Raising Your Child Using Japanese #18
Asking a Favor/Giving a Command/ Cleaning

By Nao H. Kauffman

When you are raising your child, you encourage your child to be more independent by naturally showing them what you can do for them. Children quickly learn that what you are doing for them makes their life smoother and safer. In the meantime, you let them try things you have showed and taught them, and are reassured how fast your child is growing up. Then, the little help and mutual communication means a lot to your life as a supportive family. Here are some useful phrases you may encounter in your daily life. These can be helpful to learn at your work, a friend’s house or most any place. Let’s learn these in Japanese.
