    This. I would also be ringing their schools and requesting interviews via phone or skype to discuss your concerns. This is abuse and a school will be mandated to report. Don't let distance stop you from reporting to the authorities. Your mum having her head in the sand also makes her complicit in my book.

    I imagine the poor girl would be terrified to report the incident to police without any support or anywhere else to go. I think I would be too scared. What if they brush it off and he takes it out on her? I'm not saying it shouldn't be reported but I understand her hesitation. I would find out about their child welfare system & urge the kids to speak to a school counsellor. I would also recommend they keep diaries of this ar*eholes behavior to build a case against him if needed. I can't believe your mum allows her children to be treated this way & other adults (uncle) are doing nothing to stop it. It is so unfair. I feel for you as we'll, I think I'd be getting over there ASAP to see what is really going on.

    That's what I'm worried about. Especially with me being in a different country and not able to properly protect them.. I'll talk to her about the school counsellor option - she might be happier to do that and then they would have to report it I guess? I've already told her to make sure they keep a proper diary of everything.

    Hopefully if the counsellors are like here they will have to report but hopefully also be able to give them some support. Good luck & let us know how it goes!
