Asian parents on interracial dating
Lost Girl A: Start thinking about what “to expect” from yourself and from your boyfriend.
Your parents are unlikely to change, especially since they resort to harsh threats.
My dad can come home angry and stressed from work but will never yell, shout, or do anything my mom does.
Am I just being stupid and not realizing the circumstances that she's in or is she just some sort of angry ball that I shouldn't provoke?
We also take care of my little step sister who is only a toddler.
I get that all these little things add up and that she may very well have a reason to be angry/irritated sometimes but I think that the way she gets angry is completely uncalled for.
How do I deal with father trying to slowly deconstruct our house?
And I'm not making this post with the intent of just saying that I have a shitty step mother, because there are moments where I can see that she does care about me and my future, but the way she gets angry at the smallest things sometimes gets me so frustrated.
I moved to Canada in 2004, and my parents, being Asian, were very strict about my not dating and, when it came to getting married, only marrying an Asian man.
They caught me dating an African-American man and were extremely angry, threatening to cut me off and accusing me of not caring about my family and relatives, and saying they hope I die.
I've seen her get mad to the point where she loses it and shoves and kicks my dad, screams at the top of her lungs like an angry baby, threaten to have me sent out to my biological mother or have me kicked out of the house (which I don't really mind if it ever does happen, but the way she says it is really disheartening), throw objects, break glass, threaten to kill the entire family, and attempt to beat me.
My dad even stepped in once while she was screaming at me while throwing my phone around after she caught me caling my friend and told her that whatever she was doing was enough and to stop.
