Tokyo Child Guidance Office
About the Child Guidance Office
Founded on the basis of the Child Welfare Law, a child guidance office accepts any type of consultation
relevant to a child aged under 18, from anyone including the child, family, school teachers and local residents.
A child guidance office is a specialized counseling institution designed to search for solutions and solve
problems with the hope of supporting children's sound growth.
We handle the following types of consultation cases.
The Child Guidance Offices offer counseling on all matters related to the growth of children and youth, ages 0-18, including:
- Questions concerning child raising
- Dealing with stress which may cause you to act violently toward your child
- Inability to care for your child due to illness or other situations(Depending on your situation, child care can be provided at the center.)
- Concern about the development of your child’s speech or growth
- Your child’s recent tendency to stay out all night or to resort to violence at home
- Concern for your child not being able to make friends
- Concern for your child not willing to attend school
- Problems with your child’s education or guidance in higher education
- Child's human rights are at stake due to child abuse or other reasons
Specialized staff members are stationed at each center.
