its okay to slap a child when he/she do wrong ways or bad thing .. but i was a bit angry at Koko's father becoz wat he did was so wrong
first reason is becoz he backhanded her. backhand is not good becoz its for violent, not justify
second reason is he hit her so hard that made her fall on the ground. its seem to me more violent than teaching a lesson.
third reason is when u want to slap a child, then dont slap in front of people. only in private place. that stupid father hit her in front of her friends and boyfriend. its not good becoz it made them feel bad and worry about her and also they might feel its their faults

I wouldn't do it....under any circumstances. If the situation gets out of hand.....that's what the taser is for. But slap? Never.

Are you some kind of idiot? Holy crap.

Yeah, let's beat the kid somewhere where people can't see it, so it can feel how incredibly alone, inferior and helpless it is against a grown human. That's good for a growing child's psyche.

You're also saying it's okay with violence towards children, as long as it's just minor abuse. That's amazing.

I don't recall my father ever taking to hitting me or anything like that. Not once. Discipline can be enforced in ways other than violence and fear, so I don't think I'd personally use a slap as a deterrent.

Different people have different ways of raising there kids though.
Not only that, but different people respond differently... A soft touch might work for some kids, but not for others. If that's what it takes to keep them from screwing up, then to some extent I won't complain. I still think there are better ways though.

Still; it should be more private rather than involving other people in my opinion.

I have seen slapping before in Anime. The series Hanasaku Iroha had Hana's Grandmother slap her granddaughter.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/hanasaku-iroha

Is it fun to watch? No!

But if my daughter almost killed herself or endangered others in or out of the car, I would slap her too!
And if she died because she did something stupid, I would dig her up, slap her, then re-bury her...

Hanasaku Iroha is a good "Slice of life" Anime...that I recommend for everyone...it will surprise you!

I don't condone slapping anyone, and definitely wouldn't myself, primarily due to my pacifistic nature. I also find it funny to put a situation like what happened in Golden Time into perspective. Imagine Banri hadn't come around in time and they'd all died. 'If only my daughter were still alive... I'd have backhanded her into the floor so hard!'

In the situation described (I haven't watched it) and similar situations. I would probably have done the same thing. First off Koko is not a child, she is in college after all for all of you who have forgotten or not seen the series. So I don't really know why all the child abuse bullshit is coming up, at the very least she is 18, so she is no child anymore. She endangered not just herself but others by driving while tired, and probably did not tell anyone so they could take over driving or something. She deserved a slap to get her senses back on path.

Also, in Asian countries and families especially, family hierarchy for a way to call it, is very prominent, you listen to your parents and your grandparents. If you don't they pretty much can smack you senseless, in public even, and the best you can do is complain just to get smacked around again. No one will be on your side and will just turn a blind eye to it because that is just how things are over there. I learned all of this from my Japanese neighbors when they moved here from Japan.

I've slapped people before and I have been slapped before. All for the reason of giving our senses are reality check. I don't see why it is such a cried over thing, it happens, everywhere, all the time. I think people are just over-sensitive and think they all need to be "OMG we need to love each other and be happy everywhere!!" Take the rose-tinted glasses off, the world isn't that nice.

A 19-20 year-old falls asleep while driving, endangering people's lives!? A slap, even back-handed, is a rather mild punishment for that. Would it make a difference if it came from any of the family members of the passengers, or even the passengers themselves? Unless she's narcoleptic, she knew full well how sleepy she was. Driving while exhausted/sleepy is considered nearly on par with driving drunk or high, even in the medical sense. Realistically, in the US and possibly in Japan, she would face criminal charges. She's not a child anymore, after all.

No, it's not abuse in this situation. She's not even a kid, but is, in fact, a legal adult.

Slapping can help, but not just girls. Hell, I occasionally slap myself to help "snap myself out" of things, including drowsiness.


MANY OF THE POSTS GIVE ME THE IMPRESSION THAT THE CREATORS OF SAID POSTS ARE UNAWARE OF ALL THE PROTAGONISTS IN "GOLDEN TIME" BEING ADULT COLLEGE STUDENTS.

That is far from consideration of abuse in America. That is called discipline....

"children are spoiled nowadays"? Yeah, makes sense. Beat some sense into the little bastards, that'll teach them. You people are idiots.


Please do share your awesome parenting skills since you seem to be the only one who knows what they're doing.

I might need it for when I have my own kids.
You see I was just planning on smacking the little shits around hoping that'll do the trick...

This, going through this thread so far I don't think a single person realizes that the show itself is based around college students, thus 18 at the youngest (assuming Japan has a similar age structure around schooling as US) but probably 19-21 range.

Not part of this conversation... BUT: I have babysat kids of family friends before, still do actually. They range from 2 years old to 11 year olds... just gotta say... when it comes to them...


Smacking the little shits works pretty damn well.

So was your comment about people being idiots..

Don't call people idiots when you yourself don't seem to know any better.

Well, I think that a spoiled child is easier to deal with than a bitter child. A slap is only a shock the first time it happens. After a while, the kid will only respond with anger - at any perceived accusation, too.

But I guess it depends on the kid's personality. I just haven't known any kids that put up with being smacked.
