Is it normal for a Chinese parent to spend $10k on their son, seemingly to try to make up for having been a **** parent?
Now, my friend went with her bf and his mom to China for a trip, and they have both recieved some well filled red envelopes, and expensive gifts as they have gone shopping with the dad at least twice in the first couple of days. I'm talking a total amount of like 10 grand, altogether.
Is this normal? Or should I be worried? They seem to be taking it a bit jokingly, including the mother who thinks it's just fair and square of the dad to pay up after being an asshole. But in my world it's a little bit too crazy to just carelessly spend ten thousand dollars on their child and the child's girlfriend, in the span of a few days. I assume he must have a pretty prestigious job, but I realized I never thought to ask my friend about it.
Thanks for your help :)
