Special Appointed Prof. Mizuno gave the participants various investigation results and explained the children’s situation that there are some elementary and junior high school students who are in a chronic fatigue with lack of sleep which leads to decrease motivation for learning and a decline in brain function. For securing sleeping hours, it is important that children do moderate exercise and refrain going to convenience store at night, using Social Networking Services and watching TV and video. For improving a sleep habit, family communication, for example, having a meal with family and saying nice things to them, is important. The participants took notes earnestly.
