"Kyoiku mama" and its role in Japan

In Japan there is a term "Kyoiku mama" or mother of education. In the past, the mothers in Japan on average does not work, but only to educate and take care of their children from getting out of bed, went to school and come home from school, courses, tutoring, to sleep again, all under the instruction of the mother.

Kyoiku mama teaches courtesy, cleanliness, obedience and passion to their children. Most Kyoiku mama is a bachelor degree or master degree. They pursue higher education instead of career and work outside the home but to "educate children", and at that time to educate children is the highest career for a Japanese woman.

According to the history of Japan, the progress of Japan's economic is caused by Kyoiku mama who instilled a lot of great character into the younger generation of Japan, so the Japanese have discipline and work ethic are higher than other nations in the world.

Currently, Japan is promoting the term "Ryousai kenbo". Ryousai means that a good wife and wise mother Kenbo means. With this term Japan intends to realize the harmonious and ideal family, where a woman acting as a good wife and wise mother.

The essence of this slogan is to return the role of women to the honored role which suitable with their nature as a good wife and wise mother. Japan wants to place women as interior minister and domestic motivators in the household while place men as foreign minister, motivator, adequate logistics and public affairs.

Today, most Japanese women choose single woman and became a career woman than to be a wife and mother, so that the presentation of young productive age population growth in the country is declined.

In addition, at this time Japan had increased cases of youth violence and suicide at the age of school due to non-fulfillment of the quality of the relationship between mother and child that support children's emotional growth.

That is why the Japanese are very giving place of honor on the role of a wife and homemaker quality, because the progress of the nation of Japan in the future depends on the quality housewife wise as forming the character qualities of their children.

It is remarkable, "housewife is ideal profession" in Japan.
