My parents were hard working conservative middle-class.  I was raised with the principle that if you want something, you work for it and you earn it.  No free rides.  I paid for my own college and living expenses by working during the summers and working part-time during the school year.  There were times that my parents helped out... a car repair or something of the sort, but it was a loan, not a gift.  I can appreciate that because you learn the value of a strong work ethic and the satisfaction of earning your way through life.

To put it in perspective for me... 1212 RMB/month is about $175 USD/month.  When I was in college (1970's), that wouldn't cut it.  I had to pay my share of rent, utilities, groceries, and fuel and insurance for my car... that didn't include entertainment.  I had to work part-time during college to meet those expenses... I earned about $500 US/month busing tables and washing dishes at a restaurant... not much left over for entertainment.
