Articles : adb2014 commented on news East vs. West: When Parenting Styles Clash

Completely wrong on both counts, I'm afraid. In regards to the second point, I do agree that China has an interesting culture. However, there's nothing cultural about crapping on the street right in front of a public toilet; that's just dirty and lazy. I live in Guangzhou (one of the big three cities) and I see kids ...

Around China : adb2014 commented on news Cost of Living in Shanghai Now as High as Tokyo

One of China's main selling points has always been the low cost of living. However,it's increased so much in the major cities that I'd be no worse off in Australia. Healthcare and education for example,is cheaper back home and much better quality. Anyone who moves to China will do it for the cultural experience but ... Full Comment>>

Life as a parent can be difficult. It’s tiring, stressful, kills your social life and can be a big emotional and financial drain. However, these are mere irritations compared to the challenges of raising kids in a different culture, in a family with completely different methods to my own. As well as learning on the ...

Honestly, I don't think teaching English in China is a way to get your family financially ahead. I also have two kids and am on what's considered a pretty goos salary as a teacher. However, it mainly covers the bills and anything that's left over goes towards the kids. It's hard to get a part time job to top up my ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : adb2014 Posted a new blog Why Chinese Couples Now (In My Opinion) Prefer Daughters

For so long I was lead to believe that all expectant Chinese couples prefer boys. Maybe in many small-mid sized cities, that's still very much the case. Here in the first-tier city of Guangzhou however, I've noticed a change of attitude from many expectant parents in my work and social life. Along with the abolition ...

Well, almost all of these behaviours are done by men. China is very much a male-dominated society, so that's why behaviour like that can pass without too much fuss. Just my two cents worth. Full Comment>>

I also get frustrated when screaming, fighting kids are ignored by their parents because apparently they would lose face by disciplining them in front of others. That bothers me more than babies crying on trains because being a parent, I'm more tolerant of it now. As ling as someone is trying to calm him/her down, I ... Full Comment>>

Queuing is easy。 Or at least it should be. Logically, there’s nothing difficult about waiting in line with a group of other bored people to do what you need to do, get served and leave. But in Guangzhou, it’s never quite that simple. Queuing here can be messy, disorganised and at times, chaotic. ...
