Chinese wolf dad beats 3 kids into Beijing University

Postby Nebbermind » Mon Nov 21, 2011 2:59 pm

At the beginning of this year, the book “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” by Amy Chua has caused fierce discussion on traditional Chinese education methods. Recently another book “Therefore, Beijing University siblings (所以,北大兄妹) has brought a so-called wolf dad into the spotlight because he too, adopts extremely strict parenting methods and raises 4 well-behaving kids, 3 of whom get into Beijing University, one of the best universities in China. His parenting motto is “beating every 3 days gets your children into BJU”.....

Maybe he just pay fine....I asked a lady from China, she told me in such cases, the family will be fined for each extra child. City folks 1 child and farmers 2 children IF first is a girl.

The amt of fine is determine by the family's income.

Wah, 4 kids, cane every 3 days per kid, means 4 times per 3 days, means every day must cane someone. So tiring. I salute this kind of parent. Tenacity and very good at keeping track who has not been caned that day. Let's hope the kids will not turn around and cane them in future when they are old and make mistakes.

Maybe he just cane all on the same day. In the WB Chinese newspaper, all the kids wear long sleeves, either the weather was cold on the day the photo was taken or the marks of caning are still visible.

I think if parenthood is such a torture, I'd rather not have kids, let alone 4?! Why is caning so important, and so happy for him? Psychological problem or something? Whenever I have to cane (like once in a blue, blue moon), it aches like mad.

Who knows what kind of pressure he was under, having 4 kids in a one child policy country. I guess he needed to prove that the parents' genes justified the qty?

Maybe he badly wanted a son?

:lol:

Whatever good intentions he has for caning his kids, maybe at the back of his mind, he might be afraid of getting the same treatment when he's old. So he wrote the book, the market in China is big enough to make him a rich man if the book proves to be popular. With money in his pocket, he does not need to depend on his kids liao heehee
