What are pressures on kids who were born in america to partents from other continents?

Often cruel. If the parents try to prevent junior from becoming americanized, they will make both themselves and their child miserable. There can be much good (particularly gratitude and a work ethic) and much bad (up to total rejection of a child who chooses american-style self-determination). A kid who is not allowed to americanize will be rejected and ridiculed by his us peers. Be warned.
