Predicted "Birth of President Macron" two years ago. Dissect the strengths and weaknesses of French culture.
Creating the soil for "how to raise people" and "mature adult culture (sensuality)" at school and at home. Full of hints for urgent issues facing Japan, such as free education, measures against the declining birthrate, and global human resource development. The reality of France that is different from the near future depicted by Michel Houellebec's "Submission". ◆ "There is no choice question in the exam" "20 points instead of 100 points" "Ballpoint pen and fountain pen without using a pencil" "Technical points" for math answers "The price of school lunch changes depending on income" "For children Leftovers! "--French education and child-rearing that is completely different from Japan. Where do the world-leading human resources come from in arts, culture, and academia? ◆ A dermatologist who raised three boys in Paris for 20 years in France will introduce French elite education and child-rearing with episodes. For Japanese parents, there are plenty of points that can be helpful in raising their children to become first-class people. It is also suggestive to many readers who are interested in the mature French adult culture. "I've always witnessed the difference between Japan and France and thought about what's different. The first thing that came to my mind was education. (Omitted) France is different from the perspective of Japan. I don't allow it to be erased with an eraser. I use a fountain pen. What I write once remains a fact (even if I erase it with a sideline). Even if the answer is wrong in math, if it is beautiful, it will give you some points. Why? From an early age, train "the ability to deal with problems that have no correct answer". For this reason, we do not ask two-choice or three-choice questions or XX-style questions that are easy to celebrate. As all adults know, it is very rare that there is only one correct answer in <1 + 1 = 2> like the addition and subtraction of integers in life. If you hit that into your young head, you will grow up many times faster than a Japanese child who is stroking his head with <1 + 1 = 2>. Becoming an adult early means knowing the joy and pleasure of being an adult sooner and more. "
