Quote of the Week!

Regarding the ‘Kahui Law’ proposed this week where extended family and close friends of child abusers could face up to 10 years in prison if they turn a blind eye to abuse and do not report it…

Plunket’s not convinced prosecution is the right approach. “We’re quite good at criticising people, we’re quite good at telling people when they’ve done wrong, but we’re not so good at supporting people,” says Plunket clinical advisor Alison Hussey.

Remember the anti-smacking law debate! Why were they so keen to criminalise good parents who use a smack, but not rotten parents and family members who observe and hide actual child abuse e.g. Nia Glassie, Kahui twins etc
