What are the Causes of Bad Behavior in Children?

王淑怡 供稿

The Bad Kids, which is based on a Chinese novel of the same name written by Zi Jinchen, became the most talked-about Chinese television drama in this summer. The suspense thriller revolves around three teenagers who unwittingly records a murder and how the incident upends the lives of several families. 
《隐秘的角落》无疑是今年夏天讨论热度最高的国产悬疑剧。该剧改编自紫金陈的同名小说,讲述了三名少年无意间拍摄到一桩命案,几个家庭的生活由此发生了天翻地覆的变化。

It doesn’t shy away from weighty social issues, zeroing in on the importance of a child’s upbringing to the development of their character and moral compass. The protagonist, Zhu Chaoyang, whose dark streak is exacerbated by loneliness, run-ins with bullies, and intense pressure from his mother to excel in school, is also largely ignored by his father. The other main characters, Yan Liang and Pu Pu, were raised in an orphanage and then escape to Chaoyang’s city in search of funds to cure the leukemia of Pu Pu’s younger brother. All three kids come from broken families that cannot provide them with attention, affection or security that other children enjoy.
该剧并没有回避复杂沉重的社会问题,而是聚焦家庭教育对儿童的性格塑造和道德发展方面的影响。主角朱朝阳内心的阴暗面因一系列问题而不断激化:孤独、遭到霸凌、母亲在学业方面向其施加的巨大压力以及父亲长期以来对他的忽视。另外两个主人公严良和普普从小在孤儿院长大,从孤儿院逃出来之后来到朱朝阳所在的城市,给普普患白血病的弟弟筹钱治病。三个孩子各自都有着支离破碎的原生家庭,缺乏关爱,也无法像其他孩子那样获得安全感。

According to psychologist Jonice Webb, childhood emotional neglect happens when a parent fails to respond to a child’s emotional needs. It may sound like nothing, but actually it can have as great an impact upon a child as abuse. Without any doubt,Zhu Chaoyang’s parents have greatly neglected their kid’s emotional needs. His father prefers spending time with his new wife and daughter. And his controlling mother, who divorced from a cheating husband, places all her hopes on her son and sees education the only way to armor his son against this harsh world.
心理学家乔尼斯·韦伯曾提出童年期情感忽视(CEN)这一概念,指父母对于孩子的情感需求没能做出充分的回应。童年期情感忽视似乎听起来不足一提,但实际上,它对孩子所造成的影响甚至不亚于家庭暴力。毫无疑问,朱朝阳的父母在很大程度上忽视了孩子的情感需求。父亲再婚组建了新的家庭后,他的爱早已倾斜给了新的妻子和女儿。而朱朝阳的母亲在经历了丈夫的背叛后,变得控制欲极强,把全部的希望寄托在了儿子身上,认为教育才是在这个残酷世界立足的唯一出路。

The television drama simply asks questions about who should be responsible for the actions of the bad kids, and how the traumatic experiences in the childhood are forcing out the dark sides of their personalities. Alfred Adler once said, “Lucky people are healed by their childhoods their whole lives, while unlucky people spend their whole lives healing from their childhoods.” For kids, the miserable experiences caused by their main family members could have a lasting traumatic impact on their whole lives. Therefore, parents should ensure the emotional health of their kids, providing appropriate emotional support and guidance so as to give them a happy childhood.
看完这部电视剧,人们不禁会思考,到底谁才应该为坏小孩的行为负责?童年时期的悲惨经历是如何激起儿童性格中隐藏的阴暗面的?阿尔弗雷德·阿德勒曾说:“幸运的人一生都在被童年治愈,不幸的人一生都在治愈童年。”对于孩子来说,原生家庭的伤痕可能一辈子都难以抹去。因此,家长们应尽可能确保孩子的心理健康,为其提供一定的情感支持和引导,给孩子一个幸福的童年。

Wish there will be no more bad kids.
愿世间自此再无坏小孩。
