Jackie Chan: “Jaycee Should Go to Prison Every Year”
After serving six months in prison for marijuana possession, Jaycee Chan (房祖名) transformed into a better man. Apologizing for his wrongdoings, Jaycee also amended his relationship with father Jackie Chan (成龍). While Jackie is not used to Jaycee’s improved behavior, the family is slowly starting to become whole again.
Father and Son Bond
Known as a strict father figure, Jackie’s busy schedule allowed little to no communication with his son over the last decade. Jackie reminisced the first time the family had dinner together after Jaycee’s release from prison, “When we were eating dinner, we didn’t have much to talk about but it felt very warm. We haven’t been like this for a long time! It was a little awkward and difficult to describe, but I asked him about his imprisonment. He said he spent time with several people and it was very cold there. However, in those six months, he didn’t hold a grudge. He even said, ‘Dad, now I have more experience than you. If you anything happens in the future, come to me!’
“I also noticed that my wife kept looking at our expressions, and serving tea and food while we chatted. She kept smiling. We kept talking and without knowing it – it was already morning.”
Jackie: “Jaycee Should Go to Jail Every Six Months”
Recalling Jaycee’s rebellious behavior before his imprisonment, Jackie said he is still not used to his son’s transformation. Jaycee now helps his mother cook and clean, and spends more time communicating with Jackie. Hoping Jaycee’s personality will remain like this from now on, Jackie joked, “I told him – why don’t you go back to prison every year for six months!”
