What can you say about irresponsible parenting?

Last night, my friend posted a link of an article. It is actually a headline news in Japan. It is about a divorced woman who had become tired of caring for her children. She just wanted some free time. She just wanted to enjoy and bring back the joy of her single life. Without second thought, she left her children in their apartment and kill them through starvation. I just really think that such mothers not only in Japan but also around the world should be punished accordingly.

She's just one horrible mother in the world. I couldn't imagine someone who could abandon children like that. She should have brought them at an orphanage. She's mentally ill.

You just need shoulder your own responsibility ,such as take good care of your parents and children,and that's enough. There are always lots of things that can't reverse the situation.But if we people all can be accountable.,then I believe the world will become more harmonious.

I am shocked to hear about the Japanese lady's irresponsible behavior. I wonder how she could leave her children in her apartment and not be there to feed them. It must have been horrific that the poor children couldn't get away. I hope that there are not many other ladies that treat their children in such a sick way. I believe that the Japanese lady should be sent to jail. I am a primary school teacher to many and a parent of three children. I remember a child that I met on teaching practice. He wasn't cared about by his parents. They used to make him stay in the garden when they were in the house. When they went shopping they let him in the car outside. I wonder if he is cared for by the social services now.

The children couldn't actually ask for help because they are too young. The older one is just 3 years old and the other one is just 8 months. The mother is totally insane. Yet the mother was already sent to jail. I hope she'll not get any food there. just kidding..hehe

She is a really irresponsible and terrible mother.Her broken marriage is nothing with her children at all.Whatever happens,parents should protect their children.So people must do think about marriage seriously before their marriage and choose more suitable sprouse,and then cherish the marriage and relationship. Children are the world's future.Everybody should be responsible parent.

That is so right, JuanPearl. Parents are molders of what the future generation will be.

well this incident is not only happening in Japan but also in most countries, it is really frustrating when parents are not taking good care of their children, to think this children are a blessing to parents, they are lucky, there are some couples who do not have children and tends to adopt just to have little kids to live with

Some people were just not meant to be parents. unfortunately, those are the people who have no problem having children. Being a parent is not a game. it is a huge responsibility. When you are a parent , you are responsible for the life and future of another human being. You should try to be the best parent you can be. If you have challenges with parenting, it is a wise decision to seek some guidance. Being an irresponsible parent is not healthy for you or your child.

This kind of parents are so sick. I can never understand why some parents can be so cruel to their own children. As for as I am concerned, my son is much more important than myself. As to these irresponsible parents, I wish they would not have children. As long as their children were born, they should take good care of them no matter what. I love China

Wow that is so sad and irresponsible. People today just do not think about consequences when they have children. Somewhere in their pea brain of mind they forget that once you have children life as a single person no longer exists. Yes I agree with you there should be no absolute mercy on someone like this as where was the mercy for the poor hungry children. I am always the forgiving person and always willing to give second chances but this is unforgivable and she will have to not only live with this for the rest of her life but she will have to answer to God.

It seems things happened in reality are more dramatic than virtuality.I coincidently saw a news on TV yesterday like that.It's about a couple of parents with their two baby boys.They both come from countryside and nowadays live in city.They haven't been educated enough and master any kind of technology.They are earning their daily bread very very hared.Then you guess they did what? They actually sold their second son! What cruel parents they are!Then the father now is in prison and getting the punishment he deserves.However,the young mother is not mature enough to reach the age in law so she didn't been punished.The reason I wrote the news here is to tell you: There are always selfish and cruel people in the world,like there are always selfless people as well.But we should all take our responsibilities and maintain humanity we should have.We are totally different from animals!

Such parents who are doing such terrible things, I pity them children to be born to such parents! How selfish could that mom be? I would understand if she would send them to adoption (not that its the right solution, but at least they would be alive!). I think that bad parenting should be a crime, people are being so jerk about having kids: "let just have kids", people should think twice before they do it! Those news makes me furious and kind of sad, I really feel pity for those kids.

Hi ronaldallan! She would be punished hard enough by her conscience. I hope there is something to learn from this. Marriage and parenting are not something to be taken lightly. They are serious stuff to be taken seriously. They demand commitment, dedication, love, time.

A real sane parent wouldn't do this to her children. Where is love and care for the children. Unfortunately bearing children is a lifetime commitment plus responsibility and not a casual engagement. Wherein you can decide whether to take care of them only when everything goes well. As a parent your life revolves around them and not the other way round. This was an evil intention from this parent she has a lot of explaining to do. She has to be checked if she is mentally balanced to be a parent.
