poor single mother.

I don't really see what being a single mother has to do with it. My mother was a single mother to three children and yet managed not to stab any of us.

Poor bleeding heart liberals who actually feel sorry for the criminal and not the victim.

So you're a single mother? Grow up and take responsibility. Oh yeah, and murdering your child so you can have a better life for yourself is NOT taking responsibility.

My brother was a single father who worked 12 hour days building houses to make a living. And, at 21 years of age, my niece is void of any stab wounds courtesy of him.

"Okasan, I understand how difficult your life must be. Here's a suspended sentence. Just don't stab any more children in the next few years".

I can only pray that the boy makes a full recovery and that some stupid judge doesn't return him to his mother.

Poor boy. I hope he recovers physically. Probably never will emotionally. What other abuse has the so called single mother been meting out. Sorry but I cant feel sorry for a women that trys to kill her own son. In this instance the single mother sympathy card doesnt work for me. It will for the judge though. Case dismissed. Throw it out.

Terrible incident. Hopefully the boy recovers and is put in the care of someone 'mentally stable' and in a safe environment.

Stabbings in the news almost everyday lately. Should outlaw knives in Japan. All food should be sold in hitokuchi portions thereby eliminating need for cutting. Another tragic incident. This mother/child relationship can never be repaired.

like that famous quote from the "Dark Knight" film: AND-HERE-WE-GO!

FFS, In a twisted and sick society like this.. child-murderers, rapists, child-abusers seems to have the public's sympathy since none of them are given real jail sentences but suspended sentences in exchange of gomen letters. Sick Sick Sick and corrupted society we are living in...DAMN!

And this JN society despises righteous critiscism as you can see from the ones who come to the rescue to save its face no matter how sick the crime is...this is the hidden crux of the problem here...never facing reality is the foundation of doom

Mother/Father trying to kill own child is increasing in Japan these days.

Mom likely was finding it too horrible to cope with the kid, who likely reminded her of his father, who likely left her. Not saying I feel sorry for her, but I suspect that's what led to this horrible act, which will undoubtedly leave this poor kid emotionally scarred for life.

Hopefully the judge won't punish her by making her take care of him.

No longer will she hurt anyone....

Nothing can be so bad in your life you can stab a child..that's just something a coward would do..i do not feel any pain for this woman, and i hope she gets what she deserves. My prayers go out to this little boy, who his whole life will remember how the one person who was to give him everlasting love, tried to kill him!

She must have been frustrated..maybe she didn't have a proper job.

ANd not having a proper job is an excuse?
