When her five-year-old son passed the rigorous entrance exams to one of Japans top private elementary schools, Makihara, a single mother, thought they were on their way. Taro would wear the historic dark blue uniform and learn alongside other little Einsteins while she basked in the glory of his high achievements with the other perfect moms. Together they would climb the rungs into the countrys successful elite. But it didnt turn out that way. Taro had other things in mind.While set in Japan, their struggles in the schools hyper-competitive environment mirror those faced by parents here in the US and raise the same questions about the best way to educate a childespecially one that doesnt quite fit the mold. Public or private? Competitive or nurturing? Standardized or individualized. Helicopter parenting or free-range? Amid this frenzied debate, how does one find balance and maintain a healthy parent-child relationship?Dear Diary Boy is an intensely personal, heartwarming, and heartbreaking chronicle of one mother and childs experience in a prestigious private Tokyo school. Its a tale that will resonate with all parents as we try to answer the age-old questions of how best to educate our children and what, truly, is in their best interests versus what is in our own.
