Excerpt from An Accommodation Program for Second-Generation Chinese The Parents. The real factor which controls the fate Of the younger generation Chinese is, after all, the parents. Their spheres Of influence are both the home and the Chi nese-language school. TO be good parents they have to learn modern ways Of raising and educating children; for without such knowledge they will not be able to perform their duty and realize their true love. They must know that home environment affects the personality and the future life of the child, and, therefore, must try, as far as their economic conditions may allow, to provide a wholesome home. With regard to their relationship with the Chinese-language school, the writer has found out that they should change their present atti tude along the following lines: (1) they must know that education for the children is far more than a mere matter Of family pride or tradition - it should be a thing which will make the young worthy members Of the society in which they are going to live; (2) they should not judge the type Of education desirable for their children by the standards Of their own generation; and (3) they should not select any teacher either because he is their kinsman, or because he is poor and needs a job, or because he came from the same district as they did - for teachers selected by standards other than training, ability, personality, and scholarship will have irremediable effect on the children.
