Child rearing

Child rearing

  • Families are very close. Most often grandparents will continue to live with the family.

  • While the children are still young, many families will live in small apartments. When the children get older the family will move to a larger place.

  • It is the mother’s job to take care of the children’s schooling .

  • Japanese children are “spoiled” more than American children. This is because Americans are more independent and raise their child to be independent as well.
