    The situation seems to be on the increase. With abuse
    In all walks of life.

    • Maria says:

      Don’t think it’s on the increase – just talked about more and so much more of life coming under the umbrella now of ‘abuse’. Interfering sexually with children or bashing them up is just simply appalling, immoral and often an abuse of power – an adult against a young, vulnerable child.
