Taking the Tokyo University entrance exam without cram school! Child-rearing experiences of a family at the bottom of the pyramid
Freedom and hardship
Time to make life choices
When is the end of parenting?
A time when you can make your own life choices based on your own ideas and with your own responsibility
It would be appropriate when they can make a firm decision on this, but normally the first choice would be to take the high school entrance exam.
However, as a junior high school student whose goal was to write "high school graduate" in the final education section of my resume, I was not in a position to make the right decision.
The age of junior high school students is still immature, and few of them will be able to act with an eye on their own lives.
From my own experience.
The choice is Age to take the college entrance exam
In other words, 18 would be the most appropriate age.
The final education field is determined by you for your future self.
My role is to give them the ability to choose any university they want, without me as a parent needing to think about it.
For financial reasons, overseas universities and private schools are not possible, but we should give them the choice of any public university in Japan. ......
The end of my parenting career is my son's college entrance exams.
Once this point is determined, all that remains is to push toward it, but this is easier said than done.
The idea of any public university in Japan includes the University of Tokyo, which even I know only by name.
Is it a place where people like us, who live in an environment like ours, can enter?
Well, now. There's no point in thinking about it, so let's instead think about how we should live each day.
the easy way
There is a word for this: hardship.
The words that come to mind are "painful, hard, and difficult.
It's a really nasty word for me, a massive hard-earned existence.
In life, some things are strongly associated with hardship [work, illness, money, living, and study].
All of these things are a part of everyone's life from birth to death.
Because life is not something that can be completely controlled, it is inseparable from hardship.
Hardship" does not mean only hard and painful difficulties,
to strive mentally and physically to make things work out.
It also means "to work hard in the face of adversity or hardship.
It can also mean "work hard in the face of adversity.
As I have done in the past, people want to run away from things that cause them pain, and they want to find the easy way out.
However, this society is not designed to live only by taking the easy way out.
The more you run, the more you avoid, the thicker and higher the invisible wall that looms in front of you becomes, and the harder it becomes to overcome.
No one can escape from struggling.
That is why we have to overcome the small hardships that lie ahead of us to avoid major hardships.
It takes money to make a good living, and it also costs money to get sick and see a doctor.
To get that money, you have to work, and you need to be able to do that whether you get hired by some company or start your own business.
Simply put, the only hardship that should be given to them from a young age is learning.
Give them age-appropriate hardships, and give them different experiences to get them through.
Once it becomes a habit, it will not feel hard or painful but will be recognized as one of the daily activities.
However, if left to the child alone, he or she may stumble over a small stone and fall behind.
So, we don't overlook even the slightest change and nurture them carefully.
I'll run alongside you to lighten the child's burden as much as possible, and we'll take every possible action together.
I can shoulder all the responsibility.
I can take all the headwinds.
We have to endure and endure and endure.
In the meantime, we can grow little by little, step by step, without fail.
Only those who have struggled for freedom can have real freedom. ......
