    I'm A Child Protection Worker

    I work everyday with abusers and the abused. It often seems that my efforts result in little and it becomes very disheartning. I have to take the small successes and use them to push me to continue- I wish I could do more, I wish I had more impact- I wish it didn't seem like such...

    Something Useful

    Here's something that might be useful. When we train to become teachers, we're constantly bombarded with all of this information, plus more, so we're constantly aware of what could be going on. But the biggest sign of all, is knowing the child inside out and noticing any slight...

    Stop Child Abuse

    As a victim myself, I would want to help stop child abuse.  Everyday abuse takes place and it needs being stopped somehow.  These psycho's have a sick mind.  The question is how do we do it?

    Child Abuse

    I explained my story in another group "I Don't Love my Mother," so you can read about it there. I feel I would be a different person today if I had not been abused. I envy people who had normal childhoods. Parents that were together, no abuse, even if things weren't perfect at...

    Don't Be Afraid

    It can be very hard to know when to interfere in a situation.   Sometimes we can think we ought not to get involved.  This can be for many reasons - perhaps for fear of recrimination, making a mistake or just being reluctant to stick our heads up above the parapet...
