Stuff has a story from the Sydney Morning Herald about the killing of six year old Kiesha Weippart by her mother.
It’s a very long story, giving all the background of the family, and the mother especially. Very very sad.
I read the story twice, and tried to think of how you would stop what happened, happening in future, short of a parenting licence.
It is easy to vilify the mother, and she deserves it. But also easy to feel sorry for her, as she has had such a wretched life herself with her mother dead at 10, constant domestic violence, and her father abandoning her.Tags: child abuse
