Sinh con rồi mới sinh cha Sinh cháu giữ nhà rồi mới sinh ông

(The child is born before the father
The grandchild is born before the grandfather)

It sounds illogical at first.

“Sinh” means
(1) “gives birth to”,
(2) “make, create”.

The 1st meaning is used in “sinh con” and “sinh cháu”.
The 2nd meaning is used in “sinh cha” and “sinh ông”.

Men can only be called father when their child has been born and grandfather when their grandchild has been born.
