My mother’s ideal daughter

Preppy girl

My mother wanted to make me a preppy.

Actually she had made me enter a private school from elementary to high school.

She could not go to school in spite of the fact her brothers were going there since WW2. At that time parents put boys above girls to go to school.

Piano as well

“Be girlish!”

My mother has been saying often and even now she still says, “Be girlish!” to me. When I was child, rice refills had a limit of 3 times.

Because eating a lot doesn't look good and is not girlish.



Many enrichment lessons

She thinks these lessons must be adopted by her ideal daughter.

The Japanese tea ceremony - The first time when I learned it I was in Kindergarten. I could not understand why almost every hand movement was prescribed, even walking! I ran away from lessons after a few times.The Japanese tea ceremony certificate


The flower arrangement- But I dislike cutting flowers a lot. It seems cruel! I stopped going to these lessons too.

The Japanese traditional dance - Indeed I love it but it was too expensive. I stoppped as well.

The Japanese harp - I have a basic certificate but I can’t play it at all!!

piano Piano as well

(However I think the tea ceremony lessons were necessary for me. Studying it, I silently understood why Japanese company and family structures have been made like this. So I have started to study it again. Another entry show you what the tea ceremony is for me. if you like, please have a look.)


The first break in my life

I think I have tried to be my mother’s ideal daughter until last year.

However, once I did oppose her request when I was a high school student.

After my graduating high school, she recommended me to go to 2 yearswomen’s college.

According to her, women should have lower educationthan men, otherwise it is hard to find a husband.

However, I was keen on going to a 4 year university or college.

Because I wanted to become an office worker at a big company and get a good salary as much as I could, so I could rise a child by myself.

Why I thought like this is because my father died, but thanks to my mother, I could keep going to my private school, although it is common that woman became housewife in Japan.

Becoming a good salary office worker is necessary to graduate a 4 year school. Which university you graduate from is impotent to our entering a company and our subsequent life. The higher university you graduate from, the higher salary you can get.

Therefore the competition to get into good schools makes the Japanese over-concerned about our status and prestige.
