The China National Children's Center (CNCC) released a research report on "The Construction of a Family Education Guidance System" in Beijing on June 19, planning to promote instruction services for parents in educating children.

At the launch meeting, Cong Zhongxiao, secretary of the Party committee of CCNC, introduced the details of the report and pointed out that the establishment of a standard system in this field is an inevitable trend across China.

The report indicates a basic framework for the guidance system, which is based on an analysis of the current situation. Cong stressed that China has to formulate laws to maintain the rationality of the system. Meanwhile, the government should bring the family education guidance service into public service system and further cultivate social organizations to improve the management of those instruction institutions for parents and specify their missions.

Moreover, Cong advocated for officials to pay attention to establishing teacher hiring mechanisms, providing professional pre-job training for them.

Xie Weihe, vice-chairperson of the China Family Education Institute emphasized the importance of the report for its systematic construction, which helps parents avoid confusion from various concepts of family education in society.

In addition, Cong emphasized parents' participation in family education, which is a lifelong learning process. "It is not enough to organize lectures. We need focus on improving parents' abilities to educate their children, establishing courses that suit adults' ways of learning and making full use of their free time online and offline," said Cong.
