It is up to the parents which type of education they choose for their children. A father from China, who likes to be called "Eagle Dad," has already made the choice.

He likes "Eagle Education." This type of education is very hard. It says that a child can exercise his body and mind only under hard conditions.

The father once made his five year old son exercise outside in his underwear when it was -13°C (8.6°F). The most recent activity that the son did is fly a plane. He flew a plane at 1,000 feet (305 metres) without any help. And he's just five years old.

Difficult words: eagle (big and strong bird which eats other animals), condition (situation).
