Unfortunately if you want to be in this system there is no way around it. Unless you don’t put your child to study here and just be abroad, but then that child won’t be able to come back until she finishes university as the entrance exams are really hard.
I was thinking, you know, just screw it, let the kid be a kid. But by doing so I would be jeopardizing her future academic life because there was no way she could pass a high school exam or university. And just be sent to some forsaken county to study.
That’s what I really hate about Taiwan. There is no childhood here. And then adults that can’t mature.
