三代同堂的育儿生活:血缘是家庭的最终归宿|深度|端传媒 Initium Media

妮妮对小弟弟的到来非常焦虑。只要我给弟弟喂奶,或者只是看了弟弟一眼,妮妮便会发出尖叫。李媛说,晚上是外公外婆带妮妮睡觉,但只要妮妮夜里醒来发现妈妈不在身边,就会哭喊。刺耳的哭闹声回荡在黑漆漆的夜里,又把峰峰惊醒,两个孩子接连陷入歇斯底里的状态,四个大人只能惺忪着睡眼,哄着、抱着、照顾着……

但是,没有任何一个爷爷奶奶、外公外婆会后悔亲手带大了自己的孙辈,李媛说,孩子是我和家人情感最重要的体现,血缘才是一个家庭最终的归宿。

Where Millennials Come From

Millennials, according to recent headlines, are killing hotels, department stores, chain restaurants, the car industry, the diamond industry, the napkin industry, homeownership, marriage, doorbells, motorcycles, fabric softener, hotel-loyalty programs, casinos, Goldman Sachs, serendipity, and the McDonald’s McWrap.

Parents overemphasized self-esteem and happiness, while kids took their cues from an era of diversity initiatives, decentralized authority, online avatars, and reality TV. As a result, millennials have become irresponsible and fundamentally maladjusted. They believe that every job will be fulfilling and then can’t even find a boring one. They must lower their expectations and dim their glittering self-images in order to become functional adults.

the notion of disruptive self-interest

Millennials, in other words, have adjusted too well to the world they grew up in; their perfect synchronization with economic and cultural disruption has been mistaken for the source of the disruption itself.

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?
More comfortable in their bedrooms than in a car or at a party, today’s teens are physically safer than teens have ever been. They’re markedly less likely to get into a car accident and, having less of a taste for alcohol than their predecessors, are less susceptible to drinking’s attendant ills.

Gen X managed to stretch adolescence beyond all previous limits: Its members started becoming adults earlier and finished becoming adults later. Beginning with Millennials and continuing with iGen, adolescence is contracting again—but only because its onset is being delayed. Across a range of behaviors—drinking, dating, spending time unsupervised— 18-year-olds now act more like 15-year-olds used to, and 15-year-olds more like 13-year-olds. Childhood now stretches well into high school.

China migration: At the turning point - FT.com
As a share of its population, Guang’an was the biggest contributor to China’s “migrant miracle”, three decades of breakneck economic growth underpinned by an unprecedented flow of labour from countryside to city, according to a Financial Times analysis of data from China’s 2010 census. Nearly a third of Guang’an’s 4.7m registered inhabitants no longer live here.
