I continue to be unnerved when I read sad stories about children being abused.
The latest story is that of the Turpin family whose parents are facing more than 70 charges of torture and child abuse.
It has been called the House of Horrors, additionally charges have been laid of felony assault on the mother.
Children should feel safe with their parents, but this is not always the case. Time and time again abusive parents are being uncovered.
It is our civil and moral duty to be aware of child abuse. Keep vigilance around you. If you feel abuse is happening in your street or within your circle of friends, then do the right thing and report it to the authorities.
Child abuse should not happen, we must protect our children, they are our future.
