“Raise our allowance!”
“Extend summer vacation!”
22 children from Nerima’s Kami-Shakuji Children’s Center in Tokyo took to the streets in a “Children’s Pride” demonstration after writing their own demands on placards.
The Children’s Center is linked to an artist’s studio that helps the children with these activities. The aim, say the artists, is to raise awareness of their feelings in society.
As they approached a yakitori stand on the corner, one child abruptly changed his chant to, “I want to eat yakitori!”, “I want to eat yakitori!”, as adults on the street observed the spectacle warmly.

What exactly was the point of this exercise?
What are the kids supposed to feel like they achieved?

Does this mean there’s some adult out there eager to teach kids that they can get what they want by whining [gonedoku]?
