I am the guardian of 2 Chinese children. I was shocked to learn that they expect to just exist in front so a computer in their room with everything done for them as they do as they liked. Uncle is not Chinese, uncle does not prescribe to the Chinese parenting style. The shock on their faces when I expected them to actively participate in family life. I have rules I expect obeyed ( within reason) or get punished. Chores have to be completed. I do this as well.
Cleaning toilets, showers washing dishes. Western manners at the table, you get the idea. I was shocked that these children have never been trained in manners, in how to eat and drink.
One child is easy to look after, one is difficult, each require a different style of parenting. Since been given responsibility backed up with punishment they have began to bloom as young adults. The future is very bright for them.
I have combined western and Chinese parenting styles, they both know I am aviable  24 hours a day to workshop problems. Having them here is a real learning experience, and an insite into the Chinese teenage culture.
I will write more if asked.

Please tell us more. Before did they live at school? In the south of China many students live at school 5 days a week.

Stay 1000 Kilometer away from my children you freaky low lilfe western  pedophile. Don't ever come to close to my children or I will shoot you in the head.



Why do so many just take things to name calling. Western culture has many great things so does Asian culture. Look past the hate and both sides can learn.

You will find the children are becoming interdependent, not relying on adults to make decisions for them, creating pride in a job well done.
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

These children are very intelligent and creative, they are not fitting into the Chinese education system, so because of this they attend university 3 days a week and secondary school 2 days a week. They love being in Australia and are very popular with many friends. They have responsibility within the family unit to fulfill, this gives them pride at home as well.
