Japan’s Super-Moms: Who They Are and Why the Rest of the World Is So Critical of Them

In Japan, some well-off families adhere to a set of unusual parenting rules. It boils down to mothers paying the closest possible attention to their little ones’ education. At times, things border on the absurd: moms enroll 6-month-old babies in kindergartens to prepare them for school, and personally escort 17-year-olds to university exams, holding their hand all the way to the classroom. These women are called ’Kyoiku Mama’ or ’Super-Moms.’

We at Bright Side decided to find out what these ladies are hoping to achieve, what societ...

Adorable Tool-Dog is Man’s Best Assistant Who Helps Humans Fix Cars

Although dogs are traditionally known as man’s best friend, there’s one pup out there who’s earned himself a different title: man’s best assistant. Recently, an adorable Dachshund was spotted in a car repair shop wearing an interesting little outfit. On what looks like a repurposed t-shirt with a zipper running down the back are several side pockets containing simple tools. From the looks of the released photographs, the dog sits patiently by a worker as he’s fixing a car and allows him to grab the tools when they’re needed.

While it’s presumed that this shop is located in Russia, not much more is known about the circumstances. And as cute as the images seem at first, they have many concerned about the Dachshund’s vulne...

Know This Before Fostering Kitten

Fostering kitten

Raising up kittens is very much similar to bringing up children as they both need proper care and attention for their well-being. So, if you’ve recently adopted a kitten or planning to foster kittens, consider this guidance and incorporate it.

Dealing with Sleep Deprivation

Kittens need care at midnight that may disturb your sleep, so you need to be prepared for it beforehand. Prepare all formula and collect bottles to feed them instantly at midnight.

You may take the assistance of your partner or another person for kitten care at night. For instance, if you feed kittens at 12’O clock and your assistant does it at 4’O clock, you both get enough time to sleep.

How to Teach Your Child Self-Control & Delayed Gratification

Kids are notoriously terrible at waiting. Patience is just not something that comes easily to young children who want everything RIGHT NOW.

With every new piece of technology that comes out, our kids become more and more dependent on instant gratification. As a society we’ve forgotten how to stick with long-term projects and reap the rewards of our patience and hard work.

You’ve probably heard of the famous “Marshmallow Experiment” that was conducted in the 1960s. Four-year-olds were given a marshmallow and told that they could eat it right away, OR they could wait until the researcher came back after 15 minutes and get a second marshmallow.

Most of the children couldn’t wait.

Out of the few children who did wait to get a second mar...

DIY: Cool contemporary plant stand

planter and stand
This container is planted with a sun-loving combination of bromeliad, kalanchoe and false cypress ‘Sungold.”

Garden pots can be splendid on their own, but when elevated, they achieve rock star status in the garden or on the patio. Plus, the taller the pot, the greater the impact. But big pots are pricey. Building this wood plant stand helps give the illusion of a larger pot and also makes for a lighter weight set-up and an easier job of moving if needed. And depending on your plants, it can be moved indoors for the winter.

The instructions are for use with a plastic pot – 14” tall and round at its widest point – a common size and material at garden centers and other stores. The 2” cedar spindles (1 3/8” actual) used ...
