    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...

    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?

    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...
