Hi.... owner of a Daycare (Hoikuen) and afterschool care center (Gakudo) in Japan for 10 years.... there is no truth to this article whatsoever. Japanese children on average are just as wild and undisciplined as western kids. This is typical "The grass is greener on the other side" nonsense.

It all depends on the family. Some families use a lot of discipline, some don't. If anything, it's the school system in Japan which breaks kids down into conformists through strict rules, and through stamping out individualism. Which is why most Japanese kids are afraid to answer questions in class or draw attention to themselves as are most Japanese adults.

If you see conformity as a strength, then by all means, berate your child every time they get the wrong answer and call them fools, as the teachers do in Japan. Children have reported to me that they have been called "Baka" by their teachers and their classmates when they give the wrong answer. I'm not making that up.
