Chinese parents have frequently tended to pay too much attention to their children‘s study， so that children don’t help them do the housework. Their only requirement for their children is to study hard， perform well in the exams， and go to a famous/prestigious university. They believe it is good for their children， because in such a highly competitive society， only good results could ensure a promising future. Chinese parents also believe that parents will be honored if their children can achieve great success in society. Therefore， they are willing to sacrifice their own time， hobbies and interests， to create much better conditions for children.
