    Well, at least he wasn't "physically" hiding anything - like a knife or an icepick...

    The boy told his mother that a man had touched his lower body parts and she contacted police.

    Somehow, I don't think a six-year-old would think of "making this up"...

    I don't care how "small" it was... I haven't forgotten the Fukushima one that scared both me and my dog out of our wits... after all, It may just be the "precursory" of bigger ones to come... and we certainly felt this one here in Yokohama !

    My mother had a dog when my elder brother was born. The same dog seven years later when I was born. Ditto for little brother who "arrived" three years after me... We were brought up with dogs, we all loved dogs and each one had his/her own however, the ONLY times the dogs were "left" outside was when they were playing in the garden or going for walks with their caretakers. (There are still numerous dogs left outside, whatever the weather, in Japan...) Taking care of them taught us responsibility. It was up to us to feed them, walk them and play with them in the garden and they all lived to a grand old age. By the way, dogs do NOT need clothes... they are already "dressed"...

    You have to realise that in this country there is not much proactive help for abused wives and homeless families.

    So VERY true... unfortunately...

    Maybe he is... (but maybe for "other" reasons...)

    I missed the word "BAN"... so I voted "No" by mistake... Of course I meant YES !

    “The point of discipline is to make the child respect other people’s dignity and human rights. That means respecting the child’s own dignity and human rights.”

    I guess both my brothers and I were lucky ! That's the way we were brought up - and that's the way I tried to bring my own two sons up (but it certainly isn't always easy !)

    Atsuko Namikata

    Namikata is the third daughter of Yoshihide Fujita, 74, and his wife Yoki, 81.

    Maybe I'm missing something here ? Other posters say Atsuko wasn't married - why does she have a different surname from that of her parents ? In any case, it doesn't explain why she was the only one to take care of her parents, one wonders why the other two sisters couldn't "relieve" her from her duties from time to time... There are FAR too many stories of children having to take care of their ageing parents because the government doesn't do enough in the way of health care for anyone, young or old...

    It reminds me of a "line" I believe I heard in a song a long time ago :

    "Hit them when they're up, hit them when they're down..."

    Kumamoto has had much more than it's "fair share" of catastrophes...

    were attached to a division to crack down on drunk arriving,

    I believe they mean crack down on "drunk driving" ? Anyway, not a very good example for the police...

    Don't remember if I read it here or heard it on the news but it would seem that a lot of "18-year-olds" may be on ships during the voting period - and since they will not yet be considered "part of the crew", they won't be allowed to vote...

    @kurisupisu

    Falling aeep Iin trains,on the street or falling over are signs of problem drinking. These ladies are sacrificing their own safety by imbibing too much ....

    Although I'm really inclined to agree with this I'm beginning to wonder if they do if for the same reasons the "unemployed" start robbing convenience stores ? These ladies are probably trying to "escape from reality" which, it would seem, is pretty harsh for most of us right now...

    That seems to be the very same hospital I now avoid like the pest... I had a different problem (so different doctor) but luckily we tried - and found - a MUCH better place. I now avoid all "University hospitals"...

    It's not good to live with the parents after you pass your mid 20's, especially if it's a small household. The relationship just deteriorates with each passing year.

    I think that depends a lot on the situation... My son is not living with me, I'm living with him in HIS house because I don't have anywhere else to go...
