This paper examines the relationship between the learning attitudes of middle and high school students and their parents' educational attitudes using the 2018 Parent and Child Survey on Children's Life and Learning (the Social Science Japan Data Archive, Center for Social Research and Data Archives, Institute of Social Science, The University of Tokyo). The results reveal that parents' attitudes toward their children have a positive effect on their children's learning awareness, as do parents' investment in the future and high expectations as well as their English and practical skills. In particular, investment in the future and high expectations affect children's learning awareness in high-pressure situations.
