A Child's Welfare Is a Public Concern

In just a week we have  heard more about the Rochdale grooming and how the female victims were blamed, people turning a blind eye to what Jimmy Saville did to girls and a father killing his own children in an act of domestic violence.

What society and the authorities need to realise is that it 'takes a village' to raise a child. All the present circumstances justify this thinking. It has been scorned by neo-liberal right wing types who would blame a stray rabbit that came into their garden for being attacked by their pet dog.

The well being of a child isn't just  about gang violence and street fights. It is about challenging attitudes towards girls, the blame culture and helping mothers who are in abusive relationships because their children inevitably suffer.
