In the news this week: a mother in court for leaving her fourteen year old daughter at home for six weeks while she went off abroad to see a boyfriend. Sadly, this didn't surprise me when I read about it. Far too frequently than anyone would like, I'm told by a child that their parents are abroad on holiday and they are in the care of somebody they are quite vague about. Who is looking out for them?
