Zheng Honghai has been living in Hungary for over 27 years. He is married to a Hungarian woman and has three kids. “You can not rely on her at all”, he says talking about the way of educating their children. “She just sets them free from all classes when I am not at home. She says kids should only play. How funny!” Honghai firmly believes in traditional Chinese way of education which is strict, intensive and serious. His boys are learning to play the piano and the violin, they are swimming, singing, playing chess, drawing, learning calligraphy, practicing kung fu at the same time. The father is sure: what he is doing is for the kids’ good.
