Internet Crazed Teen Jumps To Death

from the reality-or-propaganda? dept

An article from China Daily talks about a teenager who jumped to his death after his parents forbade him from going to a local cybercafe. There are all sorts of quotes that make this whole internet thing seem like a horrible drug that is dangerous for our teens to be around. Substitute “cocaine” or “heroin” for the word “internet” in the article.

…and they’ll jump if you take it away.

In all seriousness, the one child policy has lead to some very misdirected child-rearing practices and the children know *exactly* what they have to do to make their parents’ lives meaningless… it’s pretty cool actually, in an angst sort of way.
