Even If You Are Gay

A gay friend said he thought he wouldn’t be bothered now that he came out, but his mom still lectured him during the Chinese New Year for being single: “All men like those who are younger. If you don’t hurry, you won’t be able to snag any men.”

一个gay朋友说,本以为出了柜就没事了,结果单身的他过年依然被妈妈教育:“是男人都喜欢年轻的,你再不抓紧,男人都找不到了。” ​​​​

Entertainer Dream

My mom suddenly asked me, “I’m going to send you off to be an entertainer. How do you like it?”
I: I’m not good looking and I don’t know how to sing or dance. Why do you want me to be an entertainer?
My mom: So you’d better concentrate on your studies!

Thank Goodness I Learned That Now

My daughter was sulking.

I: Hey you, you’ve got to learn to manage your emotions. Putting on a face of “who is coming to coax and humor me” is only going to make you annoying to others. But you are lucky for learning that postulate from me now. I figured that out myself after a long time. Many people don’t have emotional management skills all their lives.

Daughter: Thank Goodness I learned that now…

Little Square Dancer Wallace

【3-year-old cutie pie excels in square dancing. He learned all the dances by heart through observance [笑cry]】The three-year-old baby Li Zerui is good at Chinese square dancing. His mom revealed he learned how to do the square dancing by watching only. When the little boy was one and a half years old, his mom took him to the park. Sitting in the stroller, he watched the square dancers dancing for half an hour. Finally, one day, the boy decided to join the dance, and he nailed practically all the dance moves. His mom was stunned. Now he is able to dance to over forty songs. (Click here to watch the video.)

Agnes Meiling Kaneko Chan’s Advice

【10 Things Parents Should Never Do!】Agnes Meiling Kaneko Chan started her singing career at 14 and once enjoyed equal popularity with Teresa Teng Li-Chun aka Deng Lijun. Later she got married in Japan and has three sons, all of whom enrolled in the No.1 university in the U.S., Stanford University, under her guidance. What’s the secret of her parenting success? Agnes Chan shared it with us in the video.

Ten Things Parents Should Not Do

1. Do not compare your kids with other kids. Too much comparison may hurt their self confidence, which will make them too afraid to show you their potential. Some kids of low self confidence may choose to bully or look down on others.

2. Don’t reward your children with material things. They may discard the toys you rewarded them after two or three weeks. Toys are not their friends forever. A mom asked me what to do when her daughter didn’t like taking showers. I said, “You can tell your daughter, ‘If you take a shower and clean yourself, you can help me put on some makeup.'” If it were a boy, tell him if he takes a shower, he will be allowed to help his dad put on some makeup. He will definitely love that! Reward your kids with fun events that’ll enhance the communication among family members.

3. Do not make daily schedules for the children. Many parents expect their children to play after finishing the homework. No, doing homework is playing; playing is learning. I don’t let my children separate learning and playing that clarly. When it rained, I took my kids to the park. I let them float the leaves on the water and see whose leaf swam faster. Then I asked them, “Why does it rain?” I nurture their interest in looking for answers. When they can see and experience problems in a tangible way, they will learn very fast and they won’t feel that learning is toiling.

4.  Don’t let your kids enroll in tutoring programs. The tutoring programs that aim to raise your kids’ grades give them the impression that the purpose of learning is to get good grades. If you spend the money on tutoring programs on family trips instead, the outcome will be better. My oldest son loves fishes. We went to almost all the aquariums we could go to in Japan.

5. Don’t make choices for your children. It is very important to learn how to make choices. Since my kids were small, I have trained them to make choices, such as picking ice creams. When my oldest son was in high school, he chose to apply to universities in the U.S. I expected him to pick the No.1 or the No.2 university, but he chose the No.7 school. Every new student in that school was assigned a horse. Every day hey had to take care of the horse before going to class. That trained them to be responsible. My son enjoyed studying there and did well. The school taught him well. He made the right choice.

6. Don’t prevent your kids from falling in love in high school. Dating teaches us how to love and how to be loved, so I encouraged my sons to have girlfriends, but I also taught them to be responsible—they must not become fathers. They all had girlfriends when they were in high school. I could see they were very happy. I gave them sex education very early—when they were 9 years old.

7.  Don’t scold or hit your kids. I am against scolding and physical punishment. Physical punishment gives you fast results—the kids will give in quickly—but do they really understand the problems? It is better to have a conversation and discuss the problems thoroughly. My longest record was 8 hours. My kids later joked that physical punishment was better because they could leave earlier.

8. Don’t lie to your kids. For example, keep you promise to your kids. If you don’t, your kids will think you lied to them. If kids don’t trust others, they will be very lonely all their lives.

9. Don’t ignore your children because of work. Even two to five minutes of interaction with your little children will be like heaven to them.

10. When your kids ask you questions, never tell them to “wait a second.” Even when I was cooking, I turned off the gas when my kid asked me, “Why is the sky blue?” I told him, “That’s a great question!!! Let’s look for the answer together in a second.”

For me, education is giving the kids some tools for finding dreams. If they fail, they can move on to find other dreams. If they succeed, they need to be modest and learn to share.
