Child Abuse

It is shocking to read about the rise in the number of child abuse cases, and pertinently of cases of neglect among children. There are vast differences in the style of parenting among cultures, but the essence of parenthood is to raise emotionally, mentally and physically healthy children. So how can parents then have such a cavalier approach to their own children, and for that matter towards other children as well? It is good that the UAE government recognises the need for a law that protects rights of children.
