Most parents desire their children grow up in best society environment and they should become successful in society. That really is the parents concern but sometimes that interfere in their children privacy. Almost Asian parental do not give their children independent at all and the children could not decide the life themselves. How many time have you argue to your parents when they interfere to your privacy ? This rush to develop the relationship between the parents and their children in two difference cultures. In Hwangâ€™s point is any immigrant have struggle between two culture. It â€˜s not happen in Hwang family only. It almost happen in other immigrant who live in The United States.

In Hwang case , she said :a" my parent did not want their daughter to be Korean but they dona"""t want her fully American, either. The parents are leader of family but they are not always right. That time she felt at the bottom of the abyss, and she was isolated with her family because she resisted her parent requirement.
