This company provides insurance for children’s mischief in school
We know about companies providing insure for health, vehicle, travel and home, but the Yale Company of Japan is insuring children for such an insurance in which children’s bullying will be insured.
Although it seems strange but if we believe a few media reports this is true. Due to its unique insurance, the company remains the subject of discussion throughout the country. It is a rare thing to witness that a company provides insurance for children’s mischief.
Under the insurance if children are injured in fighting each other in school, then the company will take care of their treatment. Not only this, if the parents have to face a charge in the court in case any other child’s parents register a case, the company will also pay the fees for trial.
The Company claims that it is the first company in the world to provide such insurance. According to research done by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, 4.1 million cases related to children’s bullying were reported in primary, secondary and higher schools in 2017. In 2018, this number increased to five lakhs out of which about two and a half million cases were serious.
The company believes that parents who buy this insurance will not need to worry about their children. From time to time parents can seek advice from company lawyers and experts.
While some parents are happy with this insurance, some have opposed it as they are of the opinion that the company is promoting children to continue doing mischief in the school through this insurance. They think that after taking such insurance, parents will stop bothering about their children bullying at school which will have a bad effect on the kids.
