xiao 孝 (filial piety), which consists of reverent, sincere, self-sacrificing, and unconditional care for one’s parents while they are alive and after their death, is one of the basic values of Chinese traditional culture and the basis for the development of the moral person in Confucian ethics. Confucius describes filial piety and reiterates for its importance in creating a peaceful family and society in his book, Xiao Jing, also known as Classic of Xiao. The text was written in 4th-century BCE, showing how filial piety has been a part of Chinese values for a very long time.

However, what does it mean to be filial in the 21st century? How does being filial looked like in the present as compared to the past?

There is no doubt that the concept of filial piety has a significant influence over parenting and parent-child relationship. Parents are concerned that the children today do not practice acts of filial piety despite their constant teaching. Children, on the other hand, are questioning their obedience to parent’s wishes when they are not respected by their parents.

This 2-day camp will take on an active and critical learning approach for both parents and children to rethink what it means to be filial in the 21st century. Using different stimuli and a variety of drama strategies, we aim to inspire respectful, mutual and meaningful discussions with parents and children to explore and establish a shared understanding and practice of filial piety that are essential even today.
