I truly love this article providing an insight of Jeremy Lin’s family life. It reminds me a lot about my life growing up in San Francisco as a Christian Chinese American.
A few key points. Jeremy Lin’s mom was a very proactive. When she did not find high level basketball leagues, she created one.
Also. Lin’s mom Shirley continued to help her son develop his basketball skills despite getting criticized by other moms. Who has the last laugh now?
Lin’s father is more reserved and silent yet his involvement is too proactive by recording Lin’s basketball games.
Lin’s success perhaps brings to the forefront the issues of parenting. Perhaps providing though love through discipline in school as well as allowing a child to grow and play is a great balance.
Shirley perhaps can be nicknamed “Panda mom” and not “Tiger Mom”. She is prized, strong, yet loveable at the same time.
Reading this article provides me with a more in depth explanation of Jeremy Lin’s humbleness molded by his parents.
While most NBA players would boast to the world about being signed by an NBA team, Lin modestly engages the car salesman at the end of the article.
