    That tool scene in the garage is my childhood in a nutshell. I used to just start panicking and crying in seconds....the thing I'd been sent for was never there. Or if it was , I knew it by a different name.
    Emotional Damage ensued....and it's with me to this day.

      My dad would send me for a tool then put his hands on his hips and whistle and look at the sky as I would score around growing increasingly frustrated and distraught looking for the tool. I think my dad knew Steve He Sr.

    as someone with an asian mom, i can say that i did get emotional damage
    to this day, she still tells me to do something in such a vague way, then gets angry at me when i ask about it- she always goes "be more flexible!" or "use your brain!"

    • Helena Volckaert

      I can empathise. My mom is so vague 90% of the time and then gets annoyed with me when I ask for clarification, which just feels bad (every single object or action is a "thing" she refuses to elaborate on unless heavily, repeatedly asked 😑).

      Yo, stepmom, the baby's a bit sick. Snotty and heaving a bit, but should be fine, the doctor had a look at says it's just a cold.
      -Do the therapy!
      The what?
      -Do the therapy for baby fever!
      What therapy precisely?
      -The therapy of course! Come on, are you dim! That baby is suffering! Get to it!

    I was my dad's choir boy growing up. He fancied himself a fixer, imagining that he could fix anything around the house without hiring a specialist because he had grown up working in for mechanics and electricians and plumbers and the like. The light thing always happened only the verbal chastising was much more venom laced. Meant to cut deep, true emotional damage that might require therapy but in truth, it becomes something you have to bury deep inside yourself to only examine when you feel safe if you ever try to examine it anyway.
    I ended up being like him a little, even though I hated him, I also fancied myself a handy person aroung the house who could fix most things, only I grew up with the internet so instead of calling up past experiences I learned things from TheXvid and applied that to my jobs coming out with much better results than my dad. Moreover I learned to be self sufficient so instead of someone holding a light for me I got myself a light helmet, instead of someone holding the wood for me to cut I bought clamps to hold it in place. I don't need someone to constantly order around and yell at to get the job done.

    Hold The Light was definitely a bonding experience I'll never forget. Bonus points if dad drops a bolt into the undercarriage, but blames it on you. You just want it all to end, then it happens. "Just go away, you're no help." You have to spend the next week reaffirming yourself that you were definitely doing everything he told you to do, trying not to be gas-lit. Steven, why do you have to dig up these old wounds?

    Omg, this is so relatable. My dad would ask me for a bucket, so I brought him one. Then he said, 'no no no.. the one to scoop the water'. So I brought him a water scooper. And then he went, 'No, why you so stupid?! That thing that sweeps the water!'.... he was looking for the squeegee floor wiper. *mind blown* 💀

      @BenchART lol, OK son, here's a tip for you. I'm equally lost with parents but in terms of female matters, this is the exact translation.
      1) when she gives you vague indications of what she wants, it probably means she's not sure what she really wants yet. BUT, she has an idea of what she wants.
      2) when you bring her the thing you think she wants. She is now sure that is not what she wants. This is now your cue to ask her what she really wants 😂.
      All the best, my fellow emotionally damaged friend.

      Shit, I'm Portuguese and even today my GF gives me vague indications of what she wants, and then I take her something and she says that it's not that what she wants :D
      Even my parents used to do stuff like that to me all the time.
      Now all of this makes sense why I lose my patiente quickly when this type of situations happen to me.
      All this people have been applying a very effective EMOTIONAL DAMAGE against me.

      @Mokster Destroying a child's self esteem, making them lose a needed sense of security that they need from their parents and creating lifelong trauma is child abuse, not love. A lot of the comments left by people here is classic abuse and it was completely unnecessary for any of their parents to do this to their children.

    I remember working with my father in law and we were inflating a tire, he told me to tell him when it was at 40 PSI so I told him when it got there, and he told me to keep going until 45, then 50 and I was like Uhhh...should we stop it? and he said keep going, and then I just backed away right before it popped the compressor hose off, I then got yelled at for not stopping it at 40 PSI.

