Here We Aren’t, So Quickly | The New Yorker
I was always destroying my passport in the wash. You were always awful at estimating. You were never willing to think of my habits as charming. I was just insisting that it was already too late to master an instrument or anything. You were never one to mention physical pain.

I couldn’t explain the cycles of the moon without pen and paper, or with. You didn’t know where e-mails were. I wouldn’t congratulate a woman until she explicitly said she was pregnant. You spent a few minutes every day secretly regretting your laziness that didn’t exist. I should have forgiven you for all that wasn’t your fault.

Your Real Biological Clock Is You’re Going to Die – Hmm Daily
Did we choose the age at which we would have children? What does it mean to choose? We use the language of autonomy to avoid thinking about powers that shape our existence. Our civilization is remarkably hostile to the needs of life, from the helplessness of babyhood to the frailty of old age. The system is set up for healthy, productive, independent individuals, and one absorbs the lesson that one should try to stay in this class as long and as securely as one can.

The truth about the Tiger Mother's family
Still, for those wishing to be rich and academically successful, the book defines three essential traits that contribute to drive, all passed down at least partly through the family. The first is a superiority complex, the sense that your particular group is exceptional. This belief, "can be religious", they write, "as in the case of Mormons. It can be rooted in a story about the magnificence of your people's history and civilisation, as in the case of Chinese or Persians." They're aware how dangerous this quality can be – ambivalence surrounds all the triple-package qualities. "Group superiority is the stuff of racism, colonialism, imperialism, Nazism," they continue. "Yet every one of America's extremely successful groups fosters a belief in its own superiority."

The second essential quality – insecurity – might seem contradictory, but apparently provides the grit in the oyster. "Everyone is probably insecure in one way or another," they write, "but some groups are more prone to it than others. To be an immigrant is almost by definition to be insecure." They note that the idea of insecurity as a lever of success is anathema in western society, and that, "the greatest anathema of all would be parents working to instil insecurity in their children. Yet insecurity runs deep in every one of America's most successful groups, and these groups not only suffer from insecurity; they tend, consciously or unconsciously, to promote it."
Finally, the third quality is impulse control, which they define as the ability to resist temptation. "Against the background of a relatively permissive America," they write, "some groups decidedly place greater emphasis on impulse control than others." They write that, while there is now a tendency to romanticise childhood, to see it as a time, ideally, of unfettered happiness, "every one of America's most successful groups takes a very different view of childhood and of impulse control in general, inculcating habits of discipline from an early age – at least they did so when they were on the rise."  personal  parenthood
