Getting Up - 起床

Getting up in the morning is often hard for young people.  People who need to get up on time in order to go to school or work often find reliable means to wake them up.

In the US, independent people often use alarm clock to woke them up, while in China, young people often rely on their elders to wake them up.

Not only old people need to wake up their adult child(ren) who live with them, they are to wake up visiting nieces and nephews and their families.

As the manufacturer for the world, alarm clock can be easily bought in China and it won't cost much.  The dependence of the young people on their elders is rather unseemly.

Perhaps there are tiger-mothers and wolf-fathers in China, but they are, actually rare.
