From the Paper:

"As a mother and working woman, Eileen does not currently appear to have specifically high goals or ambitions. Basically she has obtained most of her youthful ambitions: a college degree, a job that pays well, material comforts such as a car and a house, and a family life with her husband and children. At the moment her focus is very much on her family and home life, and I get the feeling that her professional ambitions suffer a bit as a result. When her children grow up, however, she should be able to cultivate a more ambitious professional life. Right now the greatest of her ambitions seem to be on providing her children with all the material comforts and educational opportunities that money makes possible. Eileen herself substantiates this with her assertion that she is a typical mother with high expectations of her children. This is reminiscent of her original culture - the elders expect children to do their bidding and meet their expectations. Furthermore, Eileen does not feel that stress is a bad thing for children. In fact, this element helps them to always finish things on time. In this way, she applies her own lessons of childhood to raising her own children. She has achieved the level of professionalism and family in her life, because there were certain pressures upon her. Eileen therefore feels that a fair amount of such pressure on her own children would inspire them and help them to become self-disciplined, as she had been."
