Our son was barely two years old when we enrolled him in a daycare in China. We were two western parents raising a child abroad, and we liked to believe we were doing a pretty good job at it. We took pride in the belief that our boy was ahead of the curve.
But when he showed up with a diaper under his pants, the teachers reacted like we’d brought him in covered in bruises.
“No good,” the head of the daycare said with tsk and a disappointed shake of her head. “We will fix this.”
