Well-known as a family man, Jacky Cheung (張學友) worked hard to protect his wife and two daughters from the media spotlight. At a nowTV variety show taping on March 20, Jacky provided a rare glimpse into his family life when he shared his experiences as a father of a teenage daughter.

Fifty-one-year-old Jacky and wife, retired actress May Lo (羅美薇), are parents to twelve-year-old Zoe (張瑤華) and eight-year-old Zia (張瑤萱). Jacky finds parenting a stressful responsibility, and is afraid of teaching his daughters the wrong ideas. Over the years, Jacky had gradually changed his parenting style, adopting a friendlier approach now that his daughters are becoming older.

Jacky lamented that his eldest daughter, Zoe, is entering her teenage years and is becoming rather rebellious. Jacky and May are sharing the task of discussing life topics with the girls, including dating and sex education. As the father, Jacky is responsible for discussing the men’s point of view while May provided the female perspective.

Jacky was asked if he is worried about Zoe dating. He said it is inevitable and that he would feel less concerned if he can meet her future boyfriend face-to-face. Jacky is terrified that Zoe will experience heartbreak so he will teach her how to protect herself. “I’m most worried about her being hurt, but it probably will happen. It’s karma [on my part]”. When asked if that meant he had hurt many women in the past, Jacky laughed and said that there will be bad karma even if he had only broken one person’s heart.

When discussing his upcoming film, A Complicated Story <一個複雜故事>, Jacky was asked if he would consider trying for a son using artificial insemination, similar to his character in the movie. Jacky laughed and said that he has no plans for more children. “I never thought about the possibility of having a child artificially. I don’t want any more children. People should do different things at different stages of their lives, and not focus only on having kids.”

      Funn,
      Sex education in the USA starts as early as 3rd grade. It’s necessary with the early puberty development. Most kids are curious about dating and opposite sex early on and may start dating around 14 years old. So Jacky is a smart father to talk about it with his daughter early. Only with the proper knowledge can his daughter make the right decisions.

      Too early is better than too late. And I’m glad Aaron and May are taking up the personal responsibility, rather than leaving their daughters to the mercy of the Internet’s unmonitored values.

      Parents have to teach early because kids are exposed to sexual images everywhere.

      True, even earlier than that. Should teach them since kindergarten. Once when I was Kindergarten teacher there was a case where little boy quietly touch the other little girl “private part”. Kids curiosity for opposite sex start as early as kindergarten.

        Ita,
        You’re right, young children should be taught that their bodies belong to themselves to avoid molestation situations. But in terms of sex education, it can come in gradual doses as to what happens between a man and woman.

    I totally agree with Jacky and May’s decision to discuss these topics now rather than later. She should definitely be fully informed and I applaud them for taking this step.

    Whatever happened to teaching girls and boys that the opposite sex has cooties? That seemed to work in keeping them apart till around 5th or 6th grade.
    I hope the first thing he teaches her about boys at that age is that in relation to “dating” , they only care about themselves. That usually carries on until, if you are lucky, high school. – Most cases, much later lol.
