I’ve just read this shocking report. There is little more sick-making than wealthy people who actively seek to hurt their children’s physical, emotional and spiritual health and future prospects through their own greed and malice.
“Gingerbread published an extensive report titled ‘Children Deserve More’ to expose the ease with which parents could wriggle out of payments for the upbringing of children they no longer live with. In one of its case studies, two daughters had grown up without proper maintenance from their rich father. After years of fighting for it, they eventually took the law into their own hands and successfully sued him for their university tuition fees (calculated to cost up to £55,500). The youngest was congratulated on having won a place at Oxford by the judge (but not by her father, who had left the family home when she was eight).” – Charlotte Edwardes
