The daughter was an adult able to now make her own decisions. A controling mom who use to decide everything could lose her cool really easily at the first real "no".

Do you know something about this family that we don't?

Here in my country. Your parents are allowed to abuse you verbally and physically. And they can just go and say it was to 'discipline' you. And if you answer back or leave home, you become 'ungrateful' because it should be understandable that because your mother gave birth to you. She has every right...

I hate this idea in our society. That's why I'm avoiding my mother.

Nothing could justify such terrible and unfortunate act. May she lay in peace and the mother find closure with herself.

Japan should teach speech method to deal with their kid to parents. The world today is a world where children are given everything because of freedom. You will not be able to keep freedom from them any longer. They have a say in they future, their live, and this right imply making mistakes.

As a mom I Know frustration and I am a cool mom. This is very sad for the young lady who passed away and the family that loved her. May they learn forgiveness.
