Survey finds Shanghai children lack freedom at home

LOCAL children demand more freedom and respect at home, according to a survey released this week by the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

The poll on nearly 2,000 school-age children found that they are most opposed to parents for depriving them of freedom to do what they like during the holidays and checking their mails and cell phone massages without permission.

Children of different ages showed different levels of tolerance for right infringement, researcher Dong Xiaoping said.

About 26 percent of high school students cannot tolerate their parents stealing a look at their mails or text messages while only 12 percent of primary students cannot tolerate it.

On the contrary, high school students are more tolerant to summer vacations arranged by their parents as they have become accustomed to do homework during the holidays after many years.
