19. I think that you made such an interesting point
But parental expectation is huge.

My mother was the child of immigrants- she had been awarded a full scholarship to college, but had to turn it down so that she could work a job to put her brothers through college.

All of us worked our way through college out of sheer determination to get what was denied to our mother.

The importance that a family places in education plays a very big role on what the children think that they can and should achieve.
