    Props to the mother for turning in her kid! Not many mothers in Japan would do that; they'd just defend their kid, or accuse the victim. Thumbs up for the mom!

    That's true in many cases, I must admit. It reminds me of the very old case of the girl in the cement drone. Her rapist-murderers' parents heard her pleas many times but always ignored her. Hmmm..

    you made good points...

    I was asking my husband the other day that I was wondering if he still finds me "attractive/sexy" in his eyes, now that I'm 30 and after giving birth 4 times (164cm/57kgs) maybe I'm nothing like the time we were dating.. and I thought that men like young women and all that, his reply was this:

    You'll never be better or more beautiful than this. not before, not 10 years later and although the truth is that most men like to look at the young women, doesn't mean they will go after her. I know I won't. I have all I need and more in you. I can't wait to get out of work and go home to you and my children, everyday.

    That's my rough translation from when he told me in Japanese but I guess you get the idea. Every single man is different. Stereotypes doesn't always define a man..or a woman for that matter.

    is this nonsense news worthy? Are this people so insignificant and unimportant that they have to resort to this sort of prank so they can make the news and have one minute of "fame"?

    "rape"

    Why would a man want to forcibly have sex with a woman or another man? I don't get it...

    I wonder that myself... Making love, on the other hand, its the most beautiful, sublime, passionate act between two human beings that love each other.. That's my heart speaking.. I apologize.

    @Smith

    Thank you for sharing your personal experience with this horrendous crime, It was really an eye opener about these ridiculous Police procedures. I think they are still living in the stone age when it comes to deal with Sexual Assaults.

    @Yardley I totally second your comment. Some of the comments here are made by immature people..Go figure!

    @Nicky

    that line of questioning is NOT standard procedure globally, I can assure you. In the UK specially trained FEMALE police officers deal with rape victims, rape crisis centre representatives are called in and never, ever, do you have to return to the scene of the crime and re-enact the attack again.

    Agree completely. Rape victims should deal only with female trained Police officers. a female rape victim should NEVER have a rape-kit done by a MALE doctor(if she doesn't want!). That should be outlawed. It's pathetic that in many countries, the rape crisis centers, police interrogations and physical checks are dominated by males. It doesn't help the victim in any way to have her body touched all over again by a man. Same with male rape victims. Freedom of choice should be available to both sexes. Japan has a serious problem and lack of female officers it seems. All these rape interrogations and physicals made by men.(in female rape cases) Really prehistoric and low class.

    Good points, Smith..

    I heard that some of the reason why rape victims in Japan avoid reporting rape to the police is because, apparently, the police themselves ask the victim to re-enact(physically) the way she was raped (the position too!) at the place where the crime happened..making her/him go through everything all over again with further humiliation. I'm not sure if they keep doing this, the police I mean.

    False rape reports should be SEVERELY punished I must add. It takes the credibility away from the REAL victims.

    I don't know if anyone have seen the film "Descent" with Rosario Dawson.. it shows how a rape victim goes through a series of steps, life changing situation, even revenge. Not that I condone the kind of revenge she took on her perpetrator but gosh, that film made me sick to my stomach, it was not only extremely graphic, but it felt so real. It's not nearly 50% accurate with what happens in real life, but it could give you a good idea of how rape victims have their lives shattered and broken. I think another one was "The Accused" with Jodie Foster..real life story and pretty graphic as well. Honestly, such films are really hard to watch. I wouldn't recommend anyone watching them unless you are seriously concerned with the subject...IMHO.

    Actually, I think it is Korea and South Africa with the worst Rape stats in the world? If wrong, please someone educate me, Thank You.

    @tmarie

    So what you're saying is that YOU then became the bully? Sorry Blue, generally I love your posts but this one is frightening. Do you think you made made a good impression on the other teachers? Do you think you set a good example for your kids? There are many, many ways to deal with a teacher you are having issues with but the way you went about it? Ouch. By and large, schools and teachers know which teachers are crap - and they don't like working day to day with them either. However, surprise visits doesn't just affect that teachers, it affects the whole staff and working environment.

    It's ok to disagree, tmarie. We are all different and may take different approaches at this kind of situation. I grew tired of seeking help from the school staff, principal even the board of education. Something needed to be done. I have to make clear that I never confronted these "teachers" in question with physical violence or unlawful acts. I just became annoying in showing myself in school, complaining to the principal, other parents complained but no one seemed to cared. If my presence intimidated them and threatened them, good then. They weren't the right kind of teacher you would want around your kids. Like I stated before, these two I dealt with were really the lowest of the low. and my presence over and over made their life miserable. I don't regret it. What I would regret is having a depressed child or worse...a suicidal child!

