In a classroom of a secondary school in Beijing, most students are deeply moved to tears while they are watching a video of childbirth, captured at hospital by another student. Having never imagined the diffi culty and physical suff ering of a mother, the students are amazed with joy when the small new life starts crying loudly on the vivid screen (Yuan Wang, 2004). After the lesson, these adolescents started making sense of their lives and understanding the meaning of respecting their parents and valuing the lives of others. Copyright © 2014 Taylor & Francis.
