Are parents really selfless towards their children?  父母對子女真的是無私的嗎? - TonyWong -        MapleRipples
 
Many people say parents are selfless towards their children. I certainly couldn't disagree with them, which would left me at a huge disadvantage in the culture I live in. Frankly, not that I couldn't agree, I wouldn't. I did believe parents always gave, never asked for returns.

It wasn't until recently when I read two pieces of news did I start to doubt the undoubted. Are parents REALLY selfless towards their children?

The first news though, was a story in our wealthy neighbor, Hong Kong. An infant girl was starved to death by her parents, who weren't a legal couple, 6 months after she was born. Her parents lived on social insurance money and spent more bucks on cigarettes than on diluted milk powers for feeding her. In the end, she passed away with less weight than when she came to this cold-blooded world.

The latest news, which of course shouldn't be counted as a news to normal Chinese people, took place in China. A 8-year-old girl was beaten to death by her parents for her stealing 8 year from her mom, an accountant. After disclosing her misbehavior, or felony in the couple's eyes, the parents "disciplined" her with sticks and canes to continuously torture her, whopping and smacking  for over 2 hours. The girl was found dead later at a hospital with treatment to no avail.

All of these tragedies lead to the question. No one is selfless, every one is selfish. That has become an iron rule ever since the renaissance when people started to admit dark sides of humanity. Now, why do Chinese people, overwhelmingly, think parents are selfless? Do parents themselves really believe that, or just make use of that? I tend to go with the later.

For centuries, the doctrine proposing parents are always good to their children, always kind to their children and never hurt children is just a social propaganda. Parents take advantage of this thought to put themselves at the top of the ethical pyramid and thus to order their children, shape them, color them with whatever parents want. Just think back of your childhood time, didn't your parents always tell you "I did all these because I care for you, because I want you to be good. Parents never hurt you."? That's definitely bullshit and logically groundless. Clearly if a person cares for someone else is insufficient to prove what the person does is positive for the else man. A really good person, and if he's really good for another man, he should put consequences first, not motives. Come on, I just proved the so-called GOOD PARENTS DOCTRINE is just another rubbishy conspiracy.
