I heard the following proverb that was said from Japanese (if not Chinese).

If our parents are working too hard, our life becomes very convenient up to a point that causes their grandchildren become beggars.

Is there such a proverb in Japanese? If yes, what is that?

But more famous sayings with similar moral are:

  • すごい、1つも知らなかったです…w
