I’ve just read this article: Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior and it got me thinking: what will I be? I mean, I’m Chinese, but I don’t share the very same value as the author. But on the other hand, she made a point. Maybe it’s true that ‘western’ model of parenting with heavy concern for child’s psychological state is too soft and it makes the children to not working hard enough. The question is, how enough is enough?
Anyway, it just makes me think for the n-hundredth time that parenting is hard. It’s like the art of doing something that can always go wrong anytime and it will affect a person for twenty years. I want kids someday, but I don’t think I’ll ever be ready.
Screw it for now. Still not-so-many-years to go!
