Abstract
Richard Stuart Linklateris an American independent film director and scenarist. It takes almost 12 years for him to make a feature film called Boyhood, which mainly talks about a little boy Mason's growth experiences from 6 to 18 years old. Throughout the film, American parents' educational methods to their growing children can be regarded as a model of concepts of family education, from which our Chinese parents should learn. Democracy,independence,respects and interests are the keywords in this movie.Parents should respect children's personality and talent, trust them, listen to children patiently and entitle them more autonomy. Paying attention to and encouraging them to think independently are equally essential to the children. Based on the examples and analysis from this movie, the paper finds out advantages of American family education,which will cast enlightenment on Chinese family education.
