Boarding school for toddlers in China

This seems gruesome to me. It can only lead to abandonment issues. The noise of the children in the radio documentary, crying at bedtime in the night, broke my heart.
They say it builds independent children, but we know, in psychology, that children need a strong parental bond in order to succeed ant to fly away as adults.

I'm sure there will be a price to pay in later years for those affluent enough to afford the $1000 per month costs.
