To sustain in big cities and earn a living, you try to do some kind of job. It may be a freelance or a traditional 9 to 5 job. But would you leave it if your parents decided to offer you to become a ‘full-time daughter’? Well, in China, a woman left her job when her parents offered 4,000 yuan (approximately ₹47,000) and this is why.
A Woman In China Left Her Job To Become ‘Full-Time Daughter’
A woman, named Nianan (age 40), had worked for a news agency for 15 years before her function changed in 2022, raising her stress levels. This report was recorded in the South China Morning Post. Her parents intervened after noticing this and assured her that they would take care of her financially. They said to her if this was the condition, why doesn’t she simply resign? And they will look after her and provide her with money.
She was spurred by the offer and left her position and decided to be her parents’ “full-time daughter.” She starts her day by dancing for an hour with her parents before going grocery shopping. Additionally, she spends the evenings preparing meals with her father and takes on duties like driving the car and planning vacations. According to her, spending time with her parents had been therapeutic for her.
However, she said that her drive to make more money had been her “biggest pressure source.” She disclosed that her parents had informed her she may go back to work if she got a “suitable job.”
