Thinking about the problem of bullying: listening to the children involved
[ Description ] Much attention has been given with the ongoing occurrences of child suicide due to bullying in schools and suicides from corporal punishment and power harassment by instructors in club activities in the last year or so.
Last November, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology announced findings of 144,054 recognized cases of bullying in elementary, junior high and high schools during an emergency survey.
These issues including bullying and corporal punishment have been recognized as playing a part in the continued growth of truancy cases since 1977 and been at the core of children’s rights counseling with lawyers.
Have we really made an effort to understand and find a solution to the issues from the perspectives of the children involved?
Ryoko Uchida has given advice to parents and other adults and will share with us her insights learned from gently listening to children.
