A sophomore university English student accurately portrays the conflict between traditionally Eastern collective society vs. the Western individualist mentality that is emerging in Vietnam.
The heartfelt video story demonstrates this conflict using fictional characters, while the blog article explains the details of this conflict.
“The biggest conflict of Vietnamese parents is that they want their children to become independent individuals, which is proved by the fact that they spend lots of money sending their children to life skills courses, in contrast, they tend to take care of their children too much even when the children have grown up. Although the tendency of extended family is less popular in Vietnam than in the past, a new trend that parents and children live nearby in order to take care of one another illustrates part of that tradition.”
