Therefore, instead of absorbing knowledge naturally, they are jam-packed with it. For instance, my six years old sister nowadays hate study and started to avoid from books because it was too hard and she can’t receive in a short time. They are overburdened with the workload and hardly have time for recreation and relaxation. Definitely, nervous tension is unavoidable.

For example, they always require their children to gain brilliant academic records and take little note of how much suffering their children have to run into. Besides that, the parents with high expectation will always stare on their children’s homework and force them to study all the time without providing any rest or entertainment for them. In this way, children are put under incredible pressure, which can easily lead to some psychological problems, especially stress.
