My dad is a member of the Children's Panel in the UK. They make decisions regarding abused and/or troubled children, so he sees horror stories beyond imagining nearly every week. Since he is in contact with the kids who get abused, news like this just breaks him.
Let me just say that I'm very impressed by his work. He has to be extremely strong to engage with that kind of thing on a regular basis.
Thanks! I'm very proud of him, he's a great role model.
Fair play to the guy.
I know dealing with stuff like that would break me.
