Pram

This kind of children's carriage you almost don't find anymore in Beijing. It is made of bamboo.

Grandparents

Grandparents are very important in China. Both parents usually go to work. They leave their child with the grandparents and see it mainly on the weekends

Little Empress

As in China people are allowed to have only one child, this only child is spoiled rotten. This causes many problems today. But it is very important to cut down the rate of population growth.

Sunday

Sundays are the day, when people go to the many parks with their children.

Boys

An old tradition says, that only a son can do the right rituals, so that the parents come into heaven. Even nowadays it is very important for Chinese people to have a son.

Children's Games

It is surprising to see, that little girls in Beijing play the same game as I did, when I was a little child. In Germany we call this game "Gummitwist". Two girls are holding a rubberband between them, and the other girls jump over it and twist the rubberband and their legs .
