Mother Grinds Through Online Game So Her Daughter Doesn't Have To

Online games require time. Time isn't something that 10-year-old Xiao Liu has. See, her mum has been limiting how long she could play online with her friends. That has made the girl upset. How was she to level up and keep up the pace with her friends?

Not having enough time to grind, Xiao kept throwing tantrums, which became more and more of a problem. Mrs. Liu decided to make a compromise with her daughter. A highly unusual compromise at that.

"I play the game for my daughter," Mrs Liu told 10yan. "A few months ago she started playing this game with her friends and would play all the time, forgetting to do her homework."

While Xiao was studying, Mrs Liu would play and level up her daughter's character in online game Mole Manor. The game, which is quite similar to Animal Crossing, is a simple online browser game that's quite popular in China with children — so much so that there's even a cartoon version, and at least one mother grinding through it for her kid.

    My dad did this for me as a kid, and he even did it recently a bit with GW2 lol.

    I've heard of similar happening in Australia before. But only from a mum who already played the game.

    Are you sure Mrs. Liu doesn't have a secret affection for Mole Manor?

    Wow. Great parenting! Teaching your kid to demand ridiculous shit and bowing to them. Sad that people support this little princess and her behaviour.

      Yeah, she'll grow up to be a well-adjusted young lady.
      Can't get what she wants? Throw a tanty, and mum will sort it out.

      blame western influence for that. In the old days the chinese mom would've spanked her kid and told her to go study. But these days child protection agencies overreact to just about everything. There is a big difference between a parent who punishes their child to discipline them, a parent who hits their child because they're a cruel psycho and a parent who hits their child because they lost control. But for the government and so called 'child protection' advocates all three are considered the same thing.

        WTF. China is China - not the west. Look up little prince syndrome. No one mentioned beating children. Merely good parenting skills. Wtf your anti child protection agenda has to do with this - i do not know. Please don't hijack this conversation with your internal problems.

    My kid only gets to play games when he does his homework first. He's even on our raid team and I won't let him raid unless his work is done. Simple as that.

    Smack to the back of the head would have solved the issue... forever
