A tiger mother is a slang term that describes a strict but loving mother who demands the best from her child. It is commonly used to refer to an Asian mother but is not limited to Asians.
The term comes from the intense protection that female tigers give their cubs. Human moms can show this same intensity when they are overbearing and squander their kids. They are commonly too involved in their kids' lives and demand too much in regards to obedience, academics, and other areas of life. They usually mean well but need to learn to dial back the intensity..
