And are they doing anything about it?

A lot of what is considered abuse in other countries is considered as 'normal' in Japan. Hence you now have a bunch of adults with mental illness making the decisions... Blind leading the blind.

I thinks conscientious parents don't do that. Government much inform and list up what constitute abuse. Younger parents are too much stress out due to economic situations besides these younger parent's parent were so hardworking in their time and haven taken care them of about love, care and understanding in their children days that make them so timid, unwanted and cold blooded society. Younger parent therefore be reeducated and reoriented to be chid-loving parents. It's the government and educational institutions that must act now.
