    How frustrating! Keep reporting to both the police and social services every single time you hear abuse. Every time. As frustrating as it may be when you're concerns are ignored by authorities, surely they can't keep ignoring if it happens over and over. Someone needs to be the voice for these children xox

    DV has lifelong effects on children and changes who they grow up to be and cope in the world as adults. Don't ever question whether you should intervene! Good on you for caring and trying to help.

    Such a let down.
    To add more BS to the situation - the parents got into it pretty bad yesterday and both the kids were screaming in terror. I called 000 and waited all afternoon and evening for an officer to come and investigate and help.
    Do you think they even showed up??
    What is wrong with this system?
    That's report nr 2 to docs then... Another one to go.
