Mr Wang works in a state-owned bank. His daughter was enrolled by a university in Xiamen. According to Mr Wang’s estimation, over 40 thousand yuan is needed to start his daughter’s first year in campus. It will include: new clothes(3,500 yuan), an iphone5 and a laptop(14,000 yuan), a new travel suitcase(1,380 yuan), makeups(2,000 yuan), daily necessities(1,500 yuan), passenger tickets(8,000 yuan), living expenses for the first semester(5,000 yuan) and tuition fee (8,000 yuan).
Zhang He, a professor from Shenyang Normal University said that it is the parents’s responsibility to set up a good example about spending money for their children. “ Sometimes parents have to say no to their children’s unreasonable demands. If a child keeps asking for something, be patient, try to find out the motive and then come up with a better solution together with the child.”
