We were out recently with our children, and saw a mother, not young - say 40 something, with her little under 5 year old daughter, and a much much younger man whom she was all over. The girl irritated her by wanting to talk, and she punched the girl with a closed fist on top of her head so hard it made a thudding sound and the child burst into tears. I was beyond disgusted, and told her so, but noone seemed to want to do anything about it. Other people saw and they just didnt seem to give a damn. What can I say, the Japanese Ive seen appear to be the most terrible parents, and children rank much lower than the love lives of their mothers, it would appear.
