In Japan, children generally sleep with their parents, especially with their mothers. The aim of this study is to make clear the mother's consciousness that stems from the habit of sleeping. I applied two methods of psychology, advanced repertory grid technique and sand play therapy, to my study. As a result, it becomes clear that a mother makes much of her relation with her children and wants to bring up them equally. Her ideal is for all the members of the family to sleep in the same room,
