Noun. From Japanese.
“A mother who relentlessly pushes her child or children to excel in education and knowledge”
Many speak of the education systems in eastern Asia and, arguably, how kids tend to develop a greater capacity for learning at an earlier age. Perhaps it’s the doing of the kyouikumama?
This is quite a huge cultural aspect in Japan specifically. A lot of people are against the idea of the kyouikumama as the social and physical well-being of the child could suffer. There’s a huge Wikipedia article about it here with many reference links at the bottom if you’re interested in this phenomenon.
