Western countries are littered with young ALT's that came here with the outdated belief that kids in Japan are somehow different and more well behaved than in other countries and were, as a result, traumatized and disrespected to the point that they asked out after their 1st year of a 2 year stay because they couldn't take it anymore or they wanted to start killing kids.
The education system is very patient and the rivalry between the P.T.A's and Teacher Assoc has turned the adult level communication toxic and they supply teachers with handbooks on how to deal with "Monster Parents" More "Monster Parents"

Oh....oh yeah...FUCK THIS!!!
Been dealing with Japanese kids for some years now and I gotta say that outside of the ones I teach and have some influence over...you can burn the rest. Especially Junior High Boys. Burn them first.

The birth of a "complex"
"Luke" was the name of a Great Dane that we had. The picture above is spookily similar. He used to sleep in my bed and have nightmares that were so bad he'd kick me off the bed until I gave up and slept on the floor.
He was heavier than me when I was 8-10 years old and walking him was an adventure to say the least.
One morning I woke up before School...late...again...and just outside my door was Luke who had taken a massive Great Dane sized dump in the hall. He was moaning and he saw me but I just scolded him and was on my way.
