■■ The following describes” The advice of "Ikumen".”■■
The former page was turning the spotlight on a lady, but I'd like to turn
the spotlight on a man by this page!
In female social advancement, the law for a lady and the policy are also
important, husband's cooperation is necessary for the occasion reared above
Have you heard a word as" Iku Men"?
Yes! Even a television became the topic of conversation.
That's right. Then, what are Iku Men? I'll learn now!
■■Let's think about IkuMen.
What is IKumen?
IkuMen are the man who does child care on his own initiative aggressively
and the man who rears a child pleasantly. A child is being just reared
and such as getting child-care leave, enjoys child rearing aggressively
and also points at the man who grows by oneself.
Even if you can't participate in child care aggressively, the man who hopes
that he'd like to have that so in the future is included, too.
The awareness is so high that it was top ten spot by a YUKYAN new word
and the word in fashion first prize in 2010.
I always seem to have had my father be able to take a bath around a baby,
and the picture is left. Though work was the busy fatherhood, you always
participated in an event at school. I thank my father who gave priority
to me over work.
My father sometimes makes me a dish. My mother also does domesticities
of washing in busy time and time in bad condition. I and my elder sister
are helped of course, too.
Because the environment that a lady tends to work is complete and also
leads to Japanese economic growth, a government and various enterprises
are recommending IkuMen.
Then, supporting IkuMen like how is it or.I'll introduce some.
The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare employment equal* is the business
performed as trust business of Children and Families Bureau. Project participation
of IkuMen and IkuMen suporter will be promoted. The family will promote
the environmental development with which a man can participate in child
care more at whole enterprise, area and society.
The IkuMen of Year
The event for which every year October 19 authorized from a Japanese anniversary
society which are most this year according to "day of IkuMen"
I also cooperate in "Thank you, the dad project (male parental leave
promotion movement)" at the same time as a mama is freed from child
rearing and the IkuMen considering mama's happiness are being increased.
The thank you dad project
What is the thank you dad project?
Child-care leave for 8 weeks is called "dad maternity leave"
after the fortune admitted by only a dad by change Family and Medical Leave
Act, father's child-rearing participation is suggested by increasing the
man who acquires parental leave this period and the married couple's harmony
in the child rearing home and the parent and child's bond are made something
The NPO corporation father ring Japan which had for its object to promote
a match of the work life balance and the next generation upbringing which
can be put an enterprise, a country and an autonomous body again is the
social change project put into effect.
I hope that IkuMen and the mother who increases and functions are easily
But the child-care leave acquisition rates of the man are 2.03% and the
low level in 2013 according to the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
A government establishes the target which calls the child-care leave acquisition
rate of the man 10% by fiscal year 2017 and is advancing a match for that.
While the married couple who manages dual careers is increasing, don't
think it's that it's important to aim at the social realization a father
and a mother can do while rearing children.
That's right. It would be possible to be that a burden to a lady is less
again and reduce the lady who gives up bearing a child. It's also tied
with a solution for birth rate declination to promote IkuMen.
I see! It's connecting this, isn't it?
It's important to will can reduce a burden compatible of female work and
child rearing and return to work relievedly.
And to make it the first trigger with which a man participates in child
rearing, a country is promoting the merit of the male child-care leave.
Wouldn't a dad like to take child-care leave, either?
When a dad acquires child-care leave, when timing, a period, the respective
home reasons and a system of a company are considered, there are various
Pattern 1Child-care leave is acquired at the time when wife's just after childbearing
and return to work are serious in particular.
Even if special circumstances aren't when a dad acquired child-care leave
in the period within 8 weeks after mama's childbearing, another acquisition
➡ Just after the childbearing and the return to work just after the childbearing
are serious for a mama. When my husband carries a burden as child care
at such time, you're very relieved, right?
Pattern 2Child-care leave is acquired by a dad, a mama and a relay.
When a dad as well as a mama acquire child-care leave, too, a closure acquisition
possible period extends for 2 months! (Dad mama parental leave plus) (※)
1 year and in case of my mother add a born day, a closed period after fortune
and a child-care leave period to the upper limit of the child-care leave
period in case of my father, and, 1 year.
➡The room can be made child rearing by a dad's and a mama's getting a maximum
parental leave period all together.
Pattern 3A mama acquires child-care leave by a full-time housewife, too, and a mama
after childbearing is supported.
A mama can also use a system of reduced working hours for child-care leave
and child care for a dad in full-time housewife's case and the case when
he's taking child-care leave!
➡Mama's share also becomes little by a dad's participating in child rearing
aggressively, too. When you aren't supposed to make the child rearing lump
sum subcontract in wife, I think because my wife is a full-time housewife.
Pattern 4A dad and a mama rear a child by a system of reduced working hours for
child care while working.
The principle that it'll be done to use it when the laborer who breeds
a child up to 3 years old hopes for a company, I have to take a system
of reduced working hours for 6 hours a day. (A fixed laborer is excluded
for fixed working hours' on the 1st being less than 6 hours.)
➡When my parents are with a mama and a dad before even double-income becomes
dark in the evening, the child is relieved, too, isn't he?
Now when a lady is going into society this, so far, reversely, a man thinks
he's needing to consider a house. The feeling that the person who isn't
busy each other makes the domesticities and the child rearing aggressive
is important. I think that a company side also understands a male parental
leave system for it supports female social advancement.
I didn't know that IkuMen led to female social advancement and low birthrate
I thought it was that one of a junior high school student is able to make
it social purpose, too to have the search center where I'll have an interest,
not that a word as "IkuMen" passes with the time as the part
of the free rage and even check the deep meaning by myself.
