I do wonder what the total damage to our vulnerable children through insidious child abuse is New Zealand ? The breakdown of the family and the destruction of bonds of genuine and loving child/biological parent relationships caused through fatherlessness has placed the children of the Western World in a tragic situation .
The total eradication of the child abuse problems within society should be a priority for a clear headed and caring government . Why is government and society letting our children down ?

Women's Aid has reported a 29% increase in the number of child abuse incidents reported to its national helpline last year.
The organisation says cases reported to the helpline included an abuser urinating on a child, a child being kicked in the stomach, children being beaten and being exposed to rape.
Five per cent of the reported incidents happened during access visits and 20% of abusers were ex-husbands or ex-partners of the child's mother.
