This blog is necessarily anonymous. Protecting the identity of the children I work with is legally and morally paramount and, for the same reasons, I must also protect the identities of my colleagues. I will change any and all identifying details. Otherwise it is intended as a “warts and all” view of life in a residential children’s home and related matters of interest to me. But it is, of course, only my view and all opinions are mine. If you disagree with them then try to change my mind with informed, well-argued comments.
