PAIRING CUT OUTS OF CHILDREN WITH POLITICIANS – BUDDY DAY AIMS TO STOP CHILD ABUSE
According to Stuff.Co.NZ, “Child Matters spokeswoman Rachel McGuire said by pairing up the buddies (cardboard cutouts of children) with politicians, business owners and other high profile members of the community it was hoped the inaugural event would open up more discussion about child abuse.
Given the issue of child abuse, dominating headlines in the USA the past week like a storm in a tea cup across US media outlets as played out in the Penn State story, I think this strategy is brilliant. If you don’t talk about child abuse it increases. Talking about it, flushes it out.
I think the greatest form of child abuse occurring today, is in factoring middle-to-poor children, out of economic budgets. It creates an environment where children are exploited already at the expense of a few selfish wealthy people, which than manifests itself in gross acts against children, because this example of child exploitation was already pre-set from the top.
We need to watch those who balance the books, on this issue.
Stop child abuse, allocate enough resources to children. All children, not just a few.
