PLEASE HELP WHAT DO I DO? Verbal abuse from parents to a child
Child is being severely verbally abused by her father and denied a bed and other comforts when he considers that she has done something wrong which is all the time she is only 15 I have attempted to speak to her counselor and other 'authority' figures they are either reporting everything the child says to her parents or have informed me that they have no intention of assisting the child and getting her into a better situation. She is frightened and does not want me to contact the local child service center but I think that may be the only option I have short of attempting to speak to the parents which has so far resulted in the possibility of her being sent to an even worse environment where physical abuse is at a higher risk despite her father raising his hand to slap her this very morning. Please someone I need advice.
