Not mental illness...Calousness.

Being cold and neglectful to your children would be "callous" , beating them and shaking them shows a sign that something isn't mentally right with that mother.

it happens. when a parent gets too stressed out, you have a million things to do at once and there's no one around to help, the kids cries non stop and then you snap... sad. there must be a way to prevent situations like this.

I think there is more to it than just snapping.

Punishment: 30mins a day with her head in a paint shaker.

I would ask where the dad was but this is JP so its most likely the dad was working his butt off in another city unless she was dating some loser.

They say allegedly so who reported it, the hospital?

In all likelihood, the father is off working two jobs to pay for keeping a family of five in a house.

Exactly Wakarimasen. I have met a lot of kind caring mothers, as well as some witches.

As a parent these sort of stories piss me off. Lock her up for good and make sure she no longer plays any part in her childrens lives!

This woman has some serious mental issues that could have saved her children alot of pain & agony if it would have been detected sooner. Wish the children well and hope she gets the help she so desperately needs.
