japanese kids

I got to read this sweet and most interesting piece.
’Why Japanese Kids can walk to school alone’

’Taking responsibility for shared spaces means that children have pride of ownership and understand in a concrete way the consequences of making a mess,
since they’ll have to clean it up themselves.
This ethic extends to public space more broadly (one reason Japanese streets are generally so clean).
A child out in public knows he can rely on the group to help in an emergency.’

 

….
I realized later , we will never get that future in my country.
That time has passed long time ago.
