If someone is defiant, then they are showing aggression or independence by refusing to obey someone… hmm.. that sounds like my kids! Ha ha! Funnily enough though, I’m not the only one that feels that way – if you search for the word “defiant” in Google images, 90% of the images are children in defiant poses!

So, in western culture, the adjective defiant is most commonly used to describe children, but mostly they are just learning about the world and boundaries, and what they can and cannot do. How about in Japan, is defiant a word often used when describing children?
