Just wanted to add, in my opinion, if u don't teach your children how to take care of themselves that is not doing well by them either. Do u really think it's a good thing when a child reaches 18 and doesn't know how to work a washing machine? Yes, a parent has a legal responsibility to care for a child. But a parents real job is to prepare a child to live a good life and teach them how to take care of him/herself. Once I got a job at 15, I even paid for my own clothes, school supplies, basically everything except food. My parents didn't have a lot of money. I wasn't abused. Let's face it, kids today are babied and pampered too much. They think the world revolves around them.

As for the physical abuse, maybe u need to find out the facts before reporting the parents. Being a parent is not easy. Be real sure of the story before assuming anything.
