Headline December 25, 2018/ '' 'CHINA'S STUDENTS CHANTS' ''


IN THE REAL BOYS CLUB : the lessons of manhood are taught in slogans. Before the boys do their homework -

They pledge to study hard for the ''rise of China'', starting with the words : I am a real man! The main bearer of the family and social responsibility in the future! The backbone of the Chinese people!''

Mr. Tang was also inspired by a 2006 trip to Oakland, Calif, where he saw American parents teach their boys to ''overcome challenges and dangers'' through physical training.

In China, by contrast, many parents try to protect their sons, a cultural bias, that has been magnified by the one-child policy.

The survey by the China Academy of Educational Sciences found that ''whether it was in life or in school, parents had a tendency to spoil boys.''

Mr. Tang said ''real men'' are gallant. [''I can never ask this of a girl,'' said Mr. Tang who has a 3-year-old daughter  This is a trait unique to boys ]

Others traits that boys should have, he said, include courage. etiquette, the ability to distinguish right from wrong, and an understanding of ''honor'' and disgrace.''

At the start of the program, several of the boys spoke only in whisper or cried for half an hour, said Mr. Guo, one of the teachers.

''When one of them cries, we will definitely not comfort him,'' said Mr. Guo, 30, ''We will only encourage him to be strong.''

Every Sunday, the boys hop on a bus at 7.40 am and ride to a sports school nestled in the hills of  western Beijing, where they play soccer, games that involve teamwork and strength, and football - a sport that is still new to many in China.

One day they will run shirtless.

I never get to play soccer during the week,'' said Sun Shuje, 10. Earlier Mr had asked him to share his story about giving up his smartphone during the week.

The boys do their homework in a school surrounded by framed posters of famous scientists and engineers. Only one woman is pictured : the Polish scientist and physicist Marie Curie.

Some in China blame boys lacking behavior on a lack of male role models.

Fathers are rarely involved in their sons upbringing, according to government research.

Every pop culture figures have sparked complaints : a number of parents were outraged when China's state broadcaster, China Central Television , in September featured a boy band whose members wore makeup.

The parents complained that these pop idols could cause their sons to behave in a feminine way.''

The Real Boys Club is meant to foster self-sufficiency, with the study period encouraging the boys to meet their goals without their parents hovering over them.

Jin Hong, 9, said his parents would constantly breathe down his neck about schoolwork at home. ''The thing I like the most about the program is that I can study independently.'' he said.

But the program does not encourage the boys to run amok. Boys who commit infractions - pushing other boys, hurling vulgarities - get points deducted and can get demoted from from the ''phoenix''  level to the ''smelly egg'' level.

For Ms. Sun's son, Fang Dingyue, it got to be too much, After Mr. Tang singled him out for not keeping up while marching, Dingyue burst into tears.

Other men say they have doubts about the effectiveness of male-oriented schools, Wang Chenpeng, 23, a marketing employee for a storage company who loves wearing makeup, said his mother buried all his dolls because she thought they were girlle.

He later came out as gay.

On the surface, these children may try to keep in line with the requirements of their parents and these educational institutions, and then present a superficial image,'' he said.

''But their essence will remain the same.''

With respectful dedication to the Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of China, and then the world.
