Sugisaki Momoko works as a caregiver for sick children. She wanted to become a nursery school teacher, but she was let go after only a year of working because she had difficulty relating with other teachers and the students' parents.

When young children have a temperature of 37.5℃ or a fever, nursery schools are required by law to send the children home. Most parents engage the services of a caregiver to watch over the sick children for a specified period of time.

37.5℃ no Namida is an interesting drama about caregivers for sick children. It talks about the challenges that people who work in the profession encounter, such as walking the fine line of caring for sick children but remaining distant and detached.

Yanagi Chikara: Please keep this in mind... Our job is to take care of sick children, not to lecture their family's policies. Don't pay attention to the children, don't scold them. Don't impose your own values on them. Those are the three principles in home care service for sick children. Please work hard without doing anything unnecessary.

There is a lot of responsibility attached when an individual is called a father or a mother. The drama points out how difficult it is to become parents of children, especially if a single parent has to assume both roles as the primary caregiver as well as the financial provider.
