"In parts of China, when someone grows up and starts earning money their first pay check goes to their parents. I’d love to do that because I like that idea of showing gratitude. Then, when your parents retire they move in and take care of your children.  I really like the idea of being a lot closer to your family. I don’t think I could imagine either of those things happening here- I have got a lot of things that I want to do myself and my parents moving in with me just doesn’t fit that. I want to be able to leave that space in the future blank."
