Parent’s cry for help


We have watched a mother —a parent—fighting the world to teach her child what is right. We criticise her for her methods, but what is she to do? Who is standing at the side of this soldier who fights alone, teaching her children moral values? No one.



Who can she go to for help? Did someone say the family can speak to a priest, pastor, counsellor? Who has come out in her defence? Have we heard from any religious organisation? No? Why?



The PM mentions possibly passing legislation to protect children from those types of beatings in the home. 



What about passing legislation to stop playing music with obscene language? 



We as a society have failed both mother and daughter.
