I(Ms.Goto) was a researcher when the Nuclear power plant accidents occurred in Fukushima. I discussed the situations with mothers. ...Some people think baby cannot understand words or outside world around him/her. But that's not true. Babies and small children can understand you and your situation much better than you think. So, I advice mothers, "talk to your baby."
Scientists tried to send many radiation related information to people. But people didn't accepted quite a lot of points. There was a huge gap.
Psychiatrist and health workers tried to pick up high risk people who are having much anxiety and got depressed, by doing paper survey(sending interview sheets). Psychological health conditon of mothers.
"Do not go out! You play inside, kids." Mothers tend to afraid radiation more than fathers.
When we use these words, "Please listen. Japanese government is saying ...", people tend not to listen. I found. It's not working. Instead, we should use 'our own words really came out from our heart.' "we ,I, health workers consider like this..." This is better.
