14-year old books a hotel room to do homework

Anyone even just remotely interested in China will be aware of how obsessed they are with education over here. It is the utmost priority for young people(and their parents) or at least it should be. That’s all fine if not for the fact that quite often this desire to succeed academically comes at a high price (and I don’t necessarily mean financially).

I don’t ever want my child to be so afraid of me and/or so paranoid about doing homework that it reaches this stage…

Homework done at hotel

A 14-year-old student booked into a hotel to finish off her homework to avoid getting into trouble, the Qianjiang Evening News reports. The girl was worried she would be told off so used her lai see money (Red Envelope cash) to book the room. Her father alerted police after she went missing from school. Police said she took a taxi to a hotel, where she was found chatting to the owner while doing her homework | South China Morning Post.
