“Now young people’s hearts are very fragile, only child is too pretentious, the family is a baby outside can not suffer a little aggravation.”
“Society is too impatient, what to lose in the starting line and other words from the post-00s, these urgent work ethos is now gradually emerging, many children’s psychological capacity is too weak.”
“Now the education itself is unreasonable, children’s parents are too tired too anxious”
“There should be a complete reform of exam-oriented education and emphasis on the mental health and quality education of children and adolescents.”
“In the past, our children were resistant to blows and setbacks, and they wouldn’t think about dying even if it was a big deal. Now children are spoiled, can not stand a little aggression, can not withstand a little blow, jumping to suicide at every turn, should not reflect on our family education, social environment and school education?”

Cheng Yizhong, the former editor-in-chief of Southern Metropolis Daily and the first editor-in-chief of Xinjing Daily, told Radio Free Asia, “Why is it that every time there is a similar emergency or natural or man-made disaster, the authorities first try to silence and suppress public opinion, and then resort to the silly way of sneaking around and trying to cover it up?” The answer is simple: China’s “facts” are determined by a “unipolar ruling mindset that allows only praise but not criticism” and “pursues a super-stable structure.
He believes that it is natural for people to be suspicious of official reports: “The People’s Daily and Xinhua News Agency have made many rumors, told many lies and caused many natural and man-made disasters throughout history. Now all the media in China have become the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, how can we believe them? There is no reason to believe it!”
