In China, parents pay special attention to children's study, they would do anything for the kids to let them have more time to study, so the elder will clean the bedroom and do all the housework for them. While in the western country, children have the duty to do the housework. Parents will be angry if the children do nothing at home. In my opinion, it is the students' duty to share housework. On the one hand, they can reduce the elder's burden. As they are part of the family, it is natural for them to do the cleaning work. On the other hand, the children can learn to take care of themselves and to be independent. The elder should realize that everyone have the duty to share housework. Overprotection of children will do nothing good.
