A report by Sheen McDonald. Discussed on BBC radio Scotland’s Ask Kaye. That child sexual abuse has not changed in 25 years.
Are they using the right methods of detection?
You would need to be a fly on the wall to spot child sexual abuse because it goes on behind closed doors. Grandparents are excellent for early detection of child abuse because of their unique insight to their own family’s shortcomings. The Charter for Grandchildren could help save a lot of these kids by recognising more the important role grandparents can play in children’s lives. they are the only people with half a chance to put a spot abuse. It is well known that children confide in their grandparents for all sort of things, usually childish but our grandparents have spotted abuse and must be heeded more by social services.
