Will you accompany your kid to the school site of Gao Kao?

2016 national college entrance exams started this morning. Some of the parents accompanied their kids to the school site of Gao Kao. Some parents drived their kids to the destination. Some took taxi. Near the school gate, parents saw their kids going into the school and didn’t want to leave. Some parents were taking their kids’ breakfasts standing behind them and waited for checking in. Actually, those parents whose kids are taking part in the on-going exams have been busy with preparing something for their kids for a long period like cooking good food, booking a restaurant, learning the ways to the site of school for Gao Kao and so on. Indeed, Gao Kao tests not only kids but also their parents.

         Is it a good thing for parents to do so much for their kids? Why doesn’t a teenager at the age of 18 do it himself? Do kids really need such parents’ care? Will you accompany your kid to the school site of Gao Kao if you have?

I believe there is a saying that goes like "In the eyes of the parents the kid never grows up." It is just ridiculous how far the parents will go with this nowadays.

You see the problem that many kids in China always rely on their parents though they become adults.

If given the choice many kids will choose the easy way out. So it is up to the parents to put a stop to it and shove the kids out of the door.

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
