It was reported that some workplace in Shanghai allows parents to bring their kids to work as a way to show care and humanitarianism, however, some others worry if kids could be properly looked after at busy working environment.
The pressure of the working class in China is always cornerd with the also the pressure of family care.

What do you think?

If the company is big and there is space, a kiddy-corner to take care of the children of their employees while the parents work can be considered. But this will require a proper budget; besides it can be a distraction to the employee if the child asks for the mother while she is working. For most companies which anyway are much smaller and tighter, better keep it simple to leave the child for home care, and keep the workplace a place for work only.

The bigger matter is whether it is time to adopt some western, neo-scandinavian social system of support now when there are still the seventy million in need of better job opportunities. Better to save the budget and give them proper jobs to earn a living to close the gap more inclusively with the others who have climbed the rung somewhat.

Of course that itself will throw up the other challenge of organizing for more productivity from a bigger workforce but then again who ever said commercial management is easy?

This is not a good idea in China. Parents will definitely loose concentration on work and use company time for child care. That is not fair to the company. However, if the company hires nannies to take care of the employees' children at the work place, parents can concentrate on work and also feel at ease knowing that the children are being taken of. The cost of hiring the nannies can be negotiated between the company and the parents.

It's good in a degree .. Parents should raise their child and spend more time with them not leaving them to their grandparents ..
