Feather Dusterof Doom
Posted 7/7/08 , edited 7/7/08
Are your kids terribly behaved and display bad habits? Do they lack motivation to succeed? Are they just plain stupid? Well then the Chinese Feather Duster is the answer to your problems!


Instilling fear in the hearts of Chinese children since god knows when..

Chinese feather dusters are probably one of the most infamous and useful inventions created in the world. This timeless design is a terrific instrument of pain. Cheap and also having the ability for multiple functions, this is perfect for you. Long term use gives better results. Available everywhere in China Town.



lol Well this post is addressing the discipline methods of Chinese parents. I'm surprised I didn't think about writing this sooner. When my dad still owned one, sometimes the duster would break in the middle of educating us and he would just duct tape it back together and continue XD. Anyways, everyone is familiar with the process of becoming a better person by encouragement of physical force.

In a Chinese household...

Avoid buying or leaving things with a good grip lying around conveniently for parents to pick up. This would include rulers, novelty pencils, plastic swords (and their sheaths), plastic car tracks, hangers, slippers, flip flops, curtain rods, back scratchers-- anything long with a handle on it. Chinese parents are insanely creative and resourceful. If they manage to get hold of something, do not dodge and most importantly, do. not. run. Keep the hand steady or bare your ass with courage and embrace the pain because it's inevitable.

Behave during meal times. The kitchen is considered the most dangerous place to be in if you manage to screw up. You're in a small enclosed area within projectile throwing distance, with an angry parent. Not a good idea. You are surrounded by an infinite number of possibilities-- chopsticks (hurt a lot more than you would think), spoons, knives (worse case scenario), pans, assorted cooking utensils, brooms, and not to mention the dreaded feather duster on top of the refrigerator-- you're in for a world of hurt.

I think Chinese parents take things a little too literally sometimes. The term "knock some sense into you" is very misleading because the only thing that happens when you knock your kid's head when you want them to learn is kill their brain cells, which is quite ironic considering Chinese parents are so gung ho on having intelligent minded children. In some other special case families, it's a little different. Hitting the head is off limits (they understand how the brain works I guess), but everything else is game.

I love it when they say, "this hurts me more than it hurts you." Completely bs. That's easy to say when you're not on the other end of the stick.

Effective as physical discipline methods may be, it may not strengthen the bond between you and your parents, but it certainly does strengthen your resolve to do good in school so you can get the hell out of there as soon as you can to a far away college.
"有甘遠走甘遠" (yau gam yuen, jau gam yuen)

flashback:
I was in Hong Kong during winter break with my family and we met one of my dad's childhood friends. My dad told us beforehand that he was a very benevolent guy who didn't believe in hitting his kids. Curious to see if this was true, we asked him about it, and much to our amusement, he said to us (I'll remember this forever), "I believe the hand of love will guide the way." All of us looked at each other and cracked up. It was phenomenal XD That's rich. lol. Good luck with that.

I'm guessing you got Dim Sum from Romeo Must Die since thats where I've heard it. Considering its from that movie its not a compliment at all.

Feather dusters? hangers? brushes? Wow. Thats pretty weak. No one ever got hit by pool sticks, belts, etc? Those hurt much much more.

I remember my parents telling me that they get similar treatment before when they were young except that we use an entirely different thing(I forgot the name of that thing though).
