Comment on "Parents can now play a healthier role" (China Daily, Aug 27)

As an education advisor, I have contributed several times to China Daily on this and related issues. I agree with and support the report entitled "Parents can now play a healthier role".

Chinese parents' views on children are not only outdated, but also damaging to children's long-term education. Education experts I have spoken with agree that children are not empty bottles to be filled with knowledge 14 hours a day. Chinese parents need to realize this.
