Chihiro Higashi, representative director of the Association of Parenting Psychology, who has been involved in the education industry for more than 30 years and is active as a child-rearing counselor, has published an e-book “Textbook of Truancy” for those who are worried about their children’s school refusal.

■ The number of school refusal students continues to increase. Recently, there has been an increase in consultations about refusal to attend school due to anxiety about the corona crisis.
According to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s 2020 “Survey on problems related to student guidance such as problem behavior and school refusal” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the number of school refusal students in elementary and junior high schools is 196,127, and the percentage of enrolled children is 2.0. %, and has been steadily increasing since 2013. Also, in recent years, in the field of child-rearing counseling, there has been a great increase in consultations such as “Children have become very anxious due to the corona disaster, and they are unable to go to school or have become reluctant to go to school”. It can be seen that changes in the living environment have a great impact on children.
I want to deliver courage and hope to parents who are suffering from their children not attending school.
Higashi, the author of this book, provides counseling using a unique method called “Kokoro Savings”*, and has supported more than 20,000 parents who are worried about raising children. Among them, 70 to 80% of consultations are about school refusal and school reluctance, and I wrote this book with the desire to deliver a message that gives courage and hope to parents who are suffering from school refusal problems. When publishing it, we decided to limit it to e-books, taking into account the feelings of parents, such as that children would be shocked if there was a book at home that they did not attend school, and that it would be embarrassing if they could see them reading.
* Originally developed by Chihiro Azuma based on psychology and coaching. It is a practical method that can be started from today by steadily saving the love of parents in the piggy bank of the child’s heart.
■ Includes simple and specific advice and improvement examples “Textbook of truancy” is based on Azuma’s original method “Kokoro savings”, Chapter 1 “Why are parents of children who do not attend school anxious”, Chapter 2 “Prescription for truancy” ”, Chapter 3 “Kokoro Savings for Parents: The Mechanism of Happy Spirals”, Chapter 4 “How to save money for children who refuse to go to school?” It consists of three cases in which In addition to simple and concrete introductions on what to do now, how to convey affection, and what not to do, it also provides answers to common worries such as “Is it correct to transfer schools?” We have recorded many topics that will help parents solve their worries, such as answers and a mother’s experience of actually improving her child’s school refusal.
