Season's Greetings and Best Wishes for 2013


Thank you for your continued support. Now in its 17th year, we at CRN are pleased that the users of our websites in three languages, English, Chinese, and Japanese, continue to access and find them useful. This year I was pleasantly surprised to receive inquiries from London, where I had lived as an intern for three years many years ago, in response to my article about a combined nursing home and childcare center facility. Someone somewhere is always paying attention, and it made me realize that we need to work even harder toward enhancing CRN's content.

In 2012, CRN hosted the Child Science Exchange Program in East Asia during September 22-23 in Taipei. I personally participated in many conferences, which included those of the Japan Pediatric Society, Japan Society of Developmental Psychology, Japanese Society of Child Science, the Japanese Society of Baby Science, the Japanese Society for Breastfeeding Research, Japan Society of Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine, the Society of Ambulatory and General Pediatrics of Japan, Japan Society of Adolescentology, Japanese Society of Pediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Japanese Society for Pediatric Infectious Diseases, and Japanese Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect. I also took part in a range of child-related activities such as the Yomiuri Child-raising Support Group, Japan Intractable Diseases Research Foundation, Japan Lullaby Association, and Japan Leukaemia Research Fund.

In 2013, CRN will strive to further enhance content and further contribute to people who are concerned about children's issues. In order to strengthen our network, we have opened official SNS pages of each websites: Facebook for the English website, Facebook and Twitter for the Japanese website, and Weibo for the Chinese website. Each site is specially designed for the best usability, so we can expect good results in this respect. At the same time, as our friendly inquiries from London have reminded us: it is important to find and provide new information and hints about the children's issues to improve their lives. We hope that you will continue to extend your support throughout the coming year. Thank you.
