Hunger robs children of security and stability "here now".

Shunsuke Serizawa



The critics says that the violence to leave a child hungry will destroy the core of the child's "presence sense" that they can stay here so far as to be unrepairable. This can be said of not only family abuse but also poverty due to social disparities. The warmth children feel when they are satisfied supports a joy of life and hence their confidence in people from the bottom. From "Serizawa Shunsuke Talks Of Nurturing" (Case Ⅰ)."
