Keep an ‘Eye on Taiwan’!
According to a recent survey from the Child Welfare League Foundation, five in 10 child respondents said they don’t talk to their fathers for more than 30 minutes per day. Fewer than three in 10 children have dinner with their fathers fewer than 3 days a week, while 36 percent of father respondents have never attended their kid’s school activities because they are at work, are otherwise too busy or have no interest, the survey found.
As most families celebrate Taiwanese Father’s Day on Aug. 8, because the eighth day of the eighth month, or “ba-ba” (八八) in Chinese, sounds similar to the colloquial word for “daddy” (baba, 爸爸), why don’t you share some memories of your father to be published in next week’s PrimeTalk? Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your real name, nationality, contact number, some photos and a profile. Specify “Eye on Taiwan” in the subject line and ensure your submission is between 300 and 500 words. Writers whose pieces are selected for publication will receive one month’s free subscription to The China Post.
