The arrest of two local mothers for allegedly murdering their young children raises the question: Is enough being done to prevent child abuse?
The recent cases involved kids age 5 and 2 - one scalded with water, the other severely beaten. We know that one mother had been through parenting classes and had been under the eye of social workers and child protection agencies but the safety nets failed. Is it time for some new approaches to child abuse prevention? Regina Brett and guests look for answers, Friday morning at 9 on 90.3. *photos courtesy The Plain Dealer
