Asian parents are strict with their children. They won't let them date. They make them study hard in school. They keep them away from bad friends, drugs and alcohol. They watch over them, guiding them, insisting on obedience, hard work and excellence. As parents they are determined that their children will do well in life. And they view education and high performance in school as the path to success. In all this they show far more love for their children than do American parents who allow their children all kinds of freedom, (letting them do anything they wish), giving them big allowances, showering them with all kinds of expensive presents on their birthdays and at Christmas time. This is just another instance where the pagan and non-Christian shows himself far closer to the teachings, values and spirit of the Bible than does the Christian. It is just another case where the Buddhist, Hindu, Confucian and Moslem show far more true love, far more concern and kindness, far more justice and fairness, far more wisdom and sense, far more goodness, than does the Christian. In fact, I suspect that nowhere in the world are children so neglected, nowhere is so little real love shown to children, as in the USA. In Russia, in many countries, children are put on a pedestal and much attention is given to them. In the USA they just grow up and run wild. Feb 1987 More from SolitaryRoad.com:
