Chinese people have to get married because for them, family is an extension of society and not of an individual. Chinese people need to create a family in order to be socially accepted. For Chinese individuals, family is only a way of social survival. Since the Chinese culture has a strong sense of humility and human respect, hence people in a family treat each other with respect and dignity while not letting the other person feel any less. These are the Chinese social practices that I have been brought up with and which I have observed and followed within my own family. Chinese culture believes in collectivism rather than individualism, and hence every member of the family is supposed to take care of other members. I have always seen my mom and dad not only caring for me but also for relatives like my aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
There is no perfect parent and perfect parenting. But, there is good parent and good parenting. Parenting is the process during which parents support their children physically, emotionally, financially and socially, right from infancy to adulthood. It is one of the biggest challenges, especially when parents make efforts to be the best parents intending to bring the best out of their children. Parents use many approaches while parenting. Some make the children bold and confident; while, some tend to make their personalities weaker. Those people make good parents who allow their children to reason. Authoritative parents argue with their child but leave room for objections. They listen to their child’s ideas and reason with them due to which the child also learns how to reason and present logic. This sharing of ideas leads to good communication between the parents and the child, which is very beneficial for the child in the long run. The child talks to the parents about his problems and discusses issues problematic to him. The parents listen to him, and share their own opinions with him logically.
