Description

“Chinese mums and dads have a higher tendency to share household responsibilities and a willingness to encourage independence in their children (and themselves) than previous generations have. Educational high-tech tools (eg language learning and financial management) and taking care of pets are more likely to be considered a help rather than a distraction.”
– Alina Ma, Senior Research Analyst

This Report looks at the following areas:

  • Pet, the new icon in commercials targeting young families
