Research has illustrated how the immigrant family and ethnic community have been the primary sources of support as well as the primary sites of conflict (Zhou and Bankston, 1998). Asian American children, despite their diverse origins, share certain common family experiences—most prominently the unduly familial obligation to obey their elders and repay parental sacrifices, along with the extraordinarily high parental expectations for educational and occupational achievement. Many Asian immigrant parents (especially those who had already secured middle-class status in their home countries) migrated to provide better opportunities for their children.

Among cities with populations that exceed 100,000, New York City, Los Angeles, and Honolulu have the largest number of Asians, while Daly City, California, and Honolulu are Asian-majority cities. Some smaller cities in California such as Monterey Park (the first city in America that reached an Asian majority in 1990 and remained an Asianmajority city in 2000) have also reached Asian-majority status. Traditional urban enclaves such as Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Manilatown, Koreatown, Little Phnom Penh, and Thaitown continue to thrive or have recently emerged in gateway cities.

Asian American youth are less likely to talk back or blatantly defy their parents than other American youth. For example, in her study of Nisei daughters during the years of Asian exclusion, Valerie Matsumoto (this volume) depicts the tension between native-born daughters and their immigrant parents in the way they defined womanhood. ” Although this delicate balancing act may take a heavy emotional toll on Asian American youth, it is precisely their ambivalence toward their immigrant families that makes the youth culturally sensitive, which, in turn, expands their repertoire for cultural expression.
