JAPAN: Supreme Court of Japan makes DVD about the impact of divorce on children. Should it be required viewing?

JAPAN SUPREME COURT MAKES DVD FOR DIVORCING COUPLES ABOUT THE IMPACT OF DIVORCE ON CHILDREN
The Japan Times is reporting that the Supreme Court of Japan recently produced a number of DVDs that aim to inform divorcing parents about the impact of divorce on children. The DVDs are called, What couples with children must think about when they divorce. These videos are in most courts in Japan but can only be viewed with court permission. But should viewing these DVDs be mandatory? Some in Japan think so. Evidently, 1 out of 4 Japanese children are affected by divorce at some point. While the courts generally follow the “best interest of the child” model, it is still largely a matriarchal society where the mother usually gets custody. Many father, according to the report in the Japan Times stop paying child support because the mother won’t allow him to see the kids. This is obviously not great for the children who are at the receiving end of their parents’ grudges. So many feel that the DVDs should be mandatory viewing in all divorce cases in Japan. What do you think? Would viewing a DVD about the impact of divorce on children sway parents into being more cooperative with each other, post-divorce, for the sake of the children? And if so, should this be just in Japan? Or in the whole world?
