blog title 「居場所」と「絆」|Nobody Can Live Completely Alone June 23, 2008

今、この本が、私の心の本棚のすごく目立つ所にあります。
今年2月に、5年生(今の小6世代)に朝の読み聞かせで読んだのですが、私の中ではフィクションで収まってませんでした。
群れの1羽がきつねに襲われて死んだことを非難されて、悲しみのあまり飛べなくなってしまった鶴の話なんですが・・・
「人は”自分が一人ぼっちゃじゃない”と気づくと、力がわいてくるものなんだなあ」
ってことを教えてくれます。

このお話、基本的にはハッピーエンディングです。
-----が!!!!
今の芝山には、個人的に非常~~~~~~~~に重たいんです。


Since last autumn, my elder daughter has more of her weekdays staying at home.
She says that she won't go to school because she has got so uninteresting in studying the classes seems no use for her.
My godmother advised her one day, "You study more even if you stay home all day. Studying will make the classes more interesting."
And she told ME to LEAD her to study......

When she advises something to my daughters, she encourages them ordinarily at first. But if they rebel to her, she commands me to lead them to obey her!!!
The mother is the key to good children---she may believe in her subconscious, which she never tries to face.

It has been six months since my elder daughter became an "absentee".
My mother thinks studiousness will solve her problems, and my husband supposes her uncommunicative personality may be her obstacles to her school life.

I always wonder where my elder daughter's hopeless way of thinking comes from and consult various kinds of specialists about it, they give me very severe facts.
My 13 year-old daughter sometimes mumbles her current feelings to me, which I think are some of her true feelings.

I consider their words, and become sometimes horrible, sometimes desperate, and totally, at a loss.
That's why I need third party's opinions.
But she despises me consulting specialists about her. She says she feels as if I revealed my family's secrets to others to make her feel isolated...

These days I often recall the book "Kaze Kiru Tsubasa(風切る翼)" by Yuichi Kimura I read to fifth graders in class in February, whenever I see them playing or reading comic books together.
But my younger daughter rather rejects to act "the friend crane" so far.
Who can become my elder daughter's "friend crane"? Maybe he/she is the savior to my family!!!

blog title 水戸のスーパーはエコに生ぬるいのか???| How To Reduce Plastic Bag Wasting June 15, 2008

----いや、厳しいとこが半端なく厳しいの。

スーパーで何も言わないと、袋が出ないのが普通!!!!!!
袋欲しい時は、1枚当たり3円払って、もらうの。

でも、「袋ください」言うの、すごく勇気要る店の雰囲気。

カチーン、コチーーーン


Most supermarkets in Mito give us a two or three yen discount if we bring our own bags and claim we don't need plastic bags.
They also sell big bags made of nylon or canvas, which are to reduce our plastic bag use.

But supermarket plastic bags are still seen everywhere in Mito.
Some thoughtful people go shopping with their own bags though.
Why can't we reduce plastic bag use even if we get a discount?

I found one of the answer when I happened to go to a supermarket in Kasama.

Major supermarkets in Kasama have quitted giving plastic bags to customers in cooperation these days!!

It was amazing to see most customers brought their own bags.
Customers without their own bags were very rare and were charged three yen for one plastic bag if they claimed them.
It looked like a fine to me...

Is Kasama strict?
Or is Mito lazy?

Anyway, I think Kasama's way is more effective for reducing plastic bag wasting.
Nobody wants to pay extra for everyday shopping!!

blog title 生身のペットと仮想ペット | Real Pets & Digital Pets June 12, 2008

I have enjoyed aquarium for six years.
Now I have some tropical fish and shrimps.
They heal me and cheer me up a lot, despite I'm too busy to take good care of them sometimes.

When keeping tropical fish, we should know that they need less hot water than we imagine.
They can't live in hot water around 30°C in summer in Japan, comparing that goldfish can survive in 30°C water.
So tropical fish keepers have to cool their fish tanks with fans or set their tanks in air-conditioned rooms.

