Free read Mind the Child The Victoria Line

Y heard from in our media the parts least served by investment and by public transport The stations of the Victoria Line are some of the few on the Underground to weave into the capital's most neglected areas south and east London but even they stop abruptly at the relatively central points of Brixton at one end Walthamstow at the other Here the children bring us beyond these arbitrary cut offs into the vast stretches of the metropolis they call home They want us to. The book Mind The ChildThe authors Camila Batmanghelidjh and the young people of Kids Company a charity that supports vulnerable children in LondonThe subject A mix of testimony from young people facts about the effects of child abuse and how to help those affected by itWhy I chose it I admire the work that this charity does as well as what its founder Batmanghelidjh has to say I was also planning a while ago to read all the books in this series then completely forgot until I found the full set in my local libraryThe rating Four and a half out of five starsWhat I thought of it As you can probably guess this book is uite harrowing at times I read it in a couple of sittings and after the first felt utterly downhearted by what I d read about the awful things that so many children and young people experience often at the hands of those meant to protect them However it is also a very important book and I m glad I read it It has spurred me on to want to make a difference in whatever way I canThere is a lot of detail about the effects that negative experiences in childhood have on developing brains It dispels the myth that these young people are inherently bad and shows how effective simple love and care as practised by Kids Company can be as opposed to condemnation and punishment This is very interesting but the best parts of this book are the parts written by young people I m so glad that they were given a voice and could tell their stories It s upsetting and angering to think how many underground children are still out there in this cityI recommend this if you care at all about children being mistreated I also wish that those in power could read it and take away some lessons about empathy and kindness towards those who have a hard enough time already without being demonised It isn t right that groups like Kids Company have to struggle for fundingJust one thing Here is Kids Company s website if you want to find out or donate
