In China it is a tradition that the elderly parents live with their children. My mother-in-law is 92 and she usually lives with my sister-in-law. However about 10 days ago my sister-in-law had a car accident and broke a rib. So my husband fetched his mother from his hometown. It’s now my responsibility to look after her as my husband is busy working all day. I cooked special meals for her because her teeth were gone and I bought clothes for her as autumn has come and the temperatures became low. Also I taught her how to use the romote control to turn on TV. Anyway I did my best to look after her. Nevertheless my mother-in-law is not satisfied. She said she was going to take the train to go back to the hometown because she was bored all day. We asked her how you were able to look after yourself. She said she was going to hire a maid. My husband said we could not afford a maid as we are on a mortgage.
So it is a dilemma for us.
