China: Good Manners: Leaving Food Uneaten


Here we have exactly the opposite way of thinking as that of a Christian society.
Christians were raised to feel that food uneaten is wasteful, therefore the children should gobble up everything until they are satiated.
I have always felt uncomfortable watching parents force young kids to eat food that they do not want to eat.  As though the kids were just being bad.
The Chinese hosts want you to eat until you are full of food as well, and to their way of thinking that means there will be at least a little food left-over on your plates or on the dinner table.
