Summary

This book examines the social phenomenon in contemporary urban China where grandparents from either or both paternal and maternal lineage, together with the biological parents, revolve themselves around raising the single child who is commonly referred to as 'little sun' This endearing term denotes the high position these single children occupy in their families. The book will explain this 4-2-1 experience both from the perspectives of the multiple caregivers as well as that of the 'little suns'. It also discusses how socio-economic and political transformations at the macro scale are impacting the intergenerational dynamics within the micro family milieu.
