Taking the Tokyo University entrance exam without cram school! Child-rearing experiences of a family at the bottom of the pyramid
Inheritance of Life
Everything happens for a reason.
I always wondered about this as a child.
Why don't I have a father?"
I have two older brothers, but they are not my father.
The people who live in rented houses in the neighborhood all have cars, and on holidays the whole family goes somewhere together.
The driver is a grown man.
Yes, it's your father.
But we have no car and no father to drive.
Hey mom ...... why don't I have a dad?"
It was strange that his father was not there.
I still remember this feeling.
All of my childhood memories are painful and so deeply rooted that I can recall them vividly.
It is not possible for someone who can do nothing to suddenly become a specialist in something one day.
The accumulation of time over a long period is what shapes a person.
My favorite family
Despite the kind of existence I've become, I've never once hated or held a grudge against my father or mother.
However, there were many things I wanted my father to do and many things I wanted to do with him.
I don't care if I am poor and can't eat good food, I want to have a meal with my whole family.
I want to play outside with them, take a walk, go shopping with them, just for 5 minutes.
I want to joke around, say stupid things, and have casual conversations every day.
The topic can be anything.
It could be a pebble outside, a mountain in the distance, or a cloud in the sky.
I would like to know a lot about anything.
When I was ready, the emotion that welled up in my heart was not hatred.
It is something I have embraced since I was a child.
I love my family at all times.
No one hates their father or mother from the moment they are born.
There's always a reason for that to happen.
They would often be abused or have nothing done for them.
Children always love their parents.
No reason is needed there.
Isn't the most important thing in raising children to believe in them and treat them seriously, just as children never lie about their feelings for their parents?
The influence of parents on their children is immeasurable, and one might say that the family environment and parental education determine everything about the child.
The child is the mirror of the parent
If you raise them correctly, they will grow up correctly; if you raise them incorrectly, they will grow up in the wrong direction.
The concept of parenting is quite simple.
I know from my own experience the wrong way to raise a child.
Then the right way to raise a child is to do everything I wanted my father to do when I was a child and everything I wanted him to do when I was a child.
Doing things halfway will not stop the cycle of poverty.
You have to develop the child's abilities to the fullest and expand his or her potential so that he or she can do any job in the world.
What is done cannot be undone.
A reminder that if we don't prepare ahead of time, we will regret it.
I know painfully well what this means.
No one can teach you unless your parents, who have experienced life before you, teach you.
I have no wealth, no honor, and no assets to leave to my son.
The only thing I can give you is the 18 years we spent as father and son.
So, I will put everything I have into raising my child so that at least this child will be spared.
It's the only thing I can do for him as a father. ......
