TEDx Great Wall - Yanhong Wheeler Parenting and the Struggles in Breaking Tradi.mp4

Yanhong Wheeler, a famous parenting specialist, author, lecturer, and social commentator will put forward some provocative thoughts on the struggles many Chinese parents face as they try to break with tradition and explore alternative parenting methods. In China, as in many parts of the world, there are intense ongoing debates about the best way to raise children to cope with the demands of living in an increasingly interconnected world. Tensions are sharpening between authoritarian, "mainstream," Asian parenting traditions that push children to excel academically and liberal, "alternative," Western approaches that focus on the balanced development of the whole child. The importance of this discussion extends far beyond the pedagogical realm, it reaches right through society as the way that children are raised can have a dramatic impact on how they live their lives, engage with society and interact with others in work, play and life. As China continues its unstoppable rise, many people wonder how children raised in China today will help shape the world of tomorrow.About TEDxTalks:In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
