In JJP 181, host Kevin O’Shea chats with returning guest Brian Waters about being a parent in Japan. They talk about the cultural differences between Canada, America, and Japan in school and with regards to raising children. The pressure put on mothers with school PTO’s, after school studying (juku) and future education plans. When you move from another country to Japan and decide to start a family, things can get really interesting and surprising when your kids start school!
