The Chinese Family In Transition

Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
Historically, the traditional extended family has been China's built-in social security system. Today, under the pressures of family size limits, rapid urbanization, and Western cultural influences, China's social stability is being stressed to the breaking point. This program captures a transitional phase of Chinese history in which many parents are struggling to instill Confucian values and their own received wisdom about life into their children-teens and young adults who must weigh filial obedience, social obligations, and acceptance of established gender roles against a yearning for personal space and independence.
