Homework is always stressors for children and also for parents. Six years old boy in China had grotesque scars on his back. His mother beat him for the reason that he refused to do homework.
One of his nursery teachers found it when he changed clothes for the gym class. She was so surprised at his horrible wounds. She took a picture as a evidence and reported the authorities.
The boy told local police that his mother beat him with a wire hanger because he refused to do homework. His parents were also asked by the police and they admitted the fact that the mother beat him. But the police decided not punishing the parents and just told his mother not to beat her child so severely in future.
The picture is the one taken by the teacher. She decided to put it on SNS after she found that the parents would not be punished at all. The police told the teacher that the boy was taken to the hospital but the wounds were not so bad. The red marks just looked furious.
There was another case last year in China. Chinese mother beat her 9-year-old foster son for not doing his homework and she got a six-month jail sentence.
The boy was adopted from her nephew who lives in rural area so that he could get a better education. He was beaten with a skip rope.
He returned to his biological parents after the woman was arrested.
There is another sad news in Japan. A boy was stabbed by his father because the father was so angry at him for not studying.
The boy was one of the top students in his six-grade classroom and was going to take an entrance examination of a top level junior high school which is combined with high school where around 20 students go to Tokyo University every year.
The school was the same one where the father used to go. The father was expected to be a pharmacist in order to take over his parents. However he became a truck driver. So he expected his son too much.
We can see many parents who give a pressure to their children, but he was short tempered. His personality could not stop his anger. Now the boy’s father lost his beloved son and never has an opportunity to tell him to study more.
