Viral News China: In China, parents work hard to empower their children from an early age. Its latest example was found in southern China. A father said he was empowering his three-year-old son. In fact, his son had scratched the neighbor’s luxury cars. He therefore asked his son to apologize and pay 2,000 yuan or approximately Rs 22,500 as compensation.
According to the South China Morning Post, this move by Ouyang’s father, who lives in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, is hailed on social media. The incident happened when Ouyang’s son and another boy were playing in their neighborhood at night and collided with two luxury cars. During this time, both scratched the car with plastic guns. The boys were caught by the owner of the cars, who informed Ouyang of the loss.
“My son will learn from this”
Although Ouyang defended the boys as being too young to face negative consequences for their behavior, he acknowledged that he had made a mistake. Ouyang said his son had been stingy with money, so he came up with the idea to ask his son to apologize and then give the neighbor 2,000 yuan as compensation. He said: ‘I hope he can understand that he has to pay for his mistakes.’
Ouyang said his son will learn that making a mistake means taking responsibility, even if he doesn’t know the cost. The father’s decision to teach his son to take responsibility is welcomed on social networks. Many have said that instead of getting angry or physically punishing children, it is more effective to train them and help them learn.
