A certain population in the US — young international students from China — has been expanding at a phenomenal pace in recent years.

Yi Bing, a media critic in the Bay Area recon she or he can't help but wonder what kind of juvenile education they received from their family and early schools.  I can say with confidence they where polite and good kids before they left China and became hostile in their new enviroment.

Parents are some degree to blame for students inability to cope on their own while in university.
the teen years are about learning how to be responsible for yourself and take control of your life, but Chinese parents control upwards of 90% of their time during middle and high school pressurising them to succeed in exams without any time for personal development and growth.
The number of times I encountered University students who ran home to their families if the had a sniffle rather than taking responsibility and behave like adults.
20 something year olds even brought fluffy toys to class! I told them it was not appropriate as it was not a playground.
if you infantilise your child during adolescence, of course they have not matured by the time they are in university.

Spoilt children grow up into spoilt adolescents. Parents are to blame.
I agree that many parents spoil their only child.
China needs to toughen up these kids.

I don't think this has anything to do with the fact that the students are in the US except perhaps having more freedoms they are not used to having.  Chinese students have been coming to the US for decades and it is only recently that this phenomenon of "hoolaganism" has been observed in Chinese students.  

It probably mostly has to do with their wealth and their belief that they are entitled and that their parents will come rescue them if they get into trouble......
