In theory, having someone check in to see if a kid's being neglected or abused, and provide parenting lessons to the family, when a kid acts up is a good thing.

But it's China so I imagine it won't work out that way.

I suspect that we know significantly more about their situation then the average citizen knows about their situation because we have free press and they do not.

I slapped/punched a teacher in 3rd grade. My parents would probably get the death penalty for that.

Don't we have this already in the US? Pretty sure parents get charged when their kids burn shiat, destroy shiat, or shoot up a school. Parental liability has centuries long standing so long as we agreed that kids shouldn't be locked up.

Yes, we should mandate regular government check-ins on all households with children that "misbehave".
Nothing could go wrong there.

In my mind it was like a haymaker in a bar fight, but it was probably as weak as a 3rd grader would deliver.

I was on the bus one day waiting to go home. A teacher who was a bus line monitor came on the bus and grabbed me, saying that another student said I had flipped them the bird through the window. I had done no such thing. I don't know if someone else did and the teacher just grabbed me thinking it was me, or if she miscounted rows in the bus and meant to grab someone else, but I was pulled off the bus and taken to the principal's office where my mom had to come get me. In the middle of the discussion I protested my innocence and the teacher absolutely would not believe me, overrode my protestations, talked over me, belittled me, and otherwise accused me of being a liar. I was a child not really in control of my emotions and I reached a boiling point that I've only done in a few times in my life. In the middle of her basically calling me a lying POS, I scrambled out of my chair to take a few steps and I hit her across the face absolutely as hard as I could at the time. It was probably feeble since I was a child who hadn't started to grow any muscle, but to me it felt like I was delivering a knockout blow.

End result was a 10 day suspension - the longest that could be given short of expulsion from school. They tried to expel me for a year but the alternative school in the adjacent district wouldn't admit me.

We actually don't have anything like that in the US. Notwithstanding the genocides of various Native tribes over the past 400 years and Trump's attempted Holocaust of non-white immigrants, we've never imprisoned parents directly over the misdeeds of their children except where the parents aided and abetted those misdeeds -- e.g. neither the Parkland school shooter's parents nor Kenosha Kyle's mother are being charged with murder.

Because both guys couldn't be sure if the other was a government monitor.

"Hello. Your child has mentioned some place called Tienanmen Square, and something that they think happened there. Not only does this place not exist, but nothing has happened there. We are sending all of you to a re-education camp for your child's insolence."

That's how it will go down in modern China.


Of course you can mention Tiananmen Square. It is the beating heart of China and will remain so. You cannot mention the June 4th Incident, the Tiananmen Square Massacree either with or without four-part harmony and full orchestration, the 89 Protests and may the spirits of Mao help you if you say the name Hu Yaobang.

But that isn't what this is about, anyway. It is about the 'nationalities.' That is, the indigenous and other non-Han or anyway less assimilated peoples of China. And they are many. Many, many, many. Some of ye may remember I've shot a couple 'food documentaries' out in the Chinese sticks. That ain't because I wanted to experience wedding rice or to forage for food; it's the only way we could shoot around these people and not get them killed or reeducated and, ourselves, freely leave afterwards. I leave to your imagination the plenitude of false papers, fat US dollar bribes and general trickery that kind of gig entails.

I will tell a story from the Back Of Beyond. About the wedding-rice people, as it happens. So there we were, my partner in crime and I having accidentally become engaged by sharing this special purple rice and having had an excellent day otherwise eating and laughing and shooting and interviewing. Neither one of us spoke the local language and our elderly interlocutors obviously weren't speaking Mandarin (this happened a lot) and when the fixer - this particular fixer was very nervous about the enterprise and was hot to gtfo for all the reasons you imagine - bailed back to the nearest bit of civilization we were there on our own. This kind of thing also happened a lot. Fixers aren't usually paid to be brave, eh? And yours truly, always on the lookout for a nice image and any chance to contrast & compare, got the half-bright idea we should scare up the grandkids and talk to them. Which we did.

These bright youngsters didn't speak the local language either, hey. They spoke flawless Mandarin and nothing but. They didn't know about the wedding rice that had linked their grandparents nor had they ever heard their grandfather's brilliant performances on a one-string instrument-thingie. They had seen their grandparents in trad clothing but they didn't like it; it was un-Chinese to them. And I was cool, despite being giant and Martian and not giving them my Coca-Cola but my producer - racially Mongolian not Han - was very iffy to them, even though she gave them hers. Very iffy indeed. "Why are you traveling with a Korean?" they asked a couple times. "You should find a good Chinese to work with."

They were eight and six.

Third grade, another student accused me of bullying him and throwing rocks at him at recess. Wasn't allowed to even argue. I got beaten with a wooden paddle with holes in it so you could swing it faster. (This was, best estimate, 1986) Honestly, I think the principal got his jollies hurting kids.

We could have gone to the same school.

Those people at my school were awful. There was a lot of socioeconomic class snobbery because my parents lucked into buying a house in an area that later became the place for white and moneyed flight. Other kids had a dad who was a lawyer, accountant, doctor, pilot, executive, dentist, etc. and we were looked down upon because my dad built tires in a factory. He used his hands to do actual work!

They were just awful people.
