China - fit in or fail Empty China - fit in or fail

Billie JD Porter reveals what it's really like to grow up in China, where respect for state and elders is being drilled into the next generation. If you don't fit in, you are often seen as a failure. She visits a special bootcamp where kids are sent to be 'fixed' by their parents, and she discovers that many there are gaming addicts.

Bring them all up as nice little robots, who have to succeed in school or end up killing themselves, and this is the system some idiots want us to follow!

That's just episode 1.

Tory minister Liz Truss went out there to study their methods and I'm sure she will have seen some merit in it. Her trip cost a cool £34000.

They apparently have a big problem with gaming addiction in China.
