A strong mind that can recover from failure = resilience is attracting attention!
“Give up immediately and don’t try”, “I cry and whine as soon as I have something I don’t like”, “I can’t express my opinion”. As a parent, seeing your child like that can be frustrating and unnerving. However, there is a growing awareness around the world that being hurt or depressed is also a valuable experience, and that resilience is important. Resilience education is being practiced and researched in various countries such as the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, India, and China, and is one of the most popular educational methods today.
According to Hiromi Adachi, a leading authority on resilience education in Japan and the author of this book, “Resilience is a power that grows through experience. It is to develop the ability to cope and to endure frustration.It is said that this will greatly affect the subsequent development of resilience.”
Therefore, this book, “A picture book that strengthens your heart,” introduces know-how for children to develop a strong mind to deal with negative emotions such as anger, sadness, and anxiety.
It is OK if you choose a method that is easy to do
There are several ways to control negative emotions, but you don’t have to do them all. The book introduces various methods such as: [Slowly takes a deep breath]
In the picture book, it is expressed as “Iki no Maho”. Taking slow, deep breaths can help calm your emotions.

[Emotion labeling]
Children have a hard time verbalizing their own emotions, which can be a source of stress. By giving names to feelings such as “Irira-kun” and “Mesomeso-chan”, it becomes easier to notice and respond to your feelings.

[Do what you’re passionate about]
We also recommend the “flow experience” where you can immerse yourself in play and work that will make you forget about negative emotions. It’s OK to just scribble on paper with a crayon to your heart’s content.

Message from Keimi Adachi to parents
In this book, I described negative emotions and feelings such as anger, sadness, and anxiety that children feel as “Moyamoya-kun” and explained how to get along well. Negative emotions are often thought of as bad things to have. However, it is an important emotion that everyone can have to protect their mind and body and to know their true feelings that they may not even be aware of. Negative emotions, like positive emotions, are like lifelong friends. While recognizing that, it is important to learn how to get along well and become friends.
However, when Moyamoya-kun swells too much, it is also necessary to learn how to deal with it so that it can be calmed down. To that end, when Moyamoya-kun appears, parents and children should express their feelings and emotions together. Then, find a way to make Moyamoya-kun smaller and feel more comfortable in the picture book, and try it. The “ability to deal well with negative emotions” acquired in childhood will become a lifelong treasure and support children.
