Imagine how much trouble you would be in if you were having sex with the wife on a Thursday evening in Beijing in a position other than missionary and you spiced it up with a little slap and tickle with a 2 1/2 inch strap and while this was all happening you accidentally farted.

You can do the same for other countries too, just change country name.

A:If you are active in your kid's life (teaching him values and helping him think for himself) and there isn't a better alternative then I can see doing Chinese school for the first couple of years.  They will learn to be responsible by taking studying seriously (setting them up to do well academically in a western environment) and will have mastered Chinese at an early age which will be of great benefit down the line.  You just have to find a way to get them out before middle school as it is this age where they start questioning the parents and they lose the influence.  -- pbrown22
