    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...

    GANBATTE !

    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...

    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...

    One can't "blame" Trump, he is originally from the same country as the author of "Mein Kampf" - he may even be a "distant relative"...

    So that's the "sporting spirit" eh ? I'm beginning to wonder if I understand the word "sport" correctly ? When I was growing up we were taught to be "good sports" but I didn't know it meant clashing with other people over some overgrown boys running after a little ball...

    I think I'm a "good sport" - since I certainly don't mind being thumbed down by all the "good ole sports" out there !

    Sign of the times... People are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet...

    The 67-year-old former health minister

    Nobody understands me ! As former health minister, I was only taking care of my health and that of my family by using public funds and official cars for our personal use ! One can catch so many germs when travelling by train...

    In other words, it looks like Babymetal figures it may as well let the real baby have his bottle.

    Sounds like he'd already had his bottle - and it contained something "other" than milk...

    It makes me wonder how we managed to live - quite comfortably - here in Japan before they ever had any consumption tax... Those were the days !

    May be he needs somewhere safe to sleep with a full stomach at night

    and I have a feeling he is NOT alone... Some of us are having a pretty hard time making ends meet...
