Description

Critics have swooned over the movie’s hot dog fingers, the butt plug fight scenes, the trippy zigzags through possible worlds, but stripped of its zaniness, the indie sleeper dominating the Oscars is essentially the story of an aging Asian American mom confronting her very real flaws to reach her daughter. A Memoir in Nine Adventures , Jane Wong’s Meet Me Tonight in Atlantic City, and Delia Cai’s Central Places ; in film, there are rumblings of sequels to The Joy Luck Club and Crazy Rich Asians.

However, we still face many difficulties in our industry because of our commitment to accessible and informational Asian news coverage.

When I was pregnant with my first child, I received all the standard prenatal care: frequent OB visits, lab tests, and ultrasounds. Although our different cultures have rarely been much of an issue between us, it has been very interesting seeing the cultural differences, particularly with his parents, when we had children. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and a look at PPD from your cultural perspective, I learned a wealth of information and gained an understanding I didn't have before. In the hours by myself I would plan elaborate ways in which I could run away and never be found again.

In my neighborhood alone, the Chinese takeaway I walked past on the way to my daughter’s school was vandalized. My mom would be much more open to me taking an herbal brew with who-knows-what in it than to take a pill for depression. Decades of being mistaken for other Asians, of being asked where I’m from, of rarely seeing Asian authors on best-seller lists had taken its toll; I stopped looking to books to make sense of my Asianness. According to traditional Chinese medicine, our bodies have a “hot” and “cold” nature, which must be balanced for good health.Thankfully, my husband, who is also Asian-American, was very supportive and always offered me patience and a listening ear. When Billy's first dating attempt with a Japanese girl goes terribly awry he feels his chances for romance are lost forever. The brilliance of The School for Good Mothers is in identifying these anxieties, and then ratcheting them up to reveal their absurdity.

As the growing pressure to be beautiful gets even heavier in Asia, is it right to pin these expectations onto mothers as well?Race plays a significant role; Frida is the “most palatable kind of Asian” but as scrutiny over her intensifies, judgment breaks down racial lines: “She didn’t sound attentive enough, patient enough, Chinese enough, American enough. For Asian women, did you participate in the one-month sitting period, and if so, how did that affect your postpartum recovery (both positively and negatively)?

As a second-generation immigrant teen immersed in white culture, I was baffled by my Asian family—my grandmother’s harrowing war stories, my mother’s laser focus on achievement. At least in the Chinese culture, there is such a large emphasis on physical recovery that a new mother may not feel comfortable admitting to mental or emotional struggles.I was grateful that I didn’t have to be alone with the baby, that I didn’t have to cook for myself, that she was always willing to rock the baby to sleep when I was too tired to do so anymore.
