The baby girl died of dehydration at home alone, but the Japanese people”supported” her mother. How difficult is it for the mothers?
Recently, a tragedy of child abuse and death occurred in Japan.
A 30-year-old single mother left her 3-month-old daughter at home alone for more than 16 hours and went out to work by herself. When the mother returned home, she found that her daughter had been in a coma due to lack of water. After being sent to the hospital, the baby girl was finally declared dead.
During further investigation by the police, details of the case gradually surfaced.
in the suspect Friends and others confirmed that the 30-year-old single mother Ai Sakamoto had no previous convictions for abusing her daughter.
Because the child was born out of wedlock, the father of the baby girl has never participated in parenting and has not paid any fees. Because Sakamoto Ai gave birth to her daughter at home, she did not go through procedures such as the maternal and child handbook that can apply for subsidies, and the child does not have a household registration.
In the process of raising children alone, Sakamoto Ai has worked in restaurants and other places in order to supplement the family.
But after the outbreak this year, many stores no longer hire temporary workers. After paying 70,000 yen for the rent, nothing is left. In addition, there has been no contact with her mother’s family for a long time, and the burden of raising the child has to be borne by Sakamoto Ai alone. In order to earn household income, Sakamoto Ai recently started working in a nightclub.
On the day of the case, Yuan Ai Saka went out to work after setting up her daughter. Unexpectedly, the high temperature extreme weather at the end of July, the indoor temperature soared. The baby girl cried at home alone without timely replenishment, causing a large amount of water shortage in the body and causing electrolyte disorders, which eventually led to death.
The news comes out , Immediately sparked heated discussions from all walks of life in Japan. I thought that many people would blame this single mother for being irresponsible. But what is unexpected is that a large number of Japanese people unanimously speak for her. There were tens of thousands of comments on the Internet for her support in just a few days.
All the supportive comments also revolved around the same center:”Please pay attention to these lonely single mothers, don’t let the tragedy happen again!”
raise the newborn to three months It’s really not easy. Without the support of family members, I think this mother was born and raised by herself. It is really amazing.
I have to go out to work, or to the point where I don’t have food if I don’t work.
She has also worked very hard on raising the baby, otherwise she would not try to raise her to 3 months old, and the diapers and baby clothes are also neatly dressed. She really loves children. If she is convicted as a suspect in this way, I think she is very pitiful. If you meet someone you can rely on, you can take care of your children.
In the hospital How painful the child was in labor, and it was also very hard after delivery. Everyone has experienced this kind of anxiety, but this mother did not rely on anyone or ask for help. A child was born to three months old. It must be sad to raise children while working.
If the baby does not have a household registration, the administrative department cannot confirm her existence.
No matter how perfect the system is, it is difficult to avoid such a tragedy.
The father should also bear the same responsibility.
As of the day of publication, the voice of support for Ai Sakamoto on the Japanese Internet is still expanding. Many Japanese housewives commented on the news about their difficulties as single mothers and full-time housewives with housework and widowhood.
In fact, this is not the first time that a Japanese housewife has come forward to support female criminal suspects.
September 2019, a single mother in Sendai, Japan Because there was no money to buy milk powder, the two-month-old twin sons were fed with water vegetable juice, which caused his brother to starve to death.
After being arrested by the police, the mother of this list admitted that because of insufficient breast milk and no money to buy milk powder, she was forced to feed her son with water vegetable juice. When asked about the child’s father, she kept silent because she didn’t know where the other party was going.
2018 love In the prefecture, a full-time mother named Matsushita Garden fell 11-month-old second son to the ground and died, and was sentenced to 3 years and 6 months in prison.
30 years old Matsushita Garden was originally suffering from infertility, and after a series of painstaking treatments, she successfully became pregnant with triplets.
But after the child was born, the responsibility of raising the three children fell on her. Husband and family members all stood by and did not interfere.
The breastfeeding of three children alone requires 24 feedings a day. The three children who often wake up from crying in the middle of the night need to be comforted one by one. Coupled with other housework such as changing diapers, only one hour of sleep is left in the day at Matsushita Park.
originally half a year The husband on parental leave, because he can’t change diapers or coax children, he just waited leisurely for her at home.
In Matsushita Garden, which was tortured by both parenting and housework, the postpartum depression became more and more serious, which eventually led to this tragedy.
After the above two cases occurred, the netizens who initially asked for”severe punishment” for them began to change their attitudes after seeing the details of the cases.
There are many more people who initiated a petition to sign their probation on the Internet.
“…At the same time Take care of 3 babies… This requires husband, parents, and in-laws to work together!”
“…When you finally become a prisoner, the world begins to realize the pain you have endured.”
After reading every message on the Internet carefully, you can understand that only these housewives who have also experienced difficulties can truly empathize and have the ability to empathize.
“Women are weak, mothers are strong” This phrase is used to describe mothers braving the wind and waves. However, they must bear the financial pressure and burden of raising children alone. , Or take care of the housework and raise the children alone without external help.
Once this causes tragedy, all the responsibilities will be attributed to them, and the father, who was also responsible for the heavy responsibility, is completely hidden.
if it can be weak , Who wants to be strong.
At the same time, I also hope that all walks of life can focus on the mothers of these disadvantaged groups and don’t let this tragedy happen again.
