Brilliant and Bold ISPCC Campaign

Kids are good fun. They're easily amused too. For example, once you have a one year old convinced that every time they wrap their little fist around your index finger, you have to bark like a dog - and you don't particularly like it - it always brings a smile to their face, and that's your whole afternoon set. You can cancel all of your appointments and switch off your phone.

You can talk to a two year old and for whatever reason, you end up counting stuff, and you're all "One, two, three, four" and then the kid says "Nine" and that's not quite right, of course.

But even wronger is dissin' the little sprogs.

For example saying something like

Or what about

Apparently, these epithets are mild compared to what has been said to the kids who are lookng for help.

The ISPCC (the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) has launched a campaign highlighting emotional abuse. Click the links below to check out some of the campaign.
