The number of child abuse in Japan recorded statistically the largest number of child abuse

Two cases of child abuse death in Nishi-ku, Osaka-shiYaNishiyodogawa Ward child abuse caseAs child abuse cases that are too gruesome and sad are reported one after another, it became clear that the number of child abuse recorded in the first half of 2010 was the highest number ever.

Compared to foreign countries Japan has strong image of security, but now it is not boasting of good security, as the necessity to strengthen the safety in the closed space of the home is very high I can feel it.

Details are as below. Statistical data announced by the National Police Agency on August 6 "(PDF file)Outline of juvenile delinquency etc. (First half of 2010)"You can see the increase in the number of abuses. The number of cases cleared for child abuse cases in the first half of each fiscal year has been increasing since FY 2001, which is shown in the table, and this fiscal year also increased by 15.3% compared with the previous year.

There were 18 incidents of deaths of abused children compared to the previous year, but the number of cases itself is decreasing compared to the previous years. The figures in parentheses are the number of case that aimed at so-called impossibility, but in recent years it tends to decrease gradually, and the number of newborn abandonment etc. in [] is decreasing more than before . In other words, while cases of child death are decreasing, it is speculated that the case itself to be cleared for abuse is increasing.

Statistical content of what kind of charges the guards arrested for child abuse were arrested. While most of the figures are flat, only "injuries" including injury or death are increasing clearly, and the number of cases that were two digits finally reached 3 digits at the end.

Status of victim children by age and sex. Even if we go back to the past, abuse for children under 1 year is the most common in both men and women. The breakdown of gender is only for 2010, but when you look at it, it is almost half of the sexes, so it seems that either male or female is not likely to be susceptible to abuse. However, at the age of 15 and over, the number of girls being abused is large, so if you are a boy you can also think that you can compete against violence with strength in this age.

"(PDF file) announced by the National Police Agency on August 12, which will be about one week after the above statistics,Overview of guidance and protection of juveniles in 2009"States that the number of abuse cases was the highest since 1999 when we began taking statistics on child abuse at the stage of last year's 2009 fiscal year. I pray that the number of abuses for the full year of this year will be reduced, but since I can not hope to improve the situation naturally simply by praying, the Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare visits the child guidance center and is working on grasping the current situation, In the following articles, you can also see that there are abuses that exceed the limit of personnel at the consultation office.

Labor minister Heiwa inspected at child guidance center "In a society without abuse": Society: YOMIURI ONLINE (Yomiuri Shimbun)

At the child consultation office, a staff member said, "We responded early in the morning, at night, on Saturdays and Sundays, we have more than 100 incidents per staff, but we can not respond precisely without 20 to 30 cases". "I want to make it a society without abuses based on the indications," he said.

Toru Hashigashita, Governor of Osaka Prefecture, as a countermeasure against abuse, requested that the nationwide common dial to the child guidance center be too long for the current 10 digits and request dialing in 3 digits like 110, according to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare It is said that it submitted it.
Chunichi Newspaper: Simply requesting the abuse notification dial to the country with the name of the governor Hashiguchi: Society (CHUNICHI Web)

In the request form, the governor himself pointed out that it is "hard to memorize and difficult to remember" as a voice from the citizens heard. Although it is said that it will take billions of yen for system setting etc. Although cost is a bottleneck, "From the situation of the country's debt outstanding amount of 900 trillion yen, I do not feel that it is so big as expenses to save the life of the child responsible for the future It is appealing that.

In an article reported about Japanese abuse abroadIn Mr. Masami Kimura who is moving for the prevention of abuse, "There is a tendency in Japan that the law should not enter the circumstances of the family", and it is true that the matter of the family is a public institution It is also a fact that there is an atmosphere that other people, including others, are unlikely to step in.

However, in recent years, the report of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as mentioned above increased the number of reports to the child guidance center, and as a result, the number of cases cleared for child abuse increased and became not just a figure. The view that is also possible. It is not necessarily possible to criticize by an obscure basis such as "Recent young people can not raise children."

It is the weakest position and it is safe outside the house if children and parents such as parents are bumped into frustration and dissatisfied, so to speak, they are made to function as "sores" so to speak. But it makes no sense at all. Of course, we are waiting for measures against child abuse, but we are also waiting for calls to all those who can become parents and improvements in social situation.
