It is said that chinese mothers are better than the westerns mothers. That is because of the strictness of their mother the children had faced. The children were afraid of being scolded by their mum. Children of chinese mothers are not allowed to attend sleepovers, be in a school play and watch television. These are the things that are not allowed to do. Although children were scared of the strictness, they will tend to study harder so as to not disappoint their mothers. As for the reasons for the 'not allowed to do' list, its because of the discipline their mother wanted to train them.
I think that parents should be strict towards their children so as to not spoil them. Being strict isn't harmful, instead, its useful. Children are now so discipline because of their parents. Unlike those gangsters out there, they will only harm you.
