EXCERPT:

 A Grand Education

From a young age, children are often taught by their grandparents due to an increasing need for both parents to work and send money to the family. In some cases, the demand for work takes the parents to different cities. 

A Family is a Home

The Chinese character for ‘family’ originally represents a farm, meaning an enterprise. It is considered as a unit that bonds its members with a set of values and responsibilities and is often regarded as the first entity Chinese people belong to.

Child Policy

While China is facing an aging population due to the one child policy, the government is slowly making the law more flexible, especially in big cities.
For instance a couple composed of at least 1 single child will now be able to have 2 babies.

Interesting Fact

A recent law passed in July 2013 allows neglected parents to seek legal recourse against their children in the form of regular visits and financial support.