I also have some digital pets for fun, which I enjoy on my blogs.
Some of my online friends have the same kinds of pets as mine, it's fun to find that my friends resister the same digital pet providers as me.

My two daughters have their digiral pets too, but I doubt that my elder daughter's enthusiasm for digital pets is acceptable.
She logs onto her digital pet providers' web pages every day, this is not that peculiar a thing itself.
What vexes me is her attitude toward her digital pets; she never forgets logging onto her digital creatures EVEN when she is absent from school!!!
Now she is out for school trip to Hokkaido, but she was so worried if her pets might have been dead while she was in Hokkaido.
She even resisted joining school trip maybe just for taking care of her pets every day.

I had to promise that I would take care of her pets during her absence.
That feels a kind of peculiar!!!
It's harder than I expected logging onto digital pets' web sites every day, for every one of us has such hectic days that we don't have time to boost our PCs.
Still she asked me to do that.
It seems to me that digital pets and real pets are the same living creatues for her.

The day before yesterday, I logged onto only "Livly Island".
Yesterday I didn't use a PC. I updated some of my blogs with my cell phone though.
So.........

I broke my promise to logged onto "Meromero Park" every day!!!!!!!

Even though it's not a kind of promise I have to keep, I'm so scared.......
I have broken her dream.......

I'm sooooooooooooooo sorry, if you never forgive me, I'll say it many times.
But.....remember:

Live your life in the real world!!!

Digital pets like livlies and meromeros live in a parallel world, your "happy times" with games, mangas, digital pets etc. are going by in a parallel world where only a few people believe in.
In a parallel world on the net, you are mere a piece of data.
In the real world, you are the one full of possibility.

Are you still satisfied with ending up your life just as a piece of data?

You are not data.
You are man!!!!

blog title TOEIC DS、改訂さる | TOEIC Test DS Training Renewal June 7, 2008


The second edition of "TOEIC Test DS Training" will be released on June 12.
If we get it online from Amazon in the first few days, a prep test PC software will come to us too.
And it's cheaper than the previous one!!!

I thought I would not buy Nintendo DS softwares this year in the beginning of this year , but it really attracts me a lot.
I may prepare enogh for TOEIC test with iKnow and other materials, Nintendo DS softwares seem effective to motivate us.
I wonder I will buy the new software...

blog title 目指す生徒像とノーマライゼーション | Thinking of School Slogans June 5, 2008

今日、始業に間に合うために、上の娘はほとんど一睡もせずに過ごしました。
眠れなかったようです。
眠らないででも、始業に間に合わねば・・・・・・と思ったのかもしれません。

胸が痛みます。
娘の「自分の時間割」と学校の時間割のギャップに・・・


My elder daughter went to school on time today.
It's not a special thing though, but today she arrived at school on time for the first time this year.

Since she was diagnosed with OD and adjustment disorders last autumn, she has been living a very selfish life.
She gets so angry when she is told to get up, but she remains in bed as long as she likes if there is no one to wake her up.
She doesn't feel she is resisting her school rules, saying "I'm just doing what I want. Is it wrong???"
She sometimes feels embarrassed when she sleeps in, but she never hurries to school.
She reluctantly goes to school very late, or she chooses to stay at home when she is embarrassed about being late.

I already told teachers that my daughter has become idle and self-centered because of her mental diseases, but it's also true, sadly, that her selfish attitude at school may reduce students' motivations.
I was scolded by my mother yesterday that I had to do my very best to arrange her happy school life though.

Should public schools accept any kinds of students who want to enter and absentees who want to stay resistered?
A few decades ago, I heard some handicapped students in junior high who were allowed to enter public schools and helped by whole students and teachers there.
But I don't think junior high students and teachers have enough time and energy to help only a few students with handicaps or trouble altogether.
They are too busy to manage themselves.
All of us must stand on our feet!!