    Personally, I think kids having a crappy teacher (though certainly not one that bullies the kids) is a good life lesson. We all have to deal with people we don't like/great alone with/agree with in daily life as adults and learning to suck it up as a kid might help make it easier when they become adults and enter the work environment. I also dislike the whole "kids need to be friends with everyone in their class". Again, as adults, we don't have to so why do we have to think that kids do? Being respectful is one thing, friends is another. They need to be taught that - by their parents and then have it reinforced at school. Though if parents don't teach it, good luck to the teachers as they'll have a heck of a time!

    I tried all diplomatic ways, respectfully and polite. But nothing worked in that school. I'm sorry I had to take matters into my own hands. Not all of us have the good luck to have our kids in good schools. Still, I agree with many of your points. You seem the kind of mom whose children I would love to be friends with my children. Lucky you.

    @Nicky Washida

    @netninja -

    I think from reading other comments here that we have just been really lucky with our schools and teachers so far. I was responding to a comment that "ALL" teachers are bad - that has not been my experience at all so far TBH. My daughters current school in particular has a buddy system, anti-bullying posters, a "safe-room" with counsellors, and regular anti-bullying lessons. I know it works firsthand because recently I mistakenly thought a kid from her school (3rd grader) was picking on my youngest (who is only 2) and called him up on it (this was in our building) telling him not to bully little ones. He was so terribly upset to have been thought of as a bully that he actually sought me out a few days later, not to apologise but to explain his actions and why he thought he wasnt a bully. He was so polite, and even brave to have approached me directly knowing how angry I had been that we ended up having a nice chat and having established what class he was in I called the teacher to compliment him on the child (I didnt know his mother or which room he lived in). The point is - his biggest issue seemed to be being thought of as a "bully" - it really seemed to upset him!

    That little boy is sweet, probably with a very big kind heart. I get really emotional with such good and gentle children. I always tell my children to take care of their friends and that if they have the chance to come play in my house. I have this hobby of baking sweets and cookies and cakes. So when they come here, they leave with their little stomachs full. (^_^)

    However - I DO understand that there are also useless teachers and/or schools out there, and, less than useless, quite shocking in BlueWitches case. What kind of professional makes fun of a child period, never mind one with learning disabilities, and then encourages others to do the same? Personally, I think I would have followed her lead and done the same thing.

    Me and my husband were thinking to switch schools at first but I thought: "wait a minute, why would I move my children to another school? they are innocent!" So I came up with my own plan of making their life hell, day after day after day, with surprises visits, staring at them with such intimidation and threat. At they end, they couldn't take it anymore and after some time, one quitted, the other one transferred. End of nightmare. Next teachers were fine. Your normal kind. Not the moral police but not a sociopath having fun by mocking the weak and disabled.

    I hope and pray we continue our run of good luck with our teachers. Being the only foreign mum in the classes we have been in so far, I find it really helps at the beginning of each year to meet the teacher, explain a bit about myself and make a point of telling them I am not a "monster" parent, and I see my role education-wise as supplementary to them, and their role in all other areas as supplementary to me, so lets work together as a team to get my daughter through the year safely and happily, yoroshiku onegai shimasu. However, as I said we have had great teachers so far. Dont know how well that would go down with one of BWs sociopaths and if God forbid the time came I would probably step in much more strongly.

    I thought about grabbing one of them by the neck and pressing hard until the face turns blue, but my husband talked me out of it. the last thing he wanted was to visiting me in jail over defending our children. The best way, is the non-violent way. If you can crush their mentally, you'll get rid off them. It takes time and patience, but never give up like I did. Teacher-bullies are the worst kind, fortunately, they are the lowest percent, but when they happen, don't give in. Do what you have to do. It's your children after all.

    Still would never hit another kid though. Mortally embarrass him maybe, but never hit him.

    Yes, hitting a child-bully is not worth it, go for the source, the parents.

    @tmarie

    Blue, indeed there are some horrible teachers out there - I personally have gotten into "discussions" with a few over their lack on classroom control/management - but the union allows this. The horrible teachers, from my experience, are the older ones who don't want to be teachers anyone but can't do anything else. Sadly, the rest of "us" get tarred and feathered because of them.

