Samantha - Have you not considered some of the great great grand children may not be old enough to have children? Please don't think you have come up with a witty remark - frankly you are just being insulting.

cleo- Please don't talk down to me like that. Sometimes kids will be kids, you can reason with them, explain to them, bribe them, time out them but if all else fails, a swat and a time out will put them in their place. I'm sure your kids turned out fine and dandy your way and I know many that turned out to be the bee's knees mine.

jumpultimatestars- that is alot to assume about me. Of course if my child were well behaved, I would not have to resort to giving them a little swat. Please don't assume that I am automatically out to hit my children. I have not passed any judgement on your method yet all you do is pass judgement on me. Please don't talk to me like I am some serious concern to children. That is such an unfair judgment on your part. As someone who has had experience with such punishment, it seems I am doing a better job at not passing accusatory judgements about how others raise their children. Think about that.

While my fingers are not stuck firmly in my ears, I like my life, I like my childhood, I have been told I am one of the nicest people on the block. And if that for whatever the reason was brought about by poor parenting, I don't know what more I can say.
eep. disciplining children going into a nuclear discussion. THAT - I would rather not touch.
TokiyoJun. 10, 2013 - 01:21PM JST
jumpultimatestars- how is it ineffective if I grew up just fine? I was nurtured taught and guided. But life can't be sugar plums and candy canes all the time. Plus, it wasn't a full out beating or anything - a quick swat after reasoning, warnings, time outs failed to work. Actions have consequences, and that is part of learning what it is to grow up in society.
bass4funk - Nope, take the parents out to lunch and dinner regularly, I enjoy their company.
TokiyoJun. 10, 2013 - 12:40PM JST
jumpultimatestars- excuse me, but how exactly is it lazy? I love my parents and frankly it is insulting that you insinuate that their parenting was lazy. They made sure all of use finished college, had a variety of hobbies, maintained composure in public while still letting us have our fun. That's far from lazy I would say. Needless to say, I deserved every whack to the thigh - we learned our lessons good after that.

My parents had a special bamboo stick that came out when we were naughty - we turned out ok. Will probably take the same approach with my kids.
Everyday I see unruly kids in public and their parents don't do anything about it. Rolling on the floor in Haneda, climbing over other passengers on trains and buses, trampling the turf in no entry areas in parks. Seriously, if the parents gave them a stern talking to and a quick swat, I'm sure they would be fixed right up. People are too lax on kids these days...

Meguroman - seriously? selective breeding does not insert genes from other species into the gene pool like GMO does. You can see the danger there?
And its not only dangerous in terms of crops - have you seen the way companies like monsanto leave farmers in ruin by taking over their land if monsanto branded GMO seed happens to end up in their crop?
Learn the difference between the two please - too much is at stake for such comments.

I applaud you for speaking on behalf of the entire Korean and Japanese population John. Surely the best way to move forward is to stick your fingers in your ears and cut each other off completely - the mature way to handle things!

Exactly David, that would be exactly on pointe.
Well, its good enough fodder for Chucky to come along and rag on Japan.
Its played at some clubs but it just never took hold, whats the big deal? Oh wait, that's right, some obscure whiners to latch onto in order to diss Japan, yet again.

I really dont think that was the intention Maria.
Tororo could be a number of things that definitely are not sashimi...
A truncated pronouciation of troll or nagaimo are the first two things that come to mind.
