Parental pressure for better academic performance ...

Constantly pushed to perform better in both academic and extra-curricular activities ...

Indien: „Pushed by the parents to ‘be the best’ in art or music lessons and under pressure to score well in school, some students cannot cope with the demands anymore and emotionally collapse when the stress is high. Constantly pushed to perform better in both academic and extra-curricular activities, some children develop deep rooted nervous disorders in early childhood.“

Academic stress and parental pressure ...

Indien: „More than half of the parents appoint 3 to 4 private tutors or even more for their wards. On days when there are no academic tuitions, there are art or music lessons. The students hardly get time to watch TV, to play or to interact with neighbours freely or even to get adequate sleep. Naturally such students end up being nervous wrecks when the examination pressure mounts.“

Gender shortfall ...

„The gender shortfall is believed to take place through sex-selective abortion, female infanticide or the unequal allocation of health care and food towards males. […] China has 122 boys aged 0-4 for every 100 girls. […] Ratios in excess of the upper range of birth norms are also observed in the Republic of Korea, Hong Kong (China) and India.“
