Being A Child 幼儿的成长期

Being a 3 to 5-year-old is a bed of roses. But the truth is - preschoolers might never have had it tougher. Now parents in Asia are subjecting their offspring, some as young as two, to a relentless regime of learning and training that would equip them, no, arm them with the skills and knowledge for college admission 10 to 12 years into the future. Set in the playrooms of Asia’s megacities, the epicenter of this regional phenomenon, “Being a Child” is the first documentary series to take a balanced and good-humored look at this madly, oddly, sometimes incomprehensibly competitive environment for an honest account of how it is to be raised in Asia. Series is based in HK, Japan, China, Singapore & India.
