Cayla Stubler, senior, has an American father and a Filipino mother, who “took the reins” when it came to parenting. “I guess you could say it was the stereotypical, Asian parent household, with a lot of respect towards elders, a great stress on respecting your manners, so pleases and thank you, things like that. [My mother] was forced to assimilate to American culture, but she always implemented Filipino culture of how she was raised in regards to maintaining identity,” Stubler said. “She always made sure that we were proud of being mixed and proud to have a mom that was from the Philippines. We would travel there every other year for Christmas to instill that this is where youre from. She was very stringent with grades, and I dont know if thats completely an Asian thing, but you see all those jokes about it; it was very math and science heavy. We wear house shoes. I guess if we misbehave, we would get a spank on the behind or the wrist with one of our bamboo brooms, and that was the majority of it.”

Elizabeth Tise, English teacher, grew up in a Romanian household, and notices there is a difference between American and immigrant parents. “Because American society is so diverse and we are made up of a modge podge of different cultures, the lines get really blurry between what is politically correct and what is not politically correct,” Tise said. “Romania is a very small country, its a very particular culture and its a very, very old culture. Weve been around since before the Roman Empire - before we were conquered by the Roman Empire, it was called Dachia; Romanian culture is older than Rome itself. Its been around forever, so because that culture is very much established and very deeply rooted, and its had a much longer time to develop, I think thats why its a little bit more stringent than American culture.”
