Being involved in child protection, you see people torture their children and it is traumatizing.

It’s gets worse if you witness the impact trauma and terror have on a child in your caseload and you watch school and peer failure and how a child’s life is destined to play out.

Unhealthy children become unhealthy adults.

Caregivers harming children are troubled people that have suffered their own long-term traumas who did not get the help they needed to live a normal life.

It’s at least understandable when a broken adult proves to be incapable of keeping a child safe from harm.
