The personal learning network for educators

The educational system in Japan.

The education of the individual in early childhood is extremely soft, children usually are not prohibited anything, and the most severe punishment - to hear a warning or disapproval of the mother if the actions of the child are dangerous or hurt the mother. Fundamentals of education in Japanese society - is being extremely friendly to the people around and in public places. Both at home and in the kindergarten a lot of time is devoted to the assimilation of manners, rituals, polite expressions. Other Japanese parents may threaten their child that they will exchange with the neighbors who have wonderful children. These traditions help nurture obedience from an early age.

The child is willing to do whatever he wants up to 5-6 years. Further Education becomes more severe, there are high demands in the kindergarten and at school. Parents start to communicate with a child as with equal one after 15 years.

It all starts with the family.

Fundamentals of education are laid in the family. Due to the traditions of the education in Japan children are not accepted to the kindergarten in the young age. Of course, there are establishments that accept children from the year, but parents need to justify the inability to raise a child up to 3 years at home. Typically, Japanese mothers work a few hours a day, and the father is completely absorbed in the life of the firm and pays attention to the child only on the weekends.

Among Japan's kindergartens distinguished elite gardens at prestigious universities, and getting there is considered to be the greatest happiness. Parents are willing to pay huge amounts of money for admission. The further way of these children is already predetermined, the admission to the university is guaranteed . But these are very small amount of such institutions.

Ordinary kindergartens also offer classes, but their main task is to teach a child to be part of a team.
A lot of time is devoted to choral singing, applied arts, sports games and games in groups. Interesting traditions of education, unfamiliar to us - a complete lack of comparisons and competition between children. It does not emit the most gifted children and encourage leaders. The main tasks to be solved by education of the individual - learn to work in a group, live collective interests.

The worst punishment for a young Japanese man is contradistinction him to the group. "If you don't do so, children won't want to be friends with you" - this is the worst thing for a child to hear as the entire life he had been taught to obey the team.

Boys and girls.

Traditions of education of boys and girls differ in Japanese society. Son is the support of the family. In Japan, it is believed that man has nothing to do in the kitchen, this is the cause of women. But the boys are supposed to attend various clubs and activities after school , which is not fit for girls.
