One, two, poo in your shoe; three, four, wee on the floor

Yeah, so apparently japanese kids don't learn how to go to the bathroom properly or something. I don't have much to add other than a huge WTF.

"It's really hard to show a little boy how to pee," the 34-year-old mother of a 4-year-old kindergartner tells Sunday Mainichi. "It's not like moms know how to piss standing up. We don't know the right way for boys to get rid of their wastes. Guys don't wipe themselves after having a pee, right? It seems kinda dirty to me. I really, really hate it when I see undies with skidmarks in them."
Wow. Just.... wow.

"Some children deliberately urinate all over the place or defecate in their parents' shoes," a consultant on childcare for new moms tells Sunday Mainichi. "By doing this, they're trying to attract their parents' attention. I think it's a sign from the kids."
Jesus christ, are these kids or dogs? How the hell do they start doing THIS?

Those damn kids need to watch this video and do some learning:

I love how in the video the pants are like a level up. Pooping RPG's will be the next big DS game.

I just finished reading the above linked article. I second billybobsky.

What's going on here? Very strange. These kids are bonkers!

Their culture's been around for millennia.

You'd think they would have come to grips with such niceties by now.

Our kids may be screwed up, but at least they know how to go to the bathroom.

I'm thinking there's more to the story that the articles isn't telling us.

I mean, surely it's not like kids organized together to poo in protest against steel toilets. Besides, the previous generation didn't have that problem, did they?

Just exactly what is going on over there?

Maybe the differences in toilets at school vs. the ones they're used to at home? Perhaps that's freaking the kids out a bit? The article mentions that. I guess they have those other types of toilets at home, and then they come to school and it's this strange looking contraption...

I'm not sure about the article at all...I mean, between the title and the liberal use of pee/piss/etc I remain suspect.

The video though....HO LEE SHIT. Different culture than us writing-our-name-in-the-snow Westerners, sure, but still. If I learned at youth that the pickle I pinched off was going to swim around screaming after the fact...no wonder the kids are afraid.

So it goes.

I was thinking that very thing, reading the article. Hardly AP style, huh?

It's one thing to have that stuff in there, in quotes from people in the story. But the actual WRITER of the article talks that way throughout, so it struck me as a) poorly written, or b) some sort of Onion-esque "fake news" type of deal.

It's weird to see reporters writing in such a casual, "poopy/pee-pee" manner.

Oh, and that YouTube training video just made my eyes turn inside out. I also have about 35 more gray hairs too.





But that's a happy little bear (Raccoon? Tiger? Monkey?) family. They do enjoy their bathroom time!

Reminder: This is a transcript; it was written in Japanese orignally. Expect some to be lost in translation.

Edit: Saw the video. Gonna admit it; they sure got to the point bluntly compared to literature in US which seems to be rewarding kids for sitting on a funny chair and smiling. No mention of that dirty word whatsoever. Japanese sure as hell didn't beat around the bush with that one!

The upside is the moms give them handjobs when they're 16-17 to ease them thru exams.

Imagine your mom giving you a hand job when you are 16 and rethink that as an upside...

I wouldn't have minded his mom giving me a handjob at 16.

...and so the thread takes an unexpected (not really), ugly turn downward.

By this time tomorrow, we will have hit all the bases.

And this is why I love the 'Nova. A thread that starts with talking about children shitting in shoes and pissing on the floor ends with murbot and billybobsky having their way with AWR's mom, and all in only 20 replies. Beautiful.
