Hieu Thao

Vy-Thao Nguyen writes, “Hieu Thao is a word that is ingrained in every Vietnamese. It means showing loyal reverence to one’s parents.” The more I think about these two words, the more migraine I get. No matter how hard I try, I am never as “hieu thao” to my mother as my cousins or the children of my mom’s friends to their mothers. The responsibility of being a Vietnamese child is not easy. Check out Vy-Thao Nguyen’s essay on “Hieu Thao – The Filial Piety of Today’s Generation.”
