Traditional Chinese conception of filial piety requires grown-up children to treat their parents kindly, which means satisfying their parents’ material needs. As time goes by, the conception of traditional Chinese filial piety gradually evolves to the theory that requires grown-up children not only to treat their parents kindly, but also be obedient to them. In Guangxu Period of Qing Dynasty, the spread of Christianity in China, Taiping rebellion and westernization movement exert great influence on the connotation of traditional Chinese filial piety, which makes filial piety culture back to the track of its origin.
