中国人为孩子移民:”到头来孩子或成牺牲品”

  中国人为什么要移民?几乎所有调查都显示,被访者都说,孩子的教育是首要原因。但是,为孩子的教育而移民真是那么天经地义无须三思?

  文化差异是值得思考的一点。这是人人都知道的,孩子小,难适应,文化差异影响成长和学习,我们只要看看认识的华人家庭,就会发现读书不成的移民孩子比比皆是。为孩子而移民,到头来孩子可能变成牺牲品。

  美国社会的反智倾向也值得注意。这里中小学数学水平低,是众所周知的事实(加州的高中毕业考,数学只考至初级代数),其他科目(地理历史科学)的知识水平也低,一般高中生的阅读能力也不高。

  更要重视的是身分的问题。一般来说,孩子在10岁以上来美或10岁以下来美有很大分别,10岁以下的,较易于适应新生活,易于全盘接受美国的语言、思想和价值观,10岁以上的则较难。但问题是:孩子全盘美化,会变成为美国人,一切行为思想被同化,往往只说英语(不再说中文),以美国的价值观去看事情(中国的家庭观念消失)。

Why do numerous Chinese want to emigration? Most of the survey practically show that all the interviewees said that the principal reason of emigration is children’s education. However, is it really ture that emigration for education is correct?

Culture diffrence is considerable issue. As we knew that for little children it’s diffcult to accustm to live and study in different custom. Just looking at the Chinese-American families, a lot of the children in their family don’t study very well. Emigration for kids may make them victim in the end.

On the other hand, anti tendency should also be careful. As we knew, in the primary school and middle school, they don’t have good math level(California High School Exit Examination, mathematics had only Pre-Algebra). Likewise, other subjects and reading skill are not good enough in the high school.

Most important problem is identity. Normally, there is a big difference between the children whose age are over 10 or under 10. For the children whose age are under 10 years old, it’s much easier to get used to living in a new lives and acceptting American language, ideas and value whereas it’s harder for the children who are over 10. The problem is that the children become a American in all their behaviour and the way of thinking. They can just speak English(no Chinese any more) and think in American way(no idea about Chinese tranditional family and custom)
