LIVING WITH TWO DIFFERENT CULTURES
linda chang is a vietnamese girl,but now she lives with her family in seattle,in the united states.
linda's parents are very strict about her social life.she is not allowed to go out with guys.it is not that her parents don't trust her,she says.they just don't trust the world.
linda's average day starts early.she drops her sistes off at school at 7:45 and then drives two friends to seattle central,where she takes chemistry and policial science courses.when her school day finishes at noon,she goes back home.
linda says it's not the vietnamese way to talk much about family isssues.dinner table conversation is about food,not interpersonal relationships.
she respects her family a lot.her friends think it's weird that if she wants to go out,she needs to ask her grandpa and aunts and uncles and parents for approval, adding that they seldom give it.though she complais about these restrictions,she is aware of her position in the family:a model for her cousins and sisters.
