It's going to be a hard move but I'm all in. I always refuse platic bag at convenient store (ain't need for my water bottle) , they can ban it or ask customer to pay for it. We did it in my country 20 years ago.

This is overaction at a high lvl... a small spank on the butt or hands never really hurt nor traumatized my kids. They something need it. And when it's done, make sure to hug 'em and explain to 'em what they did was wrong.

As i read this article ... my wife just told me that someone is coming at 10:30am today to check on my youngest daugther (she's 18 months) , she came in the past already and so did for my son... these people only stayed at the entrance of my house.. they don't even check on childrens, they just ask us few questions like (are you having trouble raising your childs?) etc....

It's a joke

Good initiative. More trainees from friendly and free nations like Taiwan, Vietnam and Philippines please. They come because they love and want to live in Japan, not for the money.

The fee of the school is base on your yearly incomes.

Somehow this is right and wrong, because... it takes from past year, when my wife got the second one... she took 14 months off from her job... (she didn't get pay for few months) yet ... i had to pay FULL price for my other child which was 20000 yens. Now they both go to school and i'm paying 30000 yens (the scond child is half price)

They just didn't eat enough carrots ;) , and it can also be genetic. Now, about spending time on screen and gaming... u gotta look why it's happening, most of the parent let their kids playing with their phones to get ride of them, instead of doing activities with them.
