Breastfeeding peer support group – Day two
‘Gaining knowledge on our roles & responsibilities in relation to safeguarding children and young people’- OSCB
I found todays session very interesting & also upsetting to hear the statistics on abuse towards children. It saddens me to hear such vile things are happening everyday to such innocent young souls. We discussed our views on this topic, and respectively listened to our mentor when talking us through this valuable information. We spoke about indications of abuse, and the definitions of abuse, and when to act. we spoke about the types of abuse, physical, emotional, sexual etc and who we should seek advice from if we feel the need to do so in order to protect someone.
Its absolutely unbelievable that each week ONE child dies from cruelty.
This just isn’t acceptable. If in anyway, shape or form I can help towards the prevention from that – I will strive to help. Children are meant to feel safe, Especially within their own home. Not to live in fear and feel like they’re worth nothing.
