Differences between eastern education and Chinese education

I told my husband that my English teacher praised me on the English
speaking and writing. He replied that I should not be so proud of such compliment;
I still have much to learn in English. I know it is true, but his response did depress
me, and let me think about what brings such a result. Why do I seldom get praise
from my parents, my Chinese teacher and my husband?


Maybe the phenomenon comes from traditional history; people think that
criticism would make students to learn correctly and fast. I don’t like
it. Every one knows that it is the best way to cultivate children through
encouraging and praising, and to give them confidence to do something. Even though
I don’t like Chinese education style, I was influenced by it because of
over 17 years of education in China.
It shows that I always hope that someone can correct my mistakes, and am a
little embarrassed when hearing compliment.


There is a reporting on differences behavior between Chinese middle
school students and eastern middle school students in a same summer camp which
says that most Chinese students were lack of responsibility and activity. Some
of them were lack of confidence; while on the other hand, some of them were
spoiled and over confidence. I don’t hope that my baby will be educated
like that. It is too early to think about the question, but the time of facing
it comes nearer and nearer.
