There is a big demand on foreign childminders nowadays in China. China is very competitive country and parents want to give as many opportunities to their kids as they can. Despite our squeamishness about cultural stereotypes, there are tons of studies out there showing marked and quantifiable differences between Chinese and Westerners when it comes to parenting. Western way to raise kids combines both studies and fun, showing students that studying may be exciting and fascinating. Chinese parents are more focused on the final results, without giving a chance for fun, rest and any distracting entertainment.
But lately Chinese educational system underwent changes towards Europeanization. Parents are starting looking for an easier way of learning English for their kids. And the best solution is to invite a guest from another country to their house and to make English an everyday language. Chinese people are really interested in foreign cultures and traveling as well as they love sharing their traditions to foreigners.
