    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...

    I know some of you guys hate Facebook, but at the moment, we're all changing our avatars to our favourite cartoon characters to bring attention to child abuse/violence. On the 6th of December, they're hoping to get everyone to change their photos, so it's full of memories and not...

    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...

    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?

    Think...

    There is no biggest and scariest darkness for a child than the lack of respect for his rights. A child has the right to be a child, be treated with love and respect. It is the mankind‘s responsability to respect it. „It is the duty of all to watch over the dignity of...

    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...
