, normalize mental health and encourage self-growth for mental clarity and emotional wellness while navigating the tiring constraints of Asian Parents.

Our goal is for you to recalibrate, redefine, and live your life authentically, and in doing so, we, collectively, will be a voice against generational trauma.

Poised is defined as being marked by balance or equilibrium. It is also to have grace, courage, composure and to be dignified.
