Dongdong, Xixi and their little sister has a Chinese father and a Hungarian mother. The father, Zheng, has been living in Hungary since the year 1990, yet he still holds a critical attitude towards the ‘western way’ of educating children, so he fights a lot with his wife on this. His children are now learning piano, violin, singing, calligraphy, ping-pong, badminton, swimming, kung fu, Chinese, English and so on. They are busy attending different courses every day after school, even every weekend. He gets worried when he is not at home, since the mother doesn’t force the kids to stick to the training schedules.