    I once had a very important test when I was a young teenager. I lived with my japanese grandfather. I had a really strong stomach ache and had to go to the bathroom, in part out of nervousness I think. He called me and I told you I was in the bathroom, but he didn't hear me. He got frustrated, and just left in his car. I had to run all the way to the school, was let in late probably out of pity, made the test in tears and was chewed out over not yelling where I was loud enough when I got home.
    I got the top grade on my year for that test (it was a multiple choice simulation similar to college admission exams).
    It was, of course, "nothing more than my obligation".

    • oriricha
      oriricha 17 days ago +1

      @João Alexandre it makes sense. For some time I’ve thought that having a bit too much pressure from your caretakers (or parents) would be better than having none. Being raised by people who don’t care what you do with your life either way is not necessarily more relaxing because you grow up without the tools required to “fight your way up” so to speak. Then everything becomes a bigger chore than it actually is and people linger in mediocrity like there is nowhere out. Anyways, thanks for answering. The trick is in the balance, as usual.

    • João Alexandre
      João Alexandre 17 days ago +2

      @oriricha lol I actually got into a pretty good med school and tried to finish it until I had a bad mental breakdown and dropped out. Nowadays after some years of therapy and medication I'm mostly fine, working some freelance jobs and halfway through a history graduation (thankfully in my country the best universities are the public ones, which are free). But this pressure definetly fucked up a good portion of my life - and some members of my family kind of never forgave me for making it into a medicine grad school and having the audacity of not wanting to be a doctor. It's hard to say how much of it was the overall mentality of toxic demands for academic excellence and how much of it was people trying to make me become a doctor regardless of my wishes because both of those things are very closely linked together. But overall from what I've seen from other Asian descended kids I know, I'd say that this way of raising kids makes most of them become either full of neurosis that they have to hide, severely depressed, or both. The few kids who turn out both happy and successful are so in spite of their home lives, not because of it. There's a *lot* of mutual complaining whenever we meet about how all this pressure gave us great math scores but we never learned how to do a lot of practical stuff or just deal with conflict or disagreements because we were supposed to be obedient and accepting, both from other kids I grew up with or with children of other Asian parents with this sort of mindset I ended up meeting afterwards.

      @Little 7s na not all asians. also other people who aren't asian can do it to its just easier when you learn chinese and have the accent. cause i have a american friend who can do it. decently well yet a korean one sucks at doing "emotional damage" which in it self IS emotional damage.

    Another good way to cause emotional damage is to tell your kid to do one task, then right after they start yell at them to do another task even though they aren't done, then when they start on the new task yell at them for not finishing the other task. This should cause emotional damage that will affect their ability to multi-task for the rest of their life. For extra affect, add more than three tasks at once

    "You must contradict yourself"- yes, yes. Asian parents do that. I work in the same company as my father, some days feel like a nightmare.
    People who don't belong to a stereotypical Asian family might say, "why don't you just leave then?"
    Ah, yes. Clearly, you don't know the guilt and responsibility that comes with the Asian Eldest Child Syndrome. You carry the weight of responsibility with you until the day you die. Like Spiderman. But instead of an entire city, you have naggy parents and the ghosts of your ancestors to judge you.

    This is what my Filipino mom does to my dad, even though she barely drives and my dad's been for 40 years. If he doesn't brake before the car in front of him starts even slowing down, he gets yelled at 🤣 emotional damage that lasts the entire car ride. Very effective

      I remember the worst spanking I ever got as a child. Will never forget it. I was about 10 years old. I told my mother I was going down the street, about 4 houses down, to play with a friend. She said OK. My friend's adult sister had just purchased an RV and parked it in front of their house, so I, my older sister, and other kids from the block went into the parked RV to check it out. I guess my mom called out for me (this is MANY years ago, WAAY before cell phones), and she didn't see me at first. When she did find me, she was furious, grabbed me by the arm in front of my friends, and spanked me the whole way home, propelling me down the sidewalk, spank, step, spank, step, spank, step, screaming at me all the way. No one else got in trouble for being inside the (perfectly safe, parked) RV, not even my sister, just me. I was mortified knowing my friends watched my mom spank me all the way down the block, and silently outraged at the injustice of it because I was where I said I would be, in front of my friend's house. The unfairness added extra flavor to the emotional damage!!
      (Steven, please use a version of this in one of your videos! Maybe the catharsis I will get from seeing it will help heal the emotional damage. Not joking.)
