Only after I entered college did I learn of my rights. I then determined to immediately report any abuse directly to the authorities, and I expected them to support me.The teaching of our rights in the schools of the Western world is sadly lacking and needs to change. Otherwise more of our abusive, violent children will become abusive, violent adults.
