    This could include deliberately ignoring a child, or not showing them any love, over prolonged periods, damaging a child’s emotional development."

    Well I am all for this! Maybe not jail time but mandatory parenting classes at least. Growing up in this kind of household makes a child suicidal from a young age (my experience.)

    Legislation for this issue comes far too late. They should have done this 30 years ago. They will intervene if there's 'domestic violence' but if it's cruelty, lack of love or no physical affection whatsoever then nothing is done.
