Children made dumplings with teachers to celebrate Winter Solstice in Linyi

Stay-at-home children made dumplings with their teachers in celebration of the Winter Solstice or Dongzhi at school in Tancheng county, Linyi city, east China’s Shandong province on December 21. 

Stay-at-home children, namely the children remaining in rural areas, are a special juvenile group. Facing with the long absence of their parents who leave their rural hometown to work in cities, the children left behind in the countryside "empty nests" are forced to learn to live in a quite independent and self-disciplined way. Teachers in rural schools therefore undertake responsibilities for the stay-at-home children in many aspects of daily life.
