Based in Darling and Steinberg's Integrative Parenting Theory (1993), which examines parenting goals and values, instead of Baumrind's parenting typology (1971), which cannot fully capture the cultural aspects of parenting, this proposal aims to employ mixed methods methodology to join in the movement of pushing back the "tiger parenting" stereotype of Asian parenting. To achieve this, the study plans to employ a battery of self-report parenting questionnaires, as well as engaging participants in semi-structured interviews to examine how the parenting goals, intentions, and practices of Asian parents are more "authoritative" than "authoritarian". With its mixed method design, findings from this research can provide valuable insights on Asian parenting that are contextualized.
