Q: Why Chinese parent do not take care of their kids hygiene?

I often have students with incredibly long and black nails, kids with dirty clothes or terrible breaths, kids who even admit naively that they haven't had a shower for days...Most of those people come from wealthy families. I wonder how can a mother not notice her kid's horrible witch-like nails or smelly mouth or clothes?

  In all my years teaching i've only noticed once that a child was being neglected in this way, otherwise i've always found them pretty well turned out.

They are just not as educated about it, and/or don't want to use so much water.

My gf did not know how to floss.

I try to get her to shower everyday, but she likes to just wash her hair one day, then wash her feet the next, then shower the next day. I hate it, but this is the norm here.

mArtiAn:

  Maybe it's just your girlfriend.

In reply to Martian:

It is not just my gf, it is my Chinese co-workers and friends as well, and they all say that this is common. Maybe you haven't noticed in all your years of teaching because you don't keep up on your hygiene as well.

lokethebloke:

If you were educated you would know that too much washing destroys your natural defenses against disease, and it wastes water!   Perfumed cleansing agents cause so many skin and allergy problems.

As good Queen Elisabeth !st said "i have a bath once a month whether I need one or not"

There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China.
