In an unverified video tweeted on China’s social media, an anxious mother is calling her daughter at a supermarket: “When your grandma was at your age, we four siblings were all born already!”
She barks: “Remember, you will enter menopause in just a few years!”
In China, traditional parents believe that “no offspring is unacceptable and shameful”. They expect their children to marry and give birth earlier.
Thus conflicts occur.
