Traveling around the world with children.
That’s very catchy phase, isn’t!?
I went to a shrine to hear a report of traveling the world with 2 years daughter. I’ve taken part in some events which threw by teacher who went over the world. But It was the first time its with child. There’re interesting view points from mom’s perspective.
They’re a wonderful parents. One day dad said ｢The one of my dream’s been traveling around the world. Why don’t we make it??｣ out of blue(according to mom’s side).Mom also said ｢I’ve been thinking visiting nursery school in Europe」They made a plan together and finally made it happen.
After hearing their stories, I’ve found a strength of social community to bring up children in another countries.
Japanese generally get a reputation as “kind” “polite”. But I guess our public rules make us like that and some of them don’t do anything to help other spontaneously. It’s different from volunteer spirit. On the other hands, I felt positive energy to interact with and help others from another countries they visited.
Locals took care of her daughter on the street. A girl happen to meet on the bus taught her counting「one,two, three.....ten!!」and she’s acquired it while they were traveling. One guy naturally helped mom out to carry stroller.Other girl did gymnastics in the park, the daughter saw her and said 「I wanna do it too!!』She ended up making forward roll well.
How great affect between children is.
Last part of the event,one of participant who has two kids said (sometimes I scold my kids like performance. Cause the kids’ behavior stands for mom’s behavior, so if they act out in public, people’ll see me like bad mom. If I could, I’d like to put my kids in like that community. I’ll be able to be more myself too.)
I’ll keep it in my mind.
