‘Tiger Mom’ Helps Her Son Become an English Translator
Liguan Yanping, 28, was born in Southwest China’s Chongqing. He weighed only 1.4 kilogram and later was diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy due to his preterm delivery.
Thanks to the perseverance and firm training from his mother Guan Ping, Liguan has achieved much that once seemed impossible.
Now he is an English translator.
Cerebral palsy is caused by abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance and posture. Patients often have poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles and tremors. They may also have problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking.
There are about six million people with this disorder in China, according to the China Disabled Persons’ Federation.
