This is not going to come as a surprise to anyone. You really don't need a Sociological degree in Marriage and Family either. After spending enough time observing locals from East to Southeast Asia, Asia is literally just Asia "America" or Asia "Europe" or Asia "Westernized Land". Just change the map already.
I don't say this in a totally negative way though. It's just what Asia has become and is becoming.
I literally found myself laughing today as I saw a glimpse of Asia in 10 years. The Western and European influences are clear as day! The "Westernized" foods aren't quite up to par though yet. I have my jokes about that. Some of yall do as well. The creations are amazing aka just make your own western food. lol
Beyond the elements of traditional culture that exists in Asia, there are clear thoughts of "these kids, these parents, these places, etc, etc are just like westerners!" will come at some point.
Asia in 10 years is definitely going to see your typical "eye roll" behaviors from kids and parents, esp with parents becoming lazier and lazier with child rearing. I said what I said. I've seen the "eh whatever" regrets of parents these days. They know they can't give them back. Unfortunately you still see some having more and more to keep a relationship together. Sociologically speaking, more children actually increase the likelihood of divorce, esp by the time the child is age 5 to 13.
Why are young people still having kids though? Who is telling them to do so? I remember one sociological reporting on the subject though that was done by Asians throughout Asian countries. Despite low birth rates, there are still unplanned pregnancies, social pressures, and conditioning that goes into it.
On the other hand there are Asians and Interracial couples in Asia that have stuffed animals, fish, and/or other pets as their "children". They know what's affordable!
Obesity to Vitamin and mineral deficiencies in children and adults are still issues everywhere though. It's just cheaper to care for the health of a pet or a non living stuffed animal from a claw machine.
If you're still confused on what I've been talking about in terms of Asia's present and future forecast, the Benzi Project skit is the perfect perspective from many Asian and foreigner Millennials.
I saw this skit last year and knew I had to test it out for myself. Accurate honesty strikes again in comedy! It doesn't matter how many people come over to Asia at this point. The pot has already been stirred. It's also a bit spicy. ;)
