Xu Bin’s Birthday Present To His Son, Who Just Turned 2, Is To Send Him To School
The 31-year-old actor, who stars in new Mediacorp drama A Quest To Heal, jokes that his son Ethan is now "resigned to his fate".
Most parents would give their kid toys for their birthday. Xu Bin, on the other hand, decided that he’d start his son Ethan, who turned two on July 10, in preschool just days after the boy's birthday. You know, as a gift.
“It’s good for him to make friends, learn things from the teachers, and learn to be independent,” the 31-year-old actor explained to 8days.sg over the phone. “Attending school is something like a 'birthday present' to him as he'll learn a lot from it. I had friends telling me that it would be difficult to leave him there, and that I had to be hard-hearted and just do it. He cried for two hours on the first day that he went to school, but afterwards, the teachers sent us photos of him having a good time.”
