A message like this from her father arrives almost once a week on a smartphone of a city official in Tohoku district. She always tells him that she can't help her family in the event of an emergency. Even when the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, she immediately entered relief activities and couldn't take care of her family for four days. However, I hear the thoughtfulness that "she has an important job, so she should leave her family alone until over" from this message. The stable point over family relationship is different between families.
