People who were raped as children often faced secondary victimisation when those in whom they confided reacted in a non-supportive manner, a researcher said on Tuesday.

Steven Collings, from the University of KwaZulu-Natal's School of Psychology, was speaking at the conference of the SA Professional Society on the Abuse of Children which is being held at the University of Pretoria.

Thousands of children are suffering abuse, neglect and problems at school as a result of their parents' ill health, a study has shown.

University of Edinburgh researchers studied about 9,000 calls made to ChildLine Scotland over four years. They found youngsters struggling to cope with cancer, depression and drug and alcohol abuse within their family. The study revealed that children found it difficult to get help and were often subjected to violence.

A bitter standoff between the parents of a 12-year-old and Texas social workers and doctors over radiation treatment ended on Friday on a somber note with a medical report that the girl's Hodgkin's disease, which had seemed in remission, had reappeared.

The parents, Michele and Edward Wernecke, lost custody of their daughter Katie a week ago, after opposing radiation therapy as unnecessary. When the new test results were announced at a hearing in juvenile court, the parents quickly complied and agreed through their lawyers to let doctors set the course of treatment, which could resume in days.

Parents are being warned they could be electronically tagged if they allow their children to play truant.

It comes after Barbara Woodall, 34, of Goldfinch Drive, Bury, Greater Manchester, was given a curfew over the behaviour of her two teenage daughters. She was tagged as part of the curfew after admitting two aggravated offences she knowingly allowed the absences.

Members of law enforcement, Child Protective Services and the Sacramento County Probation Department conducted a truancy sweep Thursday. The goal was to get children back in school.

Officials visited the homes of parents whose children haven't been showing up for school. They called it a "knock and talk." Officers warned parents that if their child continued to be truant, arrest warrants could be issued. Authorities said they are trying to make a difference.

Scotlands's homeless population has soared to an all-time high, with the Executive's new policy on vagrancy prompting homeless applications from one in every 100 Scots.

An analysis by The Scotsman reveals the number officially counted as homeless by Scotland’s 32 local authorities has doubled over the last 10 years and jumped by 24 per cent since devolution.

Like the growing numbers passing through social services each month, Crowe is up against a wall that is a distinct structure of the poor. By losing her home, she's lost the privilege of choice.

Jolly said DSS does not place people but rather determines what rent amount they are entitled to. The agency will find them a home, he said. But people are free to search for an apartment on their own, as long as it does not cost more than the rent voucher. Crowe found an apartment in Middletown that was $114 per month more than the $735 that DSS allotted her.

A Lapdancer called Peaches stripped off for a customer who slipped 20 pounds in her G-string - unaware he was an undercover government investigator.

Julieanne Beecher earned up to 300 pounds a week dancing for businessmen at the same time as claiming state benefits. And a DSS fraud detective was sent on a secret mission to mingle with male customers at The Fantasy Lounge.

The deaths of three children in Rock Hill at the hands of at least one of their parents have prompted an audit of the Department of Social Services.

The board that runs the state Legislative Audit Council voted Wednesday to review how DSS handles child abuse and neglect cases, internal investigations and disciplinary actions. DSS was investigating the Meza family last August when the mother, father and three children died. Authorities say the children were drugged and their throats slit by either their mother, father or both parents. Their York County home was set on fire and the parents then died in the blaze, deputies said.
