박임순: 소통은 회복이다

자녀의 학교성적을 중요시하는 사회에서 부모와 자녀간의 대화는 쉽지 않다. 박임순은 이러한 현실을 박차고 나오면서 부모와 자녀가 각각 독립해야 하고 또 소통해야 한다는 깨달음을 얻는다.

Meaningful interaction between parents and children is not easy and simple, especially in Korean society where most of the parents weigh too much importance on children’s academic achievement at school. Imsoon Park made a tough decision to escape this reality. She has learned that parents and children should be independent, but communicate and interact with each other.
