在中国，尊老爱幼是中华民族的优秀传统。早在汉朝时期(the Han Dynasty)，政府就曾多次颁布法令，提倡并奖励孝敬老人的行为。中国人以爱、教育、友善和严格的方式对待子孙后代，体现了强烈的道德责任感。尊老爱幼的传统在现代社会得以发扬光大。现在，中国的老人和儿童都有法定的假期—老人节(Elders’ Day)和儿童节。除此之外，政府还颁布特定的法律保护妇女儿童，法律也明确规定中国公民有义务赡养父母、抚养子女。
It is a fine tradition in China to respect the old and love the young. As early as the Han Dynasty, the government issued laws many times to advocate and reward behavior relating to treating the old with respect. The Chinese people treat their offspring with love and education, with kindness and strictness, embodying a strong sense of moral responsibility. The tradition of respecting the old and taking care of the young has been carried forward in modern times. At present, the old and the young in China have their own legal holidays—Elders’ Day and Children’s Day. Besides, the government has issued specific laws to protect women and children; and some laws also stipulate in explicit terms that Chinese citizens have obligations to take care of parents and raise children.
