For one, it’s very common to see grandparents taking an active role in raising their grandchildren. You’ll often catch grandparents walking their grandkids to and from school, helping with household chores (they’ll often live with their son/daughter’s family), assisting with the family business, and preparing dinner for the entire family while still somehow finding the time to go square dancing in the evening! Whew!
In addition, Chinese culture is also brimming with a multitude of healthy activities that are practiced regularly by elders.
Each day, typically in the morning or late evening, you’ll find plenty of individuals and groups of senior citizens practicing tai-chi, a Chinese martial art that promotes longevity, playing badminton, brisk walking, or square dancing to tunes in public spaces.
Wouldn’t you like to see more health benefiting activities, such as tai-chi, dancing, and badminton, setup for elders across America?
