Children are NOT the same as adults!
People often get VERY upset with me when I make comparisons between what we consider as unacceptable between adults and yet allow between adults and children. It makes absolutely NO sense to offer more protection to an adult than it does to a child.
- Children have under developed brains and are constantly learning from those around them.
- Children are totally dependent upon the emotional and physical interactions and care those in control of them dispense.
- Young children are trapped with those who raise them, powerless to ask for help or leave.
- Children rely upon legislation and the protection of the State to safeguard their physical AND mental safety and well-being.
