The Children are not being heard.
Many children grow up and go through a school system, sacrificed in
the pressure to conform to behavioural and curriculum standards, goaded on by their
parents to fulfil parental demands and expectations without any regard to the conflicts
and turmoil that are set into play within the psyche of the child.
The lack of address to the right of the child to its own integrity,
the destruction of faith and self esteem are seen as the major contributing factor in the
increase of behavioural problems, learning difficulties and so-called psychiatric
It is also this lack of worth which is manifesting as an increase in
the statistics of child suicides - particularly males.
The children who do survive grow up with this lack of personal
integrity through a period of disturbed adolescence to an adulthood where conformity is
desired despite the personal inner struggle which ends in a traumatic lingering death.
