7-year-old boy imitate cartoon character by jumping off a building with an open umbrella!

For those classes whom we did the question below recently, note that influence do not come from parents alone, but also from friends and the media. The one in this article is a colourful one for BANGing in your intro and conclusion, but can also feature as an example in ur elaboration. I suppose this jumping from high floor with an umbrella can be inspired by the Joker from "Batman" too, or was it the Penguin? And who can forget superman? Every kid who has watched superman probably has tried tying a large towel round their neck as a cape and jump off the bed or somewhere high! Just dont jump off a tree or building! I've read in an article last time about a kid who killed his classmate with a knife, and when probed on why he did such a ghastly thing, he replied that he thought it would be like in the cartoon he had watched on TV, where the guy who was killed "resurrected" in no time! And he had thought that the same would happen to his dead friend!

By the way, for those who can't read Chinese, the article is as the title above says -- a boy jumped off the 5th floor of a building with an open umbrella as he was trying to imitate a cartoon character.

Qn: "Parents have much influence on the lives of their children." Do you agree?
