Reviews - What do customers think about Growing up the Chinese Way: Chinese Child and Adolescent Development?
interesting and inspirational Jul 26, 2006
This book challenged me to rethink some of my beliefs and preconceptions about Chinese culture. It helped me to gain a deeper understanding about some controversial issues of Chinese children's development, not only in China but also in different parts of the world.
Mediocre Sep 5, 2003
This book is not one of the highest level. Much of the points about adolescent developments can be read from other more detailed works. While this book focusses on the Chinese perspective, from my own experience, some of the contents are rather cliche ridden and may not be that accurate.

This was and still is the first book of its kind in covering different aspects of Chinese child and adolescent development. Several chapters are especially intriguing and thought provoking as they attempt to raise facts and issues against the traditional ways of thinking about Chinese children and adolescent development. These chapters include the ones on self-concept, only child, delinquency, academic achievement, parenting style, and a few others. All chapters are well written and are a fun to read. The book will provide a good reference for a graduate course in developmental psychology and cross-cultural study.
