Reflections of a Chinese mother in the West
Hey fatty, lose some weight
tiptoe around the issue
never mention the f-word
Chinese parents believe their kids owe them everything
Westerners don't think the offspring must show permanent gratitude to the parents.
Chinese parents consider they know what's best for their children and therefore have ultimate authority over their children's desires and preferences.
The Chinese parenting method is more practical and effective because it can better prepare their children for the future.
