Hong Kong government backs ‘Positive Parents Campaign’ to change mindset of ultra-competitive parents

After a 15-month review period, a committee appointed by the HK government has made a proposal to use a variety of platforms to spread a message that parents’ obsession with academic grades may not be healthy for their children.

Chairman of the task force Tim Lui Tim-leung said “It’s understandable that all parents want the best for their kids but more doesn’t mean better because if it becomes a rigid routine of countless tutors and after-school courses, it strips children of their right to really enjoy learning.”
