Another terrible case of abuse - innocent children who never asked to be born. This is happening far to often in society as a whole and we should all
be more alert to anything out of place in our neighbourhoods - though this is a very difficult issue to address as innocent Parents can and do get
accused of abuse when a complete misunderstanding has taken place.
What is the answer???? I wish I knew - apart from more checks on families by astute well trained individuals who aren't Power Hungry and have ways
of recognizing abuse when they see it, then double checking before alerting. Even schools weighing children on a regular basis would surely highlight
possible neglect (possible).
Another thing I always get concerned about is when families move out of an area. I myself have had many moves and when my kids were young no one ever
checked afterward to see if we had gone where we said we were going - I would not have minded one bit if they had and think this should be standard
practice. Too many kids fall through the safety net - we have to find better and more effective ways of protecting them.
