As children develop their worldview, morals, and viewpoints, family upbringing plays a crucial role. Indeed, the role of Chinese parents has shifted due to the country’s fast economic growth, and there have also been significant changes in lifestyle, which include the adoption of new technology, improved living conditions, and increasing educational pressure on the younger generation. This study utilizes a blend of secondary sources and first-hand testimonials in order to examine the influence of Chinese parenting techniques on children of my age, who were born after 1990, normally called the “Post- 90s” generation, as well as how our living situations and school experience amplify our stress. Parenting styles shape our perceptions of gender roles, potential career trajectories, and marital expectations. If the formation of human character is closely related to family, we must evaluate theimpact of familial upbringing on children and take the best from both the old and new ways. We must also consider the impact of these styles on children’s future growth and psychological well-being as well as how this informs the younger generation’s mindset towards the next generation. Finally, this essay considers proposals for feasible model of effective parenting for future parents. Through a combined analysis and proposal, my research sheds light on the complex structure and role of parent-child relationships in the modern day Asia Pacific.
