Japanese education system
Japan – mysterious country, where the sacred honor traditions and cherish the cultural heritage. The Japanese are the most organized, hardworking and law-abiding people. Perhaps this is a result of proper upbringing, which is in Japan tradition.
The Japanese system of education in the opinion of Russian parents, at least, strange. Child up to 5 years is allowed everything, his care, pet. In Japan you see the mother who calls to his young son or berating him loudly, not paying attention to the cry. A turning point in the upbringing of your child is reaching the age of five. At this time, the child enters a time of stringent restrictions, prohibitions and requirements. Such a sharp transition from childhood to adult life makes the child resistant to stress.
Permissiveness the child up to five years does not mean that the Japanese did not apply to children methods of early development. Training kids is like a game, starting from infancy. Children are taught to honor tradition, showing their full beauty on the examples of Japanese holidays. Parents by their example, show the child how to behave in society that avoids the need for correction of behavior of the baby in the future. The child simply has no one from whom to learn to behave incorrectly.
If the child’s behavior is poor, Japanese parents don’t punish him but ignore. The child, being alone with him, aware that, if you behave badly, adults alienated and isolate themselves. But such tactics are acceptable only if the rest of the time, when a child behaves well, mom or dad, always there, play with child, teach him, talk to him.
In reference to our reality, the Japanese system of education of children is not always justified, as it cannot be applied in pure form. After all, in Japan, this traditional system and society encourages such education, supporting it. The child, visiting the nursery, kindergarten or just communicating with other relatives, and perceives their behavior and attitude. So, if in Japan, the child is treated kindly, surrounded by care and attention in any group, in our country there is a possibility that the child will punish the teacher who does not accept the Japanese system of education. Then such a mixed system is unlikely to yield good fruit.
In the age of five years, the Japanese take only one right course of action, seeing the role models in all spheres of life. They have almost no opportunity to develop in a different direction. Ours, unfortunately, not so disciplined society, unable to support such child in the critical period. Six year old children do not understand why the neighbor’s kid can continue to indulge even in school, and he needs to be responsible and disciplined.
Given these factors, it is worth considering the application of the Japanese system of education of children. Perhaps if Your surrounded by enough like-minded people, You will be able to turn the situation and to raise an extraordinary child, using pedagogical achievements of the Japanese.
