Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the role of Japanese wives in the overseas transfer process in the care of young children and in their children's education during the assignment in the United Kingdom (UK). It shows how fathers contribute relatively little to the daily practicalities of raising of young pre-school children, but that they are often more involved in the education of older children than they would be in Japan. Despite the very real concerns about education of their children when living in the UK, an assignment overseas can present the opportunity for Japanese fathers to share both the work load and pleasures involved, which can be to the advantage of the husband, wife and family relationship as a whole. Japanese mothers in the UK often find themselves free from many of the tasks that befall them as a kindergarten mother in Japan.

Keywords: children's education; Japanese wives; kindergarten mother; United Kingdom (UK)
