If the government bans smoking it doesn't necessarily mean they are preventing it, it just means it's not legal. However if they were to remove anything that can be smoked they are preventing it from happening. Overall, ban, forbid and prohibit are basically synonyms for each other with slight differences.

    2. Most of the parents, who killed their children, said they spanked children as part of discipline. This is something forbidden. Unfortunately, these kinds of incidents have happened in Japan frequently. I heard the news that a 10-year-old girl was killed by her parents. She was abused on a daily basis, and videos of abusing her were found in her father’s cellular phone. This news was sorrowful and shocked me. It was widely reported in Japan. Therefore, every time I heard this news, my chest felt tight because it made me think about how this little girl was feeling and how she was spending awful days. Sometimes I struggle with disciplining my own children. I have been against spanking, but I know how people feel towards spanking their children. Therefore, I have conflicting feelings about “spanking.” I needed to find clear disadvantages of spanking in order to avoid spanking my children. Just a few grammar errors but otherwise it is good

    2. [I recently] read Mishima Yukio's essay. Though it was written over half a century [ago], it [states], "Recently, bullying among children has become an important problem." [Despite being written] over 50 years ago, [it is clear that] the same problem [existed then as it does now]. In his essay, Mishima suggests an interesting solution. He says that it's not (effective) to forbid children to bully because they would (--) want to bully all the more if bullying (were) forbidden. Thus, we [should] rather encourage them to bully, [but] not to bully [just] anyone. There're some people who prefer being treated badly. Therefore, children should find such people and bully them. I (partly agree) with Mishima*. Encouraging (bullying) is a new idea for me and I'm for it. But I'm against [his other arguments]. I don't think there are always [people who want to be bullied]. Nevertheless, I know people (we can bully who will never complain and are always with us). They're characters in novels, cartoons, or animations. Children should bully the imaginary instead of the real. I propose they insult Dazai Osamu's characters. I'm sure that [the] deceased Mishima would agree completely on [this point]. (note: Mishima* hated Dazai) *corrected spelling
