Q: China mainlanders NEVER WRONG. So whose mistake is it this time?

http://www.sixthtone.com/news/1000061/fathers-regret-over-sending-daught...

 

Bad call, 300,000 yuan ($43,500) down the American tube. Huge regrets.

 

To err is human comes from naive laowais. Chinese 5000+ years culture is best on planet Earth. Chinese mainlanders are never wrong. So whose fault is it this time, God's? LOL

That article glossed over the fact that her parents were controlling. Her parents demanded that she not have a foreign boyfriend, WTF?

They called her 3 times a day, think about that.

kid got some self-identity, likely made friends, good chance a Lover too, seen a developed country where one can live for themselves instead of being expected to be subservient to the Borg.  I don't blame her one bit.  I also wouldn't be a bit surprised if she sends $ to her parents.

Who is to blame? The parents for treating their daughter as a retirement plan. They didn't send her abroad for her own happiness or fulfillment. It was in order to get a better chance at a good retirement when she returned. They demanded she didn't have a local boyfriend (they said "foreign", but if she had an American boyfriend, he would not be the foreigner. She would... not that most Chinese can consider perspectives that don't have China as the center of the universe) to make sure she didn't become too attached to America. If they weren't so controlling, she might not be have been so desperate to leave.

 

The government shares blame as well. It's a shitty thing to do to use kids as retirement plans, but it's at least understandable, since there is no actual retirement plan. An adequate social security system to take care of the elderly would be too commie for the PRC. Also, if China got it's act together in terms of the abysmal education system, there wouldn't be a need to send kids abroad.

It's the conflict that will arrive more as the young modern people change and the older people are stuck in the past. Our countries went through it and changed for the better, so will China.

Here are some photos taken by a retired local during his self-drive tour of Poyang Lake, dating Oct. 17, 2016. Those birds in the photos are reared by the locals, most likely for tourists' benefits. https://www.mafengwo.cn/i/7787641.html Maps and photos from a local who did a one day tour of the area, in December 2016. http://www.mafengwo.cn/i/6487139.html?static_url=true -- earthizen
