    both way

    Dear teachers,
    Please read the following:
    If you have young children, send them to a friend’s home, and offer to host playtime another day. “It works both ways.”
    Could you please kindly explain what both refers to?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    It's basically the Confucian concept of shu or mutuality, the need to give as much as you take, to listen as much as you speak, to help as much as you are helped.