    Exactly. most of these "mentally incompetent/immature" are there for the paycheck plus benefits, they don't give a rat's ass if the children tear each other apart, literally. They think because they are old, everybody do as they say. they are pathetic and usually get their way until they meet someone like me.

    Parents here don't seem to speak to parents about problems between the kids. I have no idea how many times I suggested having BOTH/ALL parents and kids called in and sit down for meetings. Nope. The school wouldn't let me nor any other teacher do it. Would solve so many issues. Thing is too, bullies are bullied - usually at home - so you can imagine some of the parents have to deal with.

    HA! There we have something in common..exactly! Bullies are bullied at home. It's a proven fact that the great majority (not everyone!!) of bullies live HELL at home. Parents are scumbags and usually abuse their own children. Bullies are born in such homes, most of the time. But as I said, not the 100% of them. Few bullies as sadistic by nature despite having good parents looking after them, which makes the case even more complex and difficult to handle.

    I won't start in about the cutters, the library kids, the strange ones... who all have parents who insist that their child is normal and fine. Sigh. Teachers should be teaching, not raising kids. Parents shouldn't be calling teachers to have them discipline the kids about smoking on the weekends, fighting with their sister.... but they do. And then when the teacher tries to deal with some issues? Told to mind their own business....

    And that's exactly what I do, tmarie...I RAISE and EDUCATE my children to be kind and well mannered human beings, gentle and compassionate with others, (they are far from perfect, but they do have a big heart) and the last thing I want is this type of rotten teacher messing with my children's heads. After all my hard work at home, to have this "loser" ruining everything at the classroom? Encouraging bullying? Cheering the bullies? No way!

    You've moved the goalposts by talking about teachers actually involved in bullying rather than ignoring it. Of course such a person would richly deserve a thick slice of BlueWitch Ragecake, and I wouldn't blame anyone for flying off the handle in such a confrontation.

    Indeed, the first time I find out about this ridiculous and shameful behavior by these two, I was in shock. Unbelievable I thought over and over. But they are NOT the majority. They are the exception to the rule. But they don't get fired! I had to make their lives impossible so we could get rid off them. It was exhausting and frustrating to become a bully's bully, gosh!

    But if we're talking about a homeroom teacher who either ignores or is genuinely unaware of bullying then surely a calm, friendly approach would be best. You asked me what I'd do; I'd speak to the teacher, the headteacher and the bullies' parents and ask what WE ALL ought to be doing to keep the classroom a happier place for everyone involved. You can't just blame the teacher And I'd give everyone a box of the excellent cheese manju from the shop round the corner. Nobody wants to do anything but smile and drink tea after a taste of one of them :)

    Nice suggestion, I usually get involved positively with my children's school staff and other classmate's parents. 95% of the time, we don't have to deal with this bullying situation because we know each other and if something arises, we can talk with each other in a civilized manner. A very different scenario from the above situation.

    And surely nobody invites people to a funeral. The funeral is announced and people turn up if they feel they should.

    I meant it in a different way, sorry. But I can imagine the whole staff and teacher in question having the nerve to present themselves in a student's funeral. It's amazing how some people lack any shame to even show up. In suicide situations where the school didn't take any action despite the parents pleas I mean.

    What's frustrating, tmarie and Yubaru, is that I know a few hard working teachers that discipline and take care of the children as if they were their own, no bullying or extreme disruptions in their classes. Unfortunately I had a couple of sociopaths teaching my elder children before and it was very messed up to the point that I had to become the bully (literally) with the two of them because they would encourage and cheer up bullying. I did what I had to do first. I went to the school principal, nothing, went to the school board of education, nothing. Week after week, I got no answer. My husband got fed up with the school's incompetence and why bullying wasn't deal with. So I took matter into my own hands and started making surprise visits to these culprits. My presence was enough threat and intimidation. I doubt these cowards had the thought of committing suicide. I guess I ruined their little game with the kids. The school wouldn't reprimand them or fire them, so I made sure me and other parents got rid off them for good!!

    There are amazing teachers out there, of that I have no doubt, but there are these rotten mentally sick ones that would actually BULLY students they don't like it seems. In all my years on this earth, I've seen everything I think.
    Anyway, beware of that kind of teacher, its not common, but not rare either. Just watch out.
