Jordan Chan Discusses His Parenting Style
After taking part in season five of the popular Where Are We Going, Dad? <爸爸去哪兒> variety show, Jasper Chan, son of Jordan Chan (陳小春) and Cherrie Ying (應采兒), has become a sensation among Chinese media and viewers. Along with having his own fan base now, Jasper’s newfound recognition has also boosted the popularity of his father.
Currently, Jordan is busy preparing for his upcoming concert, which is set to start on May 5, 2019 at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing. At a recent event, Jordan was asked whether he would have his five-year-old son make a guest appearance on stage. Perhaps afraid that all the limelight will affect Jasper’s upbringing and childhood, Jordan will not have his son join him on stage.
Jordan, who often exudes an air of authority and straightforwardness, discussed his parenting style. On his thoughts about letting his son grow up freely and independently, Jordan said, “Letting go is also a form of love. The love my wife and I give to our son has always leaned towards encouraging independence and not imposing restrictions. We hope Jasper can become a responsible and dependable man. We believe that letting go and giving him more freedom can help him become more independent. That is why we encourage him to deal with his own matters and dilemmas. As parents, we try not to cave in and easily help him resolve things. Through this parenting method, we realized that he really is better able to deal with his own problems.”
The 51-year-old entertainer feels that it is important to expose Jasper to nature and the outdoors, believing it would help tap into Jasper’s potential. At a young age, Jasper was encouraged to explore outside and discover the world.
