Hello everyone! I am Hao, the research student in our empowerment lab.
The temperature has plummeted these days, and I wish you can take good care
of yourselves.
In December 14th, Professor Watanabe and Ms. Suzuki gave us two wonderful lectures
about childcare.
Professor Watanabe explained the factors related to child abuse and how to reduce it to
us. Professor Watanabe firstly introduced two cohort data she used, childcare cohort
data and regional cohort data.
Professor Watanabe used childcare cohort data from 1999 to 2016 to analyze the
18-year trend of childcare and the factors related to child abuse risk, and she used
regional cohort data to examine the factors to reduce childcare difficulties.
From these two studies, the following conclusions were found. Factors of caregivers
such as childcare difficulties, and social factors such as economic hardships
and single-parent households increase the risk of child abuse.
And support by partners, childcare consultation, childcare cooperation and
appropriate support provided by supporting centers can reduce this risk.
Based on the present situation that there are a number of caregivers
who have difficulties with childcare, further support for caregivers is required.
Therefore, at the end of the lecture,
Professor Watanabe made several suggestions for the support to caregivers.
And the keywords of these suggestions are equal positions, shared purpose and
mutual respect.

Ms. Suzuki gave us a lecture on child-rearing generation empowerment.
At first, Ms. Suzuki shared her own experience of pregnancy,
childbirth and child-rearing. And from these experiences, Ms. Suzuki
thought about child-rearing support which is required.
To deal with anxiety and difficulties during these three stages,
it is important to solve physical difficulties and eliminate psychological uneasiness.
And for child-rearing, empowerment support and the adjustment
to work-life balance are also required. Next, Ms. Suzuki introduced child-rearing
neubora center in Ichihara City to us. This center aims to improve the quality
of life of pregnant women, infants and children, provide a good living environment
for them and make Ichihara City be the city where people want to birth and
grow children.
It need understand actual conditions of pregnant women and infants,
provide necessary information, advice and health guidance concerning pregnancy,
childbirth and child-rearing, develop support plans and coordinate with the relevant
agencies of health care or welfare.
Although there are still some issues,
it will provide more continuous support for parents and children in the future.

We learned a lot from Professor Watanabe’s and Ms. Suzuki’s lectures and we had a
deeper understanding of childcare.
Thanks again for Professor Watanabe’s and Ms. Suzuki’s wonderful speeches.

Welcome Party: Our new friend from Pakistan

Hello everyone, I’m Lee, the research student in empowerment lab.

With the sunshine in a deep autumn, the Tsukuba University campus
have become a colorful garden which reminds me of a Tagore’s verse
‘It is the tears of the earth that keep her smiles in bloom’.

After empowerment seminar on November 12th, we held an
unforgettable party to welcome our new member Amara-san
who is from Pakistan with her family and plans to finish her
PHD degree in our lab. In order to give her a warm feeling of
first time to our lab, we well-prepared every process of this
welcome party.

We were so excited even if it was so cold in the deep autumn.
Our lab members prepared a full delicious lunch for Amara-san.
We introduced ourselves one by one and everyone was enthusiastic
in having a wonderful collision of though with Amara-san in the
future’s research. We taught her how to make the Japanese rice
ball which best represented the Japanese culture.
Besides, Amara-san was so curious about the method for using
chopsticks and she was grateful for the wonderful food prepared today.
Then, we took a photo together which shows the beautiful
smile of everyone.

After lunch, we ate the nice cake together and communicated with
each other in a happy and warm atmosphere. According to the
Japanese traditional culture, we ended this party by the way of
continuous hand-clapping. Professor Anme told us that the clapping
was the blessing of hope, happiness and healthy. So, we hope
Amara-san will enjoy the happy life with her family in
Tsukuba University and get significant academic achievement
in the future.

Hello everyone, the weather got cold recently, please pay more attention
to your body.
I am M1 student Cui, I am very happy to introduce you to this
Alumni association and the 8th Empowerment Cafe.
In the Tokyo campus of Tsukuba University, we held an alumni association,
very happy with the previous graduates Mr. Tanaka, Ms. Kawamura ,
Ms. Hatsue Sakai and Mr. Gishu Sakai.
In this meeting, everyone of us draw a poster to introduce our studies
and future plans.
Then, our teacher and previous graduates made their comments to us.
Through this activity, we have understood each other's ideas, research
plans and future goals, and have narrowed each other's distances.
It has also clarified our goals.
After the end, we immediately stared the Empowerment Cafe.
This time we are very pleased to invite Mr. Tanaka and Ms. Hatsue Sakai
who have many years of experience in childcare.
Professor Tanaka introduced us to the importance of supporting for
children and families.
He told us why the support plan is needed, how to set up the support plan,
how to
cooperate with specialized agencies strongly.
And Professor Tanaka showed a paper called "Development Evaluation Indicator".
By using this we will grasp the current situation and issues of child-rearing.
The power for children to grow up, the ability for parents to nurture,
the force with which teachers are involved, the power to interact with
one another, these forces are very important and are thought to affect
each other.
And Ms. Hatsue Sakai introduced us to the current situation and issues
of childcare.
Today, the environment surrounding children and caretakers is
very prominent.
Relative poverty, society's disrespect, abuse, unstable employment,
etc. were mentioned as examples. AI, artificial intelligence was
introduced as an issue that seemed possible. I grow up with AI,
work in collaboration, accomplish the role sharing,
and are drawing attention now. However, it has drawbacks such as
low reading ability, inference, image fixing. So it seems that it is
still under consideration how artificial intelligence is useful for child rearing.
After the empowerment Cafe, we went to an information exchange party.
Chicken and seafood were very delicious. The last dessert sweet and delicious.
The teachers and the members talked about various topics. We had a good time.
Thank you very much for the professors and graduate`coming.
