I know mate, that article just stuck in my head as a mad situation.
Agree, my wife's a teacher and she's told me stories of kids that come to school and don't know how to smile, because nobody has ever smiled at them or given any attention. Loads that don't know how to use the toilet or brush their teeth. Women with multiple kids taken off them and Facebook posts like "love my kids so much, would do anything for them" (except raise them properly). Must be so much more going on we don't hear about.
