BRIDGE LESSON Kids these days, particularly in China are super stressed. Not only do they have school most of the day, and homework that's not finished until late into the evening, but they also have lots of extracurricular classes that they must attend to stay ahead of the class. If you want to give you child the best start in life and not hold back their academic achievements, it seems that constant schooling is a must nowadays. Listen to two adults discuss this trend, and how it was much easier back in the old days when you didn't need to force these academic pursuits. Photo by Claire mono
