The Current Situation of Japan
People might have heard about the current situation of children and young adults in Japan. Many of them are experiencing child abuse, truancy, bullying, suicide, poverty, and unexpected pregnancy.
In 2017, Japan hit the highest number of child abuse cases. There were 130,000 child abuse cases in 2017 (120,000 in 2016). In addition, in Japan, one of seven children are living in poverty. There are many children suffering from abuse and poverty at home, where it should be a base of their life.
At schools, the second most important place for children next to home, truancy and bullying became a huge problem. 190,000 students became truant (130,000 last year) and there were 410,000 cases of bullying. Both statistic hit the biggest number of all time in Japan. The main two places for children to be at– home and school–became places where they feel vulnerable, face abuse and abusive languages, and experience poverty, and bullying.
Japan lack in improvements for children’s environment and social security system. Japan is facing aging society; thus social security is more for senior citizens and not much for children and education, which became a burden for some parents and teachers. The rate of children’s poverty is 14.3%, which is higher than OECD average; however, the poverty rate of single-parent family is more than 50%, which is one of the worst in the world.
