From the Austrian Times :

It’s pre-school childcare - Chinese style.

Dad Chen Chuanliu has told how he chains his two-year-old son to a tree while he’s working because he can’t afford a nursery place for him.

The rickshaw cyclist, from the Chinese capital Beijing, decided to put tot Lao Lu under lock and key after his four-year-old daughter Ling went missing last month.

Child snatching is rife in China where strict laws govern the size of families.

“My wife is ill and I can’t stop work. So I chain him to a pole when I have a fare. It seems harsh but it is better than losing him,” said Chen.

If my parents had thought they could have gotten away with it, they’d have chained me to a tree every day too.
