Abstract  The reason for the emergence of consciousness of filial piety is that parental care could activate reciprocal filial piety. Parental care and filial piety are two supplementary phenomena caused by the same time consciousness. Phenomenology neglects consciousness of filial piety because it lacks the thinking that sees the fundamental meaning of time  in the intersection of past  and future . The consciousness of filial piety can only be really constituted by a human being s personal experience. Frustrations in personal life  and breeding of children for oneself  are two occasions for an adult to fight against the separating effect of individualized consciousness and regain awareness of filial piety.
